    Rune V2 Drilling for Stealth

    I read some where on here that Banshee has ok'd drilling the frame to install a stealth

    is this true? has anyone done it?

    Or should I just buy a KS lev? I hate the reverb cable it buzzes my tire

    I'm a little opinionated on this one:
    In the ~20 years I've been riding bikes, the reverb is the most fragile bike component I've ever owned or ridden. My road bike has seen more abuse than the reverb could handle. When it worked it was super creaky. When it did break, I sent it to SRAM.... 6 weeks later I had a new reverb post under warranty.. but they sent me a 31.6.

    I replaced it with a Lev in October which has been trouble free since, and quiet. I also have a 5yr old KS-i950 which is still going strong.

    Stealth routing will do nothing to improve the performance of your bike and will only increase maintenance.

    easy call but just my .02c.

    Agree with FM. My LEV has been trouble free as well and its cable routing is super tidy, absolutely no need for stealth routing.

    I think stealth routing for all hoses and cables is nonsense in MTB. (so much more hassles)
