    Hello guys,

    Maybe this has been addresed before in this thread, but there's 70 pages of posts, so please excuse me if I missed the answer somewhere.

    I am currently in a market for a new AM bike and I real like this new Rune 2014 amongst the others. I just wonder if any of you can compare this bike to some other competitors regarding climbing capabilities on longer climbs. What i mean is, can you notice a difference in weight against some lighter weight frames, since there can be a difference of up to 800g. Regardless of frame, i am going to build it with same components, so the weight difference will only be in frame.

    Would you recomend me this bike for lets say 20-30km climbs, 1500-2000 vertical ascent?

    I know i could build lighter bike (i've been looking at liteville 301, enduro , SC nomad... ), but i am fairly aggresive rider when going down and i don't want to worry about bike durability and quite importantly i realy like this new Rune.

    For information, now i ride specialized enduro s works 2006 (15.5kg) which realy takes alot of energy on steep long climbs. I tend to build Rune in at around 13-13,5kg. What do you think, will it climb alot better or just slightly. And how would you compare climb capability of Rune built at 13kg to another AM rig at lets say 12kg due to lighter frame.

    I know my questions may seem a bit silly, but i just didn't have a chance to ride alot of other bikes, so i'm asking here for some directions.

    Will appreciate any relevant informations and thoughts.

    The Rune will climb. I wouldn't say it is an awesome climber but it does get up the hill. The rear is really active while climbing, not from bobbing but from obstacles in the trail so you get a lot of great traction. The weight can be noticeable the longer the climb and personally when I climb the bike I need to drop my fork. Otherwise the bike feels slack, because it is. Keep in mind I have mind in the slack setting. The only other setting i tried was the neutral setting. Mine is just under 31lbs, with XX1 a short stem and 31.5" bars. I'm sure you can set the bike up much better for climbing than I have. You said you're an aggressive descender, if that is the case this bike is pretty unreal. I haven't been on many of the Rune's competitors but my buddies have and they've ridden my bike. They all comment on how stable the bike feels in all aspects of riding.

    Mine's about 14.5kg, 1x10 34t 11-36t and is in the slack setting.
    I've only done one ride which was 35km and 1000 metres of climbing on technical rocky sections. I've go the CCDB Air with CS and it climbs far better than I was expecting it too. I've had an Orange Five for the last 5 years and it's noticeably more tractable than that was. Can't say I noticed the weight tbh. You sound like a similar rider to me, uphills are necessary just to get to the good bits??
    Even if it was a pig on the climbs, I wouldn't mind, because the way it descends is just awesome compared to my old single pivot. I instntly felt at home on it and was throwing it about like my downhill bike after about 5 miles.
    Maybe it's 'new bike love' but I can honestly say it has blown me away with just how good it is, get one with a CCDB Air CS and you won't be disappointed.

    Thanks for the answers guys.
    Yes i do have to earn my downhills, thats why i'm looking for good climber/descender. I also have a Demo 8, but i only use it in bikeparks. I even use my enduro bike when i get a shutle to my local hill, cuz the ride is much more fun comparing to demo slugish feel if trails are not steep/fast enough.
    And i was thinking about rune ccdb air cs option yes.
    I am also considering Spitfire with DBair CS. I've seen people say it climbs realy good and descents same or better then some other 160 bikes.
    Every now and then we also go for a all day tour, on which i would be more confortable with lighter trail bike, but i can't have a whole arsenal of bikes in my garage. Thats why i'm having such a hard time deiciding on which bike to get.

    Thank you! Excuse my noobness. 73mm refers to the bb, for cranks I only hv to choose between single chainring/2x and 170/175 length right? Is spacer a must and does it come with the bb? Thanks again

    Yes, that's right. The spacer will come with the bottom bracket. It'll probably come with 3 which is for a 68mm shell.

    Just a question. And please don't get mad at me. Why are you buying the highest end racing crank and you don't even know the basic standard your bike is?
