    i am familiar with the 601, and it is about 300gr lighter than the V2 rune (which is literally nothing) and has jsut about the same wheelbase... so yes, I think they are really comparable (only that I think the Rune will last a lot better regarding denting etc...)
    I don't like to be on videos, but I ride with these guys (and girls) on these trails, and I know the trails very well, so you can trust me that the V2 rune will be loads of fun on them...
    Maybe there will be some Video with me riding my V2 rune riding on a trail that some friends (and I) were building over the last year or so... it is more like a mini-bikepark trail, so that won't help too much either...

    Seems you did a fantastic job developping this mountain rig - congrats so far...

    Cannot wait to ride the upcoming Spitfire of my bike mate NoStyle to check out the new KS-Link and than go for the RUNE. Maybe this baby will replace my nearly perfect Wildcard for 2013....

    In all theory and out of imagination:

    Iīm following the Runeand itīs Picture-Threads here for some Years now, and the Rune V1 and V1.5 are build up so differently - from All-Terrain to Local-DH-Racing and everything in between. Simply shows how versatile and strong the previous Runes are. The Rune V2 has advanced and evolved in almost every Aspect and is now that kind of Bike when I started Mountainbiking back in the Days: A modern, light, pedalefficiant Freeridebike, now called "Enduro-Bike". It is again build for overall Trailriding, Enduro-DH-Racing and such ... so if it is good for high alpine rocky and rooty Trails, it should excel on any Bikepark-Trail as well, whether they are gnarly, steep and technical or fast and jumpy. I mean, some "Hometrails" are alot more demanding than some smoothed-out Park-Trails. It might not be a Full-Park-Bike, so JBL123, in my Opinion the V2 should be good for that. You may want to wait for itīs bigger Brother, the KS-Link Scythe, which will fit more to that (imagine 180-200 mm Travel, 65-64 Deg HA), but nobody could quote on how good it will be when it comes to pedalling or climbing, except the Banshee-Dudes. In the Meantime the Rune V2 is one of the most aggressive Enduro-Bikes out there - Competitors will be the Nicolai ION-16 or Carver IBC-Edition, or at least the almighty Specialized Enduro. There are Pictures of Crankworx when the Rune V2 was raced hard by Banshee-Teamriders - should be ok, eh?!?

    To the Aspect of slow, technical Riding, or blowing gnarly and fast, or Descends ā la Trial/Vertride-Style:
    Am I the only one who thinks that it is mostly the Rider, his Skills and Technique - and not the Bike, knowing that some Bikes support a little more, others not that much? Isnīt it all about "getting used to it"? Isnīt the Bike itself somehow overvalued sometimes (which seems pretty much curious while Iīm excited to get my Hands on the Spitty V2 )?

    Malcon X, one question please.
    I'm 182cm tall and I'm not decided between the L and the M size.
    How tall are you ?
    How do you feel the L size ?

    I am 190cm tall with 93cm inseam...

    the bike still does not fell huge, but I am riding it with 40mm stem for now... maybe 50mm later...
    so with 182cm I would go for medium, unless you really want to go for the 30-40mm stems... standover is not an issue, so it is down to personal preference...

    i will go for the XL frame, i am 1,88cm tall and have a 95cm inseam.

    my old spicy in L, got a 5mm shorter ETT than the rune in L, but the rune got at least 2° steeper SA. the runeīs seattube is 1cm longer then the spicy, and that matters for me a lot.
    i ridin a 180mm crank, and the reverb (ok the 380mm) is on the limit extension. when i lower the reverb, at the lowest point, the saddle is still above the handlebars.

    i had the chance to ride a norco sight in XL and it feld really good, but i thought i would brake it in half, if going the normal speed the local trails

    In your position I would think twice. I am 189cm tall with 90cm inseam.
    I ride a large Wildcard with 617mm ETT and 438mm REACH. This is almost perfect. It is not too long and not too short.
    The RUNE in L ist almost identical. The ETT is 610mm but with steeper SA, so should be the same. The REACH is also very close with 441mm.
    You have to take in mind, that the REACH of the XL is 466mm. That is almost 1cm longer than a large Spezi Enduro, which is also very long. And 120cm wheelbase is a lot too.
    If you ride a 420mm Reverb together with your 180mm crankarms and the 470mm seattube of the L-RUNE you might be fine….(I ride a 450mm Gavity Dropper Classic with the Wildcards 400mm seattube)

    i will see it

    forgot to mention, i sat on a 2012 Spezi Enduro too, in XL ...

    my plan is, 2 go for a 30/35mm stem and see how it works.

    i would always prefer a bike, a little bit longer, with a shorter stem.
    on my spicy i could really go for a 70mm stem for the long climbs etc., but its so much better with a 50mm once ...

    @malcomx: there are reverbīs with a length of 380mm

    risk buying the wrong framesize for 1700€, when you can change the seatpost for ~100€? (sell the old one, buy a longer one)

    i see that point, but i took my time and compared the geometrie from my spicy and the rune, both in L, and i want to have a larger frame. the only frame which could offer this, and the good feel, i wonīt brake it - has been the rune.

    i really thought about it ... hope so

    btw: i will go for the CCDB Air - so my intention is to go fast, down the hill ... never going to ride some "vertriding". maybe if i feel so, the rune will see some bikeparkdays 2013

    Well... would be nice if it was made in Canada, although I'd even settle for Scotland.

    Can't think of anything else though, looks a beaut.

    Yeah, and that little Bro is hopefully not as "little" as one might think ...

    Hey PTD, Keith from Banshee told me "The V2 frames are 44/56 standard" so I think you have it right.

    Adriano - can you estimate the length of the hose to the rear brake? I assume you have an L frame - right?

    I just ebayed a set of Hope V2s for my rune and I am kind of worried that the rear hose will be too short.

    Hoping someone can answer this since I am brain dead when it comes to figure out bike numbers....
    I am looking at picking up a used 2012 Marzocchi RC3 EVO Ti fork. It has the taopered steerer cut to 7 inches. Will this fit on the Rune V2 or is that cut a bit to short?

    What size Rune?

    It will fit on S and M and will barely fit on L and XL. You will need to use zero stack headset and will have very little place to adjust the height of the cockpit.

    I assume typical zero stack headset ( around 10mm of stack ) and 40mm stack stem.
