    dzdale,
    Your Rune is wicked awesome!! The green almost hurts to look at! How do you like the X-Fusion Metric?

    Cheers,

    If everyone is loving these Neon Green Rune frames I have a brand new one with 27.5 dropouts in size small, sat in the box ready sell.

    Bought for my wife who has injured her hand in a race in October so no longer needs the frame.

    Give me a shout if anyone wants this awesome frame. It also comes with the CCDB Air CS

    My rad Rune

    Hello fellow Rune rider,

    Just got my new Rune built up. I decided on it based on the glowing reviews from everyone here on this community. This is easily the best reference for the Banshee Rune anywhere.

    Got my first ride on it the other day. Once I got my fork dialed it, it was MONEY! Climb well, descended better. Jumped great. Felt almost as easy to trick as my Deity. This bike does it all.

    One of the main reasons I ended up on the Rune was the amount of flexibility it gives you. I wanted to be able to Rune my Havoc UST 150 DH wheelset, and all of the drop-out options meant that I was able to do just that.

    Here is a quick build list:
    Banshee Rune, CCBD Air CS, Marzocchi 55 RC3 Ti, Havoc 150 UST, Specialized Butcher 2.3 Grid tires, E13 LG1+ Cranks and chainguide, Reverb, Zee Rr. Der. and Shifter, RF NW 30t chainring, 11-36 SRAM 1070 cass., XT Brakes with 200/180 Ice Tech Rotors, Deity DC31 Mohawk carbon bar, Easton Haven 55mm stem, Easton lock-ons, Deity saddle. 33 lbs, 2 oz./ 15,03 kg. (with Shimano M520 SPDs)

    It is just pushed WAY too far forward which is why I questioned the top tube length for you. Not only does it look goofy it is prone to bending the rails. Look at 99.999% of other bikes setups...

    the rails are at the legit max, not beyond. i ride the saddles like that on all bikes. it's not a matter of top tube length, but of power transfer, especially since i have to pull the seat post out all the way when riding uphill (and thus am far back over the rear wheel)
    i wouldn't mind a 2 degree steeper seat angle in the low /slack setting!

    some damn nice runes.. Keep em coming.

    Heres my update.

    My awesome MiL got me a rad work stand for Christmas so I threw some parts together.

    Mine wont be super uber sexy as Im buying all nicely used parts and using parts from my last bike.. but heres the build so far:

    650b except for rear dropouts, the rear tire fits but not much space, might have to bite the bullet and order the right dropouts.

    Fox float X
    Spank oozy rims laced to Chris King hubs w/ hans dampf and racing ralph rubber. they are tubeless right now but not holding air, gotta buy sealant ... sure seems like a pain in the butt??
    Xt brakes 203 fr 180R
    reverb dropper
    gravity light bar
    2013 fox float 34 650b fork, still need to send in for 2014 update.
    race face stem on there but that will be upgraded as well.
    going to try 1x10
    Just ordered a BB and a 32 tooth Race face Narrow/wide that will go on a sram x-5 cranks with a bashring. Rear cassette is 11-36

    staying slack.

    Moved mine into the slack mode and will probably keep it there. Not terrible going up and heading down is a tad more fun.

    I had it in the neutral setting. Bike ran awesome in that setting too but I noticed that i flip the travel adjust pretty quick when I'm approaching a climb so the front end gets low enough to get up the hills. Even when i'm in 160mm and the bike is slack it still climbs well enough.

    Yes, the lower setting slackens out the front slightly and drops the BB a wee bit, noticeably better for descending in my experience.

    That being said I typically have it the the middle or neutral setting as I found this the best all round compromise between climbing and descending. Ascending steep sharp switchbacks, I could not keep on line or the front down in the low setting, while in the middle setting (with a lot of body language) I can clear those sections. You really need to play around with the settings and work out whats best for your terrain and style of riding.

    Banshee Rune V2 Build Thread

    Was swinging between yeti sb66 tracer 2 and nomad.and been stalking this forum for a long time. Thanks to Jay, Keith and Xavier finally got my Black on Black Rune V2.

    Here is a quick build list:

    CCBD Air CS, Rockshox Pike DPA, Crank Bro Iodine 3, Conti XKing and Conti Mountain King, E13 LG1+ Taco Guard, E13 37T chainring, Reverb Seatpost (non stealth), Saint M820 Rr. Der. and Shifter, RF NW 30t chainring, 11-38 XTR cass., Saint M820 Brakes with 160Ice Tech Rotors, Easton Havoc carbon bar,

    Left LBS in too much hurry didn't weight the newly minted weapon.

    Went for my first ride, still perplexed how to tune the ccdb air cs shock. The runs down the hill Feels way faster from where I come from.

    The uphill with the climb switch is supposed to be more enjoyable. But my weak legs just aren't helping. Thinking if to move to smaller chain ring or go back to 2x10. Decisions decisions.

    O My God I came from a setup whereby the rear shock wouldn't allow me to add spacer... Which one is the spacer... And how does it affect climbing??
