    I'm not really an @sshole, I just act like one online.

    Looks Sweet, A rune with bearing THANK GOD I am beyond tired of dealing with those. I don't know if Banshee has considered anybody running a 2X9/10 as it looks like it can only take an E-type front derailure.... Depending on BB shell width may or may not be able to run one??? My rune runs 2x9, I *(and i can assume most riders) want a 2X on their 6inch bikes....

    Bike looks awesome. I'll be lining up to get one to replace my current gen rune.

    Hey Keith, is there any chance we can get a comment on expected availability dates?

    Oh yeah, one more comment, hope that the front derailler is a direct mount instead of the usual seat tube collar mount.

    I was a yeti guy too when i had my AS-X... then i got my wildcard and never looked back. Now my garage is full of banshee's and this one will definitely be included. It is exactly what i'm looking for. Spitfire looks awesome too but since i have a paradox i'm looking for something a bit more enduro a little less trail.

    Nice. I wonder if they will be doing a limited production initial run like with the prime and legend? Maybe lose of us that have had Runes since 2008 will get a preference in such a scenario? *wink wink*

    my gut is telling me that they probably won't do that b/c they did it with the Prime and it is a very similar design.

    Is that the new Rune? Awesome, I've been promised one by my dealer to replace my axle-chewing Spitfire. Looks absolutely amazing!

    The frames are in full production. I was told to expect an announcement about the new line up of bikes in 3 to 4 weeks.

    We're presuming that is the new Rune since this smaller looking travel bike has been spotted as well.

    If that's the 2013 Spitfire, I'll have some decisions to make next year...

    I would never change my 2010 Spit for this new one! Tubes are way to large and I don't like the rear triangle's look.

    Actually, I would never change my 2010 Spit at all ! Just love this bike!!!

    I'm pretty sure the tubes used on the front triangle are the same ones as the original version.

    There's a good pic of the Rune V2 on VitalMTB, in the "G-Out Project.", photos taken of the final drop during the Air DH comp.

    I hope the production frames have the classic rune Rune logo.

    Saw that yellow Rune in the line a few times at Whistler with John. John was on a Legend not sure who was riding the Rune.
