    Not sure where you're from, but I had a huge headache trying to track some down. Trident (Canadian distributor) ended up pulling apart/combining all the various pivot kits they had in stock to come up with a full set of bearings. The bearing kits that their website shows in stock were in stock alright - in Taiwan...

    Bearings are pretty easy to source from enduroforkseal.com AFAIK...

    Hey there, Rune V2 owner here and currently looking to replace my Kona Operator with a new DH Sled. Anyone care to share his thoughts regarding the Legend and if it's worth a buy? I've to decide between Aurum, TR450 and the Legend.
    Anyone knows if there will be more or less huge changes to the upcoming 2014 model? Keith, maybe you can shed some light on this? Would hate to invest lots of money if 3 months later the new models with lots of improvements are announced...

    From what i know, no new changes are around the corner but even if there were it won't matter because the Legend is one of the raddest DH bikes ever. Its respectable with weight, pops/playful, jumps well and is very condident inspiring through the rough stuff. I've been on the same one since they were released and in that timespan all my friends have replaces theor frames more than once and even one of my good buddies settled on a legend.

    Sounds good to me. All the FUD regarding snapped Operators made me dizzy. looking for something reliable. If it's anything as good as the Rune, I'm sold.

    Comparing a few dh bikes (Aurum, Operator, TR450), I see that the reach on a M sized Legend is really short. I'm afraid it'd feel too cramped for me (177cm). Can anyone share their experience regarding this? How does the Legend feel after all?

    I ride a large Rune but jave a medium Legend. It fits well but a large would probably be more on point.

    I'm 5'9" (basically the same height as you) and the medium feels perfect. I've played around on the large, and it definitely felt pretty big for me.

    Nice bike, Villas! That looks like a fairly light build. Any idea on weight?

    Can someone provide the cup sizes for a zero stack headset for the 2013 Legend? I'll probably look for an Acros headset, since I'm already running one on my Rune.

    ZS49/28.6 top and ZS49/30 bottom, at least in the way that Cane Creek describes sizes.

    Soon... received my frame today but it'll take a while until it's build. Still have to decide which fork I will run...

    Anyhow, I'm using a CCDB Air in the Legend and would like to align the valve so it's pointing upwards. Can anyone tell me if it's okay if I simply twist the piston, or do I really have to disassmble the air can, re-align the whole thing, and the re-assemble again?

    Edit:
    oh, and torquening values for the bushings would be great (rear & shockmount).

    You can turn the shock valve pretty easily once you let all the air out... it's infinitely adjustable. This shows the position I would recommend Banshee Legend MKII - Tested - Pinkbike

    The only bushings on the MkII are the DU bushings in the shock.

    Shock bolts should be tightened to 15Nm
    Main pivot (above BB) to 10Nm
    All other pivots to 8Nm
