    Cheers NoStyle, I did actually see those posts a few days ago but I couldn't find them just now.

    Thanks :)

There will be a list to come when compability is fixed. :thumbsup:


    auch wenn man 9 fach fährt (22-32 vorne und hinten 11-34) bzw. einen 3x9 XT Umwerfer vorne?
    Ich glaube der 3x9 Umwerfer wird an der Schwinge oder Stebe stossen. Muss man halt probieren, wenn der Rahmen da ist.

    Uhh sorry mate, I have posted this question in the "Spitfire 2013-Thread", not here! :madman:

    @ bikeman_2
    Iīm sorry, but I canīt give really proper Information, especially for Triplering-Setup in Front! Keith used a Shimano XT on his Proto-Spitty and his answer was: XT works, SLX does not. Think he runs Dualring, but I donīt really know. Maybe Keith has some new Information and can chime in according to this again ...

    I personally would recommend buying a SRAM S3 FD, as they have more clearance than any Shimano offerings we have tested so far. We have tried all 2x10 and 3x10 2012 and SRAM FD's and they all clear, although the 2x10 options have more clearance. That said if you do want Shimano, then the option I'd recommend is the FDM-985-E2.

    it is really good to see that companies care about their customers!

    i also orderd my rune v2, and cant wait to shred it, unfortunally i have to wait for the 2nd batch ...

    hope the decals on the yellow frame is just as awesome, as seen on the exposition pics over the internet!

    Do you have any experiences with the fd-771-d?

    Those two are not DM S3!!!

    These ones should work from Shimano:

    XTR FD-M985 2-fach


    XT FD-M785 2-fach Top-Swing

    XT FD-M785 2-fach Top-Swing

    The Shimano XT Double Front Derailleur FD-M785 has been designed to optimize its function with two chainrings. To this end, the cage length and shaping is specific to the smaller diameter differential between the big and little rings on a 2x10 DynaSys drivetrain. Whether you run a 26/38t or a 28/42t crank, this is the changer you'll want.

    Same Biker have (like me) 2x9 and wanted to use this.

    Does that mean I have to move up to a medium? I'm a tweener.

    Woah, that looks awesome. Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to finish my build until the weekend. You should start a new thread for the production V2 as you're the first to build one up ;)

    Right now with the 2ply high roller tire in the rear plus slime tube --> 14,7 kilos (32,4)
    but i will change the rear tire asap (IīLL put the new schwalbe hans dampf super gravity) so the final weight will be 14,2 kilos (31).

    I think itīs a right weight for a very rasonable build...

    @AdrianoMTB - nice build! good to see the first rune v2 built up to life!

    Keith, could you estimate the difference in weight between the anodized and the powder couted oneīs?
  • 10-31-2012
    builttoride
    Ano frames are lightest, compared to ano powdercoat adds maybe 100-150g depending on size, and clearcoated frames add about 150-200g depending on size.

    Would also be interesting if the 6.5lbs for a RUNE with M-frame on the banshee homepage is actual???

    although medium, anno without shock is probably not far away from 6,5#...

    Are the "raws" clear coated or polished?

    They're clear coated.

    If raw is 7.3ish pounds, I'm guessing a medium is around 7. It'll be interesting to see what the posted official weight is. I don't have a problem with the extra few grams if it translates into better longevity/durability.

    Hi,

    I've a bunch of Rune 650b suspension questions:
    1) Does the 650b specific lower link reduce the travel?
    2) Is the CCDB which comes with the frame pretuned for Rune?
    2) What fork w/ travel adjust would you choose for a 650b Rune?

    thanks
  • 11-02-2012
    Haus Boss
    - High quality sealed bearings like the Prime >> CHECK
    - Increased strength (gusseting) around the bottom bracket >> CHECK
    - Slightly longer top tube >> CHECK
    - Replaceable rear dropouts (w/ ability to run multiple rear hub setups) >> CHECK
    - Adjustable geometry like the spitfire >> CHECK
    - 10-15mm more of rear travel >> CHECK
    - Beefed up frame- I honestly don't mind a slightly heavier frame if it means the Rune can be ridden that much harder >> CHECK
    - Carbon offering >> NOPE
    - Shorter Chainstays >> CHECK


    I was just looking at the original post and first few replies of this thread. Not bad Bashee!

    You forgot slacker HTA's - probably most important change if you ask me. But yeah, Keith nailed it. Now the question is... do I wait for a carbon version? :)

    Cheers,

    G

    PS - This thread has strayed so far off of the original intent (I mean really - who cares what color to choose, lol) maybe we need a new one for just "The new Rune V2!"

    I got a question regarding available colors for the rune.

    For the first batch there are blue ones.
    Will they remain available for the next batches also?

    There was a statement on an upcoming yellow option.
    Is it the fluorescent one that came on the prototype or more like shown on the renderings of the prime?

    There was a post about all of this somewhere but I can't find it anymore.
    Can you help me out?
  • 11-10-2012

    ENOUGH WITH THE COLORS ALREADY, LOL! How does that even remotely pertain to the thread's initial question??? Start your own "color options" thread!

  • 11-10-2012

    Orange ano can't happen I'm afraid. They higher quality alloy we use on our frames means that we only have a small selection of dark ano colours that will work.

    Any recommendations? I'm guessing something with an air chamber like an RC4 to provide some ramp up, sent to PUSH to get the valving correct.

    I'm try to do direct compare with Killer-B... it seems to Killer-B has lower BB height that Rune in low position...

    BB drop on the rune V2 in low position is -2mm.

    Has anyone put a Vector Air hlr on the Rune V2? if so How do you like it?

    Thanks, I know this is an old thread but Im really interested on how the vector air performs on this frame.
