    This actually has nothing to do with what I quoted, i just wanted to get your attention....Seems weird that I get advertisements to buy other bikes on the Banshee site when I click on the video/pictures of the Rune.

    Haha, good point. We have an official rune V2 video that will go up shortly so we don't just link to Vital and their various website sponsors.

I figured a large V2 w/Monarch RC3 plus is going to weigh about 7.5lbs (the same as my large V1 w/ISX Evolver shock).
    That would be a sick weight... I thought it would lean more towards 8,5 lbs in Large with CTD Float because of the bushings...

    Lets see

    Regarding itīs a virtual pivot point and the shock measure itīs 216x63

    Probably it will fit a MEDIUM tune...

    in fact, Iīve got a vivid coil rc2 in M tune waiting to put on my rune when I decide to go to the Bike Parks!!

    Have you ever changed a shifter without liner? Or changed on a Trail / Holiday-Trip?

    Haha I regularly have to defend my descision not to go with internal cable routing. I think anyone who has ever had to build or change components (especially hydraulic brakes) on a frame with internal cable routing will fully understand why I avoid it. I'm trying to save Banshee customers time, money and frustration.

    I've only ever had one frame with good internal cable routing, my Prophet MX, that came with big thick rubber tubes pushed all the way through the swing arm, changing cables on that was a breeze and they silenced any rattles too. All these bikes with tiny plastic grommets are rubbish...

    Good call on using zip-tie saddles throughout Keith, proper full length muck proofing!

    The 650B dropouts will only come in 142x12mm standard to start with. if demand increases then we may expand the options. Most good hub manufacturers offer conversion kits.

    @keith
    would the below shocks work well with the V2 rune?
    - Elka stage 5 with the v1 tune
    - X-fusion vector air HLR
    - Fox DHX air

    What is the current tune settings for the fox CTD shock?

    I was thinking of rebuilding my Elka for the V2 but the local elka representive has zero idea on how to tune it for the V2....

    The local representative is elka certified and can do all the hardware changes. Problem is they say they have no information on which valving combination to use for the V2.

    Elka have all the leverage info for the new bikes, so your local elka dealer should be able to get it from them. All the mentioned shocks should fit.

    The Fox Float CTD tune is as follows for the Rune V2:
    Boost Valve Pressure 200 PSI
    Valving Assy: 2013 FLOAT CTD BV, VTL, RTM
    Sleeve-Option LV
    Air Volume Space = 0.4
    Kashima Label Gold (Std)

    The dropout kits that come with the frames (or separately if you buy a second set aftermarket) will contain bth sets of flip chips.

    So as far as the black color option. Is that paint or Anodizing? I don't know if this is covered anywhere (but I have looked for a good 30 minutes).

    What would running 650B dropouts with a 26er wheel do to the BB height and CS length?

    Looking very closely at this frame now. Would love to get a raw frame to have it custom painted by Toxik Labs in Vancouver, would Trident be able to get me one?

    CS length would be the same as with a 650b wheel, since the axle position is the same. Assuming you used 26 inch wheels on front and back, BB height would be 3/4 inches lower than with 650b wheels.
