    Question: anyone have 2 setups for their rune ? Something like a DH mode ( wheels, tires, Eric) and trail like wheels,etc?

    Didn't notice that but the mudguard is correct, you can get the one below and just drill the holes. There are hundreds knocking around or are you saying the bolts aren't for that?

    Very cool bike!!!
    I really like the stealth look.

    I'm expecting that mine will have a similar look and set up (monarch plus included)

    Regarding the shock, that is a '12 model, right? What damping setup do you have there?
    My Monarch is an MM and the tech guy at the LBS suspects that at least compression will have to be changed.

    Cheers.

    Regarding the screws question, isn't the location too low for a mud guard?
    But for a downtube guard, that makes more sense to me.

    If found this one:
    Banshee Rune V2 Build Thread-imag0896_1-1-.jpg

    It seems cool.
    It is from RockguardZ, specific Rune model
    Banshee Rune - BANSHEE

    You may notice that in the picture there are no screws on the downtube, but then again, it is a 2013 Rune (white decals on black satin finish).

    Cheers!

    Well... had only one ride so far. I does feels slightly different than 26. I did a small jump and it does feels a little "big" i think..maybe also because i was using blur trc before..anyway in terms of speed it is definitely faster, cornering still feels more or less the same although at first i did feel a little tall in cornering the bike. One thing for sure i did feel more confident in the steeper and rough section...but sometimes i do missed the feeling of suspense using a 26 inch and a shorter travel . Overall i think if i was already have the rune in 26 setup i wouldn't be bothered to change...but since when i bought the frame i plan it to set it up to be 650b. It is a good progression though..

    The older X-Fusion Vengeance forks could be run with both wheel sizes and I have been running it with 26" wheels since I first got it in 2010.

    I run 26 wheels with a pike (650b) for a while no problem at all.

    I ran a pike for 650b as well as using a 650b dropout on 26 inch before i converted to 650b. It was fine. Geometry wise, It is hard to tell the difference.

    I just converted to 650b after 12 months on 26. same model forks, tires and wheels.

    Simply put - the Rune is a better and faster bike with the larger wheels.

    I've been running the rune with 27.5 wheels/dropouts. I just put on the 26" drop outs with the 27.5 wheel, the shorter chain stays are rad! I put it in the middle setting and it looked like the same bb height as the 27.5 drop out in the middle setting when i compared them, just way shorter chain stays. Noticeable difference in lifting the front end up and railing corners. I'm using a racing Ralph tire in the rear with 10mm or so of clearance. Makes me wish i wouldn't have spent 100 bucks on the 27.5 drop outs..
