    Although, I'm a little disappointed about the bushing play with the DBair.

    I have the same!!

    I buy now this one:

    I noticed that Rune has the ISCG tabs on the same plane as the BB shell face. Experience taught me that this often causes interference with the granny when using a Stinger-like chain guides.

    Since I will be running a double in front, this is an issue for me. I will be using Race Face Atlas cranks - so I only have about 2mm of chainline adjustment due to the retarded way RF cranks set the bearing pre-load.

    Is there a concete reason for such placement of the ISCG tabs? AFAIR the standard does not specify that and many frames which are sold with 2x10 have the tabs recessed some to avoid the problem above. My ex Spesh enduro had the tabs recessed by 2.5mm from the bb shell face.

    As for my question - shaving 1mm or so of material from the tabs is a no-go warranty wise - right?
    Shaving material of the ISCG will not void warranty unless any warranty claim is related to ISCG location, as it shouldn't have any affect on the rest of the frame. We are reasonable here at Banshee. Although you may have slight delay if you did ever file a warranty while the distributor checked things with us.

    The reasons I mounted the ISCG flush with the BB are that this setup does not require spacers for most chainguide setups our customers use, and as 2x10 and 1x10, and even 1x11 become more popular this is beneficial to most customers. It also is what is required if running hammerschmidt. Plus it makes for better tolerance of facing. I rarely want yet more standards in the bike industry, but for that location I do wish that all crank and chainguide manufacturers followed the same standard to offer inter compatibility.

    I have a stinger on my 2X10 setup. The pulley overlaps the bash guard by a couple of mm, but it works just fine. I used a BB mounted stinger rather than an ISCG version. It looks to me like an ISCG bracket would work the same, though.

    Can I get some clarification on the recommended spacers for the Cane Creek Double Barrel Air? I bought the shock separately and from Keith's post it appears like they recommend installing the largest supplied volume spacer. ptd, it looks like you got the shock with the frame? Was the spacer pre-installed? It looks like the spacer pack is untouched.

    What is the point of the spacer anyway?

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Black does look sick......mine is tracking to arrive some time next week. I went with the Fox but will also be getting my Elka Stage 5 rebuilt for the new geometry.

    would like to see some sort of comparison on this bike of air vs coil!

    Absolutely pumped with all of these picture popping up!!

    HOLLA!!

    The base settings that we liked best for the rune V2 were:

    Xvol can, 1 large vol spacer, LSR:14, LSC:10, HSC:2, HSR:2

    But everyone is different, (different weight, riding style, terrain and preferances) so we included a bunch of extra volume spacers to allow our customers to fine tune the shock exactly to their liking.

    Adding a volume spacer makes the shock more progressive. So if you find yu are bottoming out too easily, try adding another spacer, if you feel you are not getting full use of ravel, remove a volume spacer. The volume spacers obviously only work in step intervals, but the shock is so tunable that if you spend time dialing it in you can get the exact feel you want.

    Anyone coming from a V1 with an Elka to the V2 with the CTD? Any impressions? Or if anyone going from V1 with Elka to V2 with Elka. How much is rebuilding the Elka for the new geometry costing? I am pretty torn on upgrading, I havent had the bushing issues, and replaced them once in the year I've owned it due to normal wear.

    It was around $180 for the rebuild, new bushings, and return shipping. The Elka feels better on the v2 than the v1 so far. No bobbing, great traction, plush but not mushy.

    Economy build... Will take it off road for the first time tomorrow. I have a seriously screwed up knee, so probably won't get to do more than a little XC, and some aggressive limping. Still waiting on the 650b dropouts. I have a 160mm Lyrik I'm thinking of using for the 650b build. I don't think the Totem with the extra 3/4" height from the wheel would work very well.

    On the size, this large feels shorter than the large Spitfire it's replacing - a lot shorter. I'm just under 6' and feel like I could go to an XL and still be happy. I'm going to need a longer stem as it is.

    Now that is my kind of bike

    Altho you worry me when you say that at 6' it feels short. I have an XL on order and with me at 6'5" it might prove too short with 45mm stem :/

    The stem that's on it is the 30mm stem that came off the large Spitfire. I think a 50mm stem will be about perfect. I do tend to prefer larger bikes than what is recommended for my height.

    I use a Crank with 22-36 and the chain roams at the high gears on the FD.
    Now go back to the 22-32 an it is OK.

    In the next Time i buy a Shimano 2x10 or 3x10 FD with E-Typ.

    Just got back from my first ride on Das Runestein Zweit (my new Rune). I definitely need to spend some time tuning the DBair to my exact likings, but here's my quick stoke on the new Rune:

    I had sold my Rune V1 after it started to develop play and ended up on a Wildcard. The wildcard is a super playful bike that is perfect for jump lines, but not so well well suited for the 4-5 hour rides I like doing. I never felt comfortable on technical and steeper lines on the Wildcard, and my riding definitely suffered from my lack of confidence on the bike.

    On the new Rune I immediately felt comfortable. The suspension platform paired with the ultra stiff rear end translates into a bike that motors up fire roads as well as techier sections too. I liked the ultra-plushness of the wildcard when descending, but it definitely did quite a bit of wallowing when mashing on the pedals- especially when pushing, which can be quite annoying when you're riding lots of rocks! Going downhill the new rune is amazing (I have it set in neutral, but it's probably closer to 65 degrees since my bike has a 560mm A2C). If I had to sum up the new Rune in one word, it would be responsive. Compared to the V1 and Wildcard, I noticed the front wheel tracks a lot better. While the front tire stays firmly planted to your line, the rear wheel is super easy to whip around- I think my case of Aggie-itis just got worse (the act of whipping your rear wheel like Aggie). The new school geometry felt very natural and balanced.

    After taking a 15 year hiatus from mountain biking, around 3 years ago i started riding my XC hardtail several times a week. After being re-bitten by the mtb bug, I upgraded to my first full suspension bike, a Santa Cruz Butcher. I was blown away by the new lines I could ride and how fast I could ride them on a 6" bike. It was an eye opening experience that exponentially increased my love of riding. I ended up replacing my butcher with a 2011 Rune. I always felt cramped on the butcher and the rune v1 fit me so much better. The rune v1 was a lot of fun, but I didn't have that same level of exuberance I had when first riding the butcher. Maybe I was chasing that first high that I would never be able to reach again. Enter Das Runestein Z (Rune V2). Wow. I feel like I'm on a mini-DH bike compared to the Butcher and V1. It's just damn fun and confidence inspiring. All of the confidence I had lost while riding the Wildcard has been completely wiped away by one ride on the new Rune. I can't wait for my next ride Although, I'm a little annoyed it's winter as I think this bike is the perfect weapon of choice for an all day ride in the alpine!

    I'd be really interested in a Spitfire V1 / Rune V2 comparison. Not sure which way I should go right now... currently on a spitfire and cant decide whether I should get a new rune or new spitfire.

    I must revice my INFO for the SRAM FD. This morning I put a 2. Plastic-Ring on my Crank (Shimano HONE). And...ist works perfekt with the X0 SRAM 22-36 for 2x10 Speed. with a 36 Pinion.

    Wouldn't a Spitfire V2 / Rune V2 comparison make more sense if your possibly upgrading to one or the other? (or did you mean to say that?)

    I think I will need a little more saddle time before I can make a reasonable comparison, and I need to get the stem and bar length setup more to my liking. The longer bars seemed like a minor change, but I had a hell of a time getting used to them. In any case, even with the short stem, I feel a lot more forward on the bike – the pedals feel further back than anything else I ride. THAT will take some time to adapt to. I will spend some time getting it setup better this week, and try to post something worth reading next weekend…

    No I meant what I wrote but a V2/V2 comparison would be equally interesting. I understand this sounds peculiar but the reason is simple. Upgrading my V1 spitfire to a V2 Spitfire is a no-brainer really. However I am considering a Rune instead. I'm attracted to the reported stiffness and overall downhill grunt of the Rune but would love to know how much climbing ability you loose compared to V1 Spitfire and whether its a bit boring for general trail riding.

    I wonder which color of frame suit me when I have lot of white parts like Bos stuffs, Lg1 chainguide, sadde etc.
    Im interested of raw and yellow . Black is too simple, I have already a black frame for 4x

    Id love to look at images of such configs (raw and yellow with white parts but black rims?)

    I know it is matter of taste, I have hard time to figure out an picture.

    Hi Keith!

    Are these base settings the same for the CCDB Coil?¿?? (these settings are from the CCDB AIR)

    LSR - 14 clicks in
    LSC - 10 clicks in
    HSR - 2 turns in
    HSC - 2 turns in

    The rough tune layout may be helpful for the DBcoil, but these are specific to the DBair. I'd suggest that you start around these settings and tune to your preferances from there.

    Size large with dropouts, hanger, 12 mm thru axle and CTD weighed in at: 8lbs 5oz. This does not include the seat post or seat collar. In comparison a large V1.5 with a DHX Air 5.0 weighed 7lbs 10oz.

    I must have read your comment to my post 10x's and I must admit that I just can't make sense of it. What does chili have anything to do with it other than making me hungry?!

    Just guessing but I would guess he thinks you own a Knolly Chicoltin as well.

    Finally got all the parts after close to 4 weeks after getting my frame. About 2 pounds heavier then I hoped for at close to 35pds. Besides the fork I can not figure out where all the extra weight is compared to the other frame on here that I saw with the CCDB Air. That one came in at 33pds.

    Rune CCDB Air Option

    My warranty replacement is in queue, and after seeing some of the V2s built up, I can't wait.

    Quick question, when I was conversing with Trident, I was told the CCDB Air wasn't an option. I am more than willing to chip in a bit more for the upgrade.

    Anyone have the low down if Trident allows this upgrade option? If so, I would like to go that route. Any assistance with this is greatly appreciated.

    I am pretty sure if you go to the thread below Trident said it is a $200 upgrade with them once they are available. Post number 93.

    "We have Cane Creek Double Barrel Airs on order with Banshee for Legends, Primes, Runes and Spitfires. We are receiving our first shipment for Runes next week and will have the ones for the other models available by the beginning of February.

    They are only sold with a frame since we are not an authorized Distributor.

    The boys from Banshee have been really impressed with the performance and say that they are worth the $200 up charge over the Fox offering. I personally have minimal experience with the DB air, except for one ride on the first generation, so I'm looking forward to trying a properly tuned one in the future.

    OK, I swapped out the 45mm stem for an 85mm stem and shortened the bars to 700mm (amazing what 80mm of extra bars does to the feel of a bike). I also changed out the Vivid for a Pushed Monarch. For some reason I couldn’t get enough rebound damping on the Vivid. I’m waiting on a reducer headset lower for the Lyrik. At the moment I’m happy with the Totem, but it's really too much fork if you like long technical climbs.

    I don’t think you will lose the fun factor with the V2 Rune compared to the V1 Spitty. I can’t tell if it’s new-bike-effect, but this thing is a joy to ride. I have only been on XC trails so far, and taken a couple of low drops. I’ve also only played with the dropout tabs with the centered hole. It climbs very well, though as I mentioned I need to swap out the Totem. I’m also still struggling with an arthritic knee that doesn’t want me pedaling while out of the saddle, so my impressions on climbing are probably pretty skewed.

    Like someone else mentioned earlier in this thread I initially had trouble with manuals, but the problem went away by the second ride. My thinking is that being further forward means you have to start the manual sooner, but not pull any harder. If the V1 Spitty had any serious handling flaws it was the effort needed to pick the front end up.

    So I got to take mine out today on a true all mountain climb/descend ride with plenty of big drops and hits to air it out. Initial impressions are stellar. This bike absolutely rips the DH. I am still getting used to my Fox CTD but it feels pretty good however I have a really hard time feeling the difference between the three modes because I descended in climb mode and climbed in descend mode and I never even noticed. I am coming off an Elka on my V1 Rune which I thoroughly enjoyed because it was set it and forget it. I am currently on a size Med in the Neutral setting on the flip chips. I can't wait however to try it in the slack mode but that is another day. The bike climbs surprisingly well as compared to my V1. I did however def notice the lower BB on the climbs (pedal strikes) but noticed it equally as much on the descends when i hit stuff in hyper speed. The bike jumped very well as well which if it was easier I would attach some pictures. Over all I think banshee did a wonderful job on the redesign and this thing is going to get a lot of use and see plenty of airtime!

    HOLLA!!!

    Dang, I was worried about this. I'm building a V2 for Downieville which mostly features super rocky descents. Pedal strike often equals ejection up there. I'd be curious to hear from V2 riders how the chip in the steep setting feels on the downhills. Does it kill the mini-downhill feel that a lot of guys are reporting?

    It descends great in the steep setting. Still very planted and stable.

    The steep setting on this bike is still slack compared to most other bikes in its class. I run a Lyrik with an A2C of 555mm. In the slack setting I'm just a butt hair under 65 degrees. Thinking of moving to the neutral position.

    Update: Also just weighed it, and it came in at 31lbs 3oz. Not bad considering I have heavier tires!

    There is also a phone app for the 2013 Fox shocks and forks that helps set up sag. Only works with the 2013 models though.

    I'm thinking of getting a Rune v2 and want to run it 650. So, I am curious, has anyone tried the XFusion Vengeance on a Rune V2 and how does it do?
    I have that frame/fork combo, won't have it build up up until end of Jan, I'll post experience then. Using Stans Flow 650b rims.

    I emailed XFusion USA with the same question, got a reply from the sales/service manager, he confirmed the forks are 650b out of the box, with no need to add a travel reducing spacer (got a quick reply thanks XFusion).

    According to this thread
    The 650b tire dimensions thread
    the Hans Dampf 650b has a diameter of 705mm.
    This would leave 42.5mm of crown clearance at bottom out (565-(705/2) -170). I'm also planning to use the High Roller II 650b, say that's 720mm diameter, leaves 35mm crown clearance (565-(720/2) -170).

    As for head angle, that's what I'm looking forward to! Depends on what you like I guess, for climbing/flat trail cornering I haven't found it to be a negative on other trail bikes, maybe some technique change is required...

    However, I am considering an XFusion Vengeance fork, which has an axle to crown that is (at 565mm) 20mm longer than the ones it is specced for...I understand the geo is 65 to 66 degrees, adjustable, assuming a 545mm a to c fork. With 565, I am concerned this thing will be too slack for anything but downhill.
    If you are concerned about the slack angles, then you could either lower the fork internally to 150mm to get desired axle to crown height to help keep BB low too, or you could run an angle set to steepen things up, but this will result in a higher BB.

    Personally I would lower the vengeance to 150mm to get 545mm axle to crown height. The damping on the vengeance is good enough that you can run this setup without feeling you have too little travel.

    Im running a Lyrik with an A2C of 555. In the slack setting I am shade under 65. Im also considering a vengeance and i would have no qualms whatsoever about mounting it up. Swap the flip chips for the steep ones and your going to get around a 65 degree HA. Which in my opinion is fine because this bike climbs just fine in the setting I have now.

    A second concern I have is with the Vengeance's clearance for the beefier 650 tires. I am going to want to be able to run at least 2.35s in there. I've heard there are some clearance issues but this is surprising since the fork is approved for 650b. (I had an Xfusion Velvet fork and had no such issues with 650b and it was a great fork with lots of clearance, even for Nevegal 2.35s so I am doubting the accuracy of this last bit).


    So, I am curious, has anyone tried the XFusion Vengeance on a Rune V2 and how does it do?
    Just plug in the numbers:

    This fork has me really puzzled. It seems to have un-needed excessive amounts of clearance built into it (especially for 26" wheels). Your #'s and math are correct and 42.5mm of crown clearance seems crazy to me at bottom out with a 705mm 650B tire. It would clear a 29" tire for petes sake never mind the tallest 650B right now which is the NN 2.35" @ about 708mm. I also seriously doubt the new High Roller 650B will be anywhere near 720mm (28.35") which would make it just a gigantic 650B tire.

    Yeah I'm surprised by the clearance on paper (in a good way), will be interested to see when built up...

    I have a 2011 Vengeance which has 160mm of travel and an A2C of 560mm. I run my rune in the neutral position, and honestly it doesn't feel that slack when riding around XC trails. However, when you're pointed down, it definitely becomes noticeable how much better the V2 handles the steeps compared to the V1. I have avoided running it in the slack position due to the same concerns you've expressed. After riding the V2 for about 3 weeks, I'd probably be more concerned with more pedal strikes than the super slack HA.

    Yeah, sweet video. Love the transitions from snow to dry valley with the sun bursting through. Nice!

    Nice edit and cool to see HC in the snow, but man I got one word of ya.....Blackrock...as it was pretty prime all the way from the top (outside of Bonzai 5). Sorry I didn't call you yesterday due to leaving the phone at home and not realizing until well on the road. BR is probably the best rolling trail right now in the whole NW for that matter as it has been protected from low snow. Go get some and let me know how the V2 digs it as I am still waiting for mine of course.
    Ride On!

    Took the new Rune out for a ride around Taipei, handled almost 3,000ft of climbing without much trouble in the slackest setting. Hit up a nice wet and steep trail at a little DH spot we have in the city on my way home.

    Not too bad, considering it's in a city of 3million people. I've been pleasantly surprised by the riding here in Taiwan thus far.

    I have the day off tomorrow so I'm heading out to BR while the gettin is still good. Partly cloudy and 41 degrees. Quite doable. Going hit Bonzai and Sickter. If youre off give me a call.

    Strange these 2012 Vengeance 170mm have A2C of 542mm ish... wipers go up to about 5mm from the crown bits at bottom out...

    Bike looks sad without it's bits on!

    Jeez, can you please measure that A/C again and also confirm the 170mm of travel on the stanchion.

    Your talking a 20mm difference as to what X-Fusion states on their site and that's a BIG difference

    Prior to my vengeance I had a 170mm lyrik. At one point I had placed them side by side to see if I could notice a difference with the A2C, and the vengeance was slightly taller/longer. How many mm of stanchion is your fork showing right now?

    My bad, I was measuring to the bottom of the crown, not the crown race.
    Axle to crown race is 565.

    There is 178mm exposed stanchion, 8mm left at bottom out.

    I did some tyre clearance calculations in an earlier post which are wrong.
    Based on 540mm axle to bottom of crown, a 705mm diameter hans dampf 650b will leave 17.5mm clearance 540-(705/2)-170. 720mm diameter leaves 10mm.

    Oops.... Correct now?

    Ah, it all makes more sense. Thanks for the corrections

    Still, allot of clearance built into this fork and quite possibly to much IMO. I don't think were gonna be seeing a 720mm 650B tire (28.3") yet there is more than enough clearance for one.
