    Rune - stiff?

    Anyone able to compare the stiffness of the new Rune to the Tracer? Specifically BB area and rear end lateral flex. Or for an even more obscure comparison the Rune vs the Ibis HD(my last bike).

    Also, any word on frame weight for the medium Rune?

    Liking the geo of the Rune. Nice work. Vanguard.

    Thanks

    Can't comment on stiffness, but the new site says 6.5lb for a med Rune w/o shock.

    Sick weight.

    With the rp23 ctd the stimated weight will be 7.1 pounds. great weight for a brutal enduro bike...

    The Rune vid on Banshees site shows them tweeking the rear wheel and there is no flex.

    I gotta say, that's a pretty ridiculous test that most AM frames would pass with flying colors. But, if the v2 is stiffer than the v1, I'll be more than happy.
