    I'd stick to the rune. I think climbing on a darkside is possible depending on how you build it but it would do disservice to the frames full potential

    Just my opinion though, I see a lot of builds on the darkside where people put a wide range cassette, single crown fork with a climb switch air shock on so what do I know :-P

    The rune is one capable bike though.

    I kinda wonder if a180mm fork would be too much for the rune, if it would bring some disbalance to the complete bike...

    This is the thing with the Rune... When I rode one I had time with 26 wheels on a 180 MM Zocchi 66 and a 160 lyrik. If I was staying local and pedalling - the lyrik did the trick. When it was time to go to Angelfire - the 66 was thrown on and i put the bike in the slack setting - total plow machine with about 35% sag in the rear.

    Would I live with a Rune @ 180? Probably not - but if you have a park build its a great match. Thinking about getting a cheap set of 26x150 wheels for my wife's Rune when we go to visit parks - i still have my 66 and she feels the Pike has too much feedback in brake bumps.

    I'm thinking of throwing everything from my IH Sunday (saint 820 drivetrain, havoc ust wheels, havoc/Thomson cockpit) on a banshee frame. If it's a Rune, gotta get a new crankset 68/73mm and an enduro fork (I want a 180mm but am wondering if it's too much). If it's a Darkside, I can keep my present saint 83mm crank and a 180mm fork would be fine.

    What hub spacing do you have? Although the darkside has a 142 option, I think the chainline is better with 150.

    Fwiw Keith said before the Rune was not built for a 180 fork and it would void the warranty. He suggested building a Darkside instead.

    From the Rune FAQ:
    "Q: What fork travel do you recommend?
    A: The optimal fork travel for the rune is 160mm, however the frame is covered to run up to 180mm single crown forks."

    Hey I asked it on here in this thread. I have no reason to make it up.

    Good to know, im running a 170 fork and considered dropping it to 160 to lower my bb.

    Well, the Sunday is a 83mm bb, 12x150mm hub frame. A Darkside would allow me to keep both rear wheel and crank, a Rune would allow me to keep only the wheel. Whichever I choose, I will keep the 12x150 rear, that's for sure! Reason for my wondering is that i want to go enduro, but am more keen on the downs than the ups (haha, no shit? ) and my priority is going down.
