    Modern studded tires make this possible. You have to be much more careful and slow down more than in the dry & warm conditions, but still. Not only those tires are equipped with hundreds of spikes, but the compound stays soft at subzero temperatures.

    Even just one studded tire on the front (but a good one) makes a huge difference. Motorists are generally freaked out when they learn what icy surfaces a mountain biker can ride with tires like that. They are used to having poor traction with even the best studded tries for cars.

    But what I'm talking about! Most motorists are profoundly freaked out to even LEARN that there is such thing as spiked tires for BIKES, much less the aluminum encased tungsten carbide stuff!

    They keep holding on to their beliefs (that cars are for respectable people, and bikes are for clowns) even as they face traffic congestions they create themselves, and the resulting unbreathable stench and frustration, all this on daily basis.

    I'd rather be deemed insane and ride, than be respected and drive a car...

    thecrackerasscracker, that looks like end of April, beginning of May to me )

    Daylight, forest, no snow, and a great FS rig. What else does one need?
    (For me, it's still street trials training by midnights after work - dark, cold, slippery, and all the stairs are littered with cigarette butts. Still lightyears better than what people typically do, anyway!)

    I remember how scary I found gaps at first. But just keep doing them and before you know it you will realise that all you have to look at is the landing, the gap doesn't actually matter. Good work, keep it up!

    hi builttoride,
    the SuperEnduro is a kind of competitions inspired to Enduro motorbike competitions: the race consists in 3/4/5 (each race is different) runs most-on-downhill ( always less than 20% uphill) with mandatory uphill transfer stages to reach the start of the next run, you can find more informations on www.superenduro.com.

    i built my rune for fun and for downhill-marathon competitions and then i tried the first of the superenduro competitions: it is hard to reach the top with the DT2350 and 36T singlecrown but you can kick asses in the runs!
    I did 4 SuperEnduro races and i plan to do other 2 or 3 this year, if you want more informations or see more pics just send me an email... dangeroustmasi gmail.com

    In ice, yeah. Nokian freddies 2.3 in DH variant our best friends for this period of time. If to be honest, winter is only time when we can ride our bikes, because in summer we build trails. Sounds stupidly, but indeed

    We build so much wooden structures, because we too lazy for clean our trails each time.

    Great riding and nicely put together video. Thanks!

    From the sound, it looks like you have the perfect snow, dry and therefore slightly grippy.

    So threw on some Maxxis Holy Rollers and did a 35 mile road ride to DC

    About $1500 or so for the frame, theres a special deal with elka for 20% off a stage-5 shock if you buy a banshee frame right now too. If you look around the banshee forum you will see that there is a lot of brand loyalty as these guys give awesome customer service and do everything in there power to make their customers happy, and the bikes really speak for themselves as they are dialled. Stiffer than hell, extremely durable, and definitely a thing of beauty

    The one durability issue that rises up is the pivots but there has been a lot of posts that address it, they just suggest cleaning/ light maintenance every 10-20 hours of riding depending on what kind of conditions you ride in. This is more preventative than anything else, as with any bike part it will function at its best being nice a clean with a fresh greasing.

    cesalec FYI

    I have a 2009 Rune, ride 1-2 times/week average on Fromme, Seymour and occasional Cypress and occasional bike parks such as Whistler and Silverstar. I ride in all conditions, which can be pretty muddy and wet on the Shore. Got the pivots greased grease/serviced for the first time after approximately 10 months of riding. No problems at all, back end still smooth, supple and very solid.

    The black ano is super durable and still looks as good as new after a wash.

    So guys, does the Rune can be pedaled on steeps? maybe using a Lyrik? or Talas? , I like to do runs of around 10 to 20Km from time to time, which include technical trails (mini mini downhill, where an XC just dont survives)
    or is it a big hit bike only??

    Im kinda sure Im gettin a Giant Glory as exclusive DH rig, but I cant really afford 3 bikes (austrian salaries s*ck big time)

    I wouldnīt say the Rune is a big hit bike. The Rune is an all round bike with all the benefits and compromises that means (more benefits than compromises though). I do 10k climbs, and shuttle runs on it; it isnīt as light as a XC bike; yet is a very light bike, and is not as burly as a DH/Full on FR bike, still can cope with most of the terrains, drops and jumps with nice transitions.I can do 40km XC rides on it, I can do 5 ft to tranny no problem, i can do baby face rock gardens at full speed... you get the idea.

    Can it pedal on steeps? yes it can. I use a 555mm A2C fork and have no trouble in doing so. It wont climb like a pure XC steed. But it can climb on the steeps for sure.

    This bike can do it all, and do it really well. If you like to ride in a lot of conditions and can only afford one bike; this is one of the bests out there. And the best bike I have ride so far.

    The Rune is the best all rounder I've ridden. I wish I had more pics, but here are a few crappy ones from PA.

    Rune goes to Moab

    Had a great trip to Moab / Fruita with the HLC boys. The Rune was perfect for porc rim action!

    My very first ride on the Rune!!
    Rode around town trying to get the feel of the bike, she has a really good overall balance, bunnyhops really well and takes little drops with no problem. Im excited to get out on the trail and see how much better she rides than my previous bike and transition BR which I was on for almost 4 years and love it!
    A short gopro video of my first hour on the Rune, the romance is growing deeply!!

    Im six feet tall and decided to go with the Medium Rune. I came off of a Medium Bottlerocket which has the same size toptube!
    I first built the Rune with a 50mm stem and it was feeling long for me!
    So I took the 35mm off of the Bottlerocket and now the cockpit is feeling much better for my style of riding.
    The top tube on the Med BR and the Med Rune was the same 23" so I went with the Med.
    I first set her up with a 50mm stem but soon swapwd it out for the 35mm stem off of the BR as it was feeling a little long.
    I have the Rune set with the same 66 ATA 180mm 565mm axel to crown so the balanace is very close.
    Here in Japan I do alot of climbing but the trails and mountains are usually really steep with lots of rocks and switch backs through the trees. So I need a nimble flickable bike thats easy to change direction when needed. I also have 2 different jump courses I have been building for the last couple years so I like have a bike like the Bottlerocket that can do alot of different riding, Im hopping the Rune is up to the tast. Im feeling really good so far on the Rune and hope to learn alot about the bike here on these fourms. If ok I plan to post more videos and of course pictures if I get so as time allows,
    Thank you for all the cool comments!
    Ride On!!!!

    I find that just a little bit weird. Going by the geo measurements on the website, the medium Rune has the same reach as my short Rampant. Wouldn't that make it feel shorter than the medium Wildcard, which I found too long for me, when standing and pinning it? I'm 5'11" and like you, I want a small, flickable bike and was looking at the Medium Rune as my big bike.

    I know how you feel man! I was thrown off by this as well!
    The Bottlerocket my last bike was a Med.
    23" toptube and 408mm reach!!
    reading this I wanted the Med Rune for its top tube and low seat tube.
    But the reach made me really think hard.
    The Med Rune has the same,
    23" toptube however with a much shorter reach 379mm.
    The Large Rune looks closer in reach but its longer in top tube and seat tube.
    24" toptube with a 403mm reach!!
    I had to think really hard before buying the Medium and I did. I went with my gut feeling and the bike is awesome. It feels longer to me than my bottlerocket. I have it set with the same fork (180mm 66) and same stem 35mm.
    I have only had it for a week now so time will tell the truth. I loved my BR and hope to like the Rune just the same!
    I also like to ride over the rear tire for DH so maybe I got use to a smaller feeling when riding.
    On the Rune when sitting its much longer and comfortable than the BR and while riding around the house its got a longer feel. Im happy and need to also spent more time on the bike as well!
    Ride on!!

    Thats funny...

    How many of us have actually swtiched from a Bottlerocket to a Rune?

    In my case, I went from a small BR to a medium Rune.

    nicholas poetker - Oh man... I feel like a real twat now. I don't know how I read it, but I thought you were on a medium Wildcard, not a Bottlerocket. My bad.

    < sL4yEr >RuLz - I went from a MD Wildcard to a short Rampant to a SM Wildcard and back to a short Rampant and am now looking at a SM Spitfire, or a MD Rune. Does that count?

    I have had the Rune built and ready to ride for 2 weeks now a just got her out on some dirt and jumps.
    It was awesome and the Rune feels good, still getting use to it but it feels great and lands smooth. I usuall ride this course with my TBC double but wanted to try the Rune and see how she feels!
    Check out the action
    Ride On!!

    Awesome CAC!

    Is that one of the "new" frames they sent you this past year. I love and am very grateful for the frame they sent to me last year, but would of preferred the black/polished frame over the ano black/orange one I received. Anyways, awesome you are still getting out this time of year. I am hoping to ride tomorrow with snow level down to 200ft, it will be a good one!
    Ride On!

    A new Adventure

    A short trail I found while riding my Rune on a lower mountain because there was too much melting sloppy snow on my regular rout!
    The trail head was an entrance to a temple and turned out being a fast rocky single track!
    Perfect for the Rune!!

    Hey Nicholas,



    I always dig your videos, love the lighthearted fun vibe they have, and would appreciate any content you can put up on our blog (goes to a sideline blog, that we dip into to grab the odd story for the main blog when looking for some content).

    If you want to contribute, could you please email me at [email protected] so that I can send you permission to post things directly to thr banshee blog.

    Thanks,

    Yes, put them up on the blog! Really like the blog but it would definitely benefit for some more Rune specific content (of course, a Rune owner would say that). Nicholas's vids would make a great addition

    Nice skills bmxking! I held my breath a bit the first time over, cos it looked like you were mighty close to being pitched over the bars, but second time was nice and smooth! Have you ever tried fully bunny hopping over that?

    I may give that a go the next time I hit that spot up. I'm not 100% on bunnyhopping the full squish just yet. Gimme a hardtail and I could clear that.

    Yeah, takes a bit of time learning to bunny hop different bikes. Full squish technique is a bit like hartail style in slow motion... use the rebound of the rear shock to help you pop up.

    Looking good Ant, looks like cleaning all those logs at Lincoln has paid off.

    Here's a couple pics from Lincoln Woods this morning before we opened the shop.

    The rune is awesome. Pedals for miles, then happily does some doubles. Much more fun in the air than my session!

    Went out to Blackrock again (I'm really loving this place) yesterday for a little ride and practice. This time I rode Sickter Gnar. This is my second time down this trail but this time was a lot more fun and productive, since the last time was a rainy mess.

    I finally hit the road gap/drop I have been eyeballing. Now I just need to get a little faster and step up to the bigger stuff. That and I think I need a new shock. The DHX air is quite under whelming. Talk about mid stroke wallow and blow through. It handles hits fine, but for the life of me I cant seem to get any pop off of the little kickers, tables, booters or pump the trail good enough. I know I am doing it right but when I preload the suspension on lips I get nothing back. I'm calling up Elka.

    Awesome video darkslide!
    Good job on hitting the road gap its looks super fun!

    As for the DHX, I dont think is suited for this kind of riding a I too never felt comfortable with it. It always felt too stiff and just blew through its travel. It does feel good on fast rocky DH though.
    I have had 2 coils and 2 air shocks on my Rune and the coil always feels wonderful.
    I rode the roco coil and a manitou 6way with a shim stack not the spv.
    Both were awesome!
    But, I have gone back to the Roco air which is super easy to set up and the progressive stroke rides just like a coil, I love it!

    I think the Elka sounds nice and you couldnt go wrong!
    RidEOn!

    Went out to Black Rock yesterday and did a few runs down Sickter Gnar. I have already posted a video of this trail but I think this video came out better than the other one. Shot using my chest mount instead of a helmet mount. Gives you a better sense of speed. The Rune is a great do it all bike.

    Nice clip of SG! Wish I was there, but had to ship out the frame today. I was able to ride Post a bit before breaking down the bike though and got some cool h-cam with new chest mount as well. I've found the 960 res on the GP works best, due to be tallest picture when mounted on chest, but curious if you are wearing the camera upside down on your chest mount then re-programing camera to film down instead of up for better forward trail shot?
    Ride On!

    Link to the video from PC? Hey no worries though. Maybe next time. Summer is just starting and there is plenty of riding ahead. As far as my camera goes I use the 720 setting. It has a wider angle than 960 and IMOP gives a better sense of speed. And on a you-tube video you aren't going to notice much if any of a difference in picture quality between 720 and 960. And yes, if you use the chesty the best way is to mount it upside down and program the camera to shoot as such. Mounted upside down the camera has more upward adjustment for a better FOV.

    BTW: Did you warranty your frame through a shop? Just curious as to what shop. If this cracking BB thing is a problem I would like to know where to take my frame if this indeed does happen to mine.

    Sorry no link to cilp, just footage in the raw that I watched on my TV tonight while being frameless for the moment. Here's a couple of clips from my trip to Bend the other weekend though: and . The helmet cam is recorded at 960/30 fps and chest at 720/60fps. I like the 960 best for chest mount when I watched raw footeage from Post tonight, cause it shoots in the tallest frame so can he see more trail when mounted right side up whereas the 720 is too wide and cuts off the upward visual. I got to do the mounting upside down though, to see how I like it at 720/60 fps?

    Oh, I went through Banshee and Trident Sports direct (main distributor in NA) since I bought the original Rune at bike shop in Bend (3 hrs away). I hope I get my frame soon, feel little lost right now without one
    Ride On!

    A little video I made yesterday out at the Sandy Ridge Trail System about 40 miles east of Portland, OR. A trail that was built for the Rune. This bike is Tits!

    Went out to Sandy yesterday for a nice afternoon ride and to try out my new Go Pro Tripod mount. I just built up my Warranty frame so it was time for a little shake down. The Rune is a hell of a bike. Usually I shoot helmet cam footage but decided to try something different. Shooting video like this is a pain in the ass but fun none the less. Requires a lot of walking. But I do like the results. Though not something I would want to do all of the time.

    Cool clip DS18 and nice reprieve from POV, but yes looks pretty time consuming but worth the effort.

    Trail conditions looked perfect that day and nice to see the lot was not overcrowed as usual.

    I plan to one-leg pedal with my leg immobilizer on there this Friday (lower H&S only) on my new Ano Grey Rune as well!
    Ride On!

    wow, i had an incling from your pov footage, but your newest video confirms it: you are way overbiked for those smoothysmooth trails! my experience has been that the rune is a chunderhound, made for railing clapped out corners, shitkicked lines and gnarly chutes...

    or maybe i'm just jealous :P

    Well, where he is riding, the Sandy Ridge trails (not far out of Portland, OR) is pretty fun for most any bike and rider and was designed with that in mind and why it is so popular in the area, and the fact that the greater Portland area has pretty much nothing as far as trails goes. Days you will often see first timers/beginners, HT's, 29'ers, trail, AM bikes all up there at once and even FR and DH bikes walking up the road to hit the jump lines not in any of the films ("Little Monkey", "TNT"). Oregon doesn't have much in the way of rock and gnar, if so then I would have had to definitely up my bike from the Rune then. For me, the Rune is pretty close to the perfect Sandy ridge trail/AM bike. I would have to up it to a Scythe or Wildcard at the very least if anything more than that. Although the Rune can scratch the surface some in most disciplines, it is definitely not a hard hitting bike on bigger riders at least.
    Ride On!

    It is a flow trail. Smooth swoopy bermed out sections with rocks roots and chop in between. The Rune is a great bike for this trail. The trail while good for all kinds of bikes was built mostly with six inch bikes in mind. The lower half of the trail is a hoot. Fast and built like a pump track. Little hips, tables and berms. No pedaling needed. I was going a might slower than I usually do on that trail due to a storm coming through and slicking everything up. On a dry day or after a few days after a storm when the dirt is real nice the Rune flat out slays that trail. I didn't capture the gnarlier sections of the trail.

    The Rune is my only bike so it covers all of my bases fairly well. I can do all day epics or head out to Black rock or Post canyon for some free riding.

    It actually seemed like you were going pretty fast to me!

    Thank you for the Video I enjoyed that. I liked the POV where you can see your head and where you are looking while coming up to corners and such. Would be a good way to learn any mistakens you are making by taping that.

    What shoes are your wearing? They look like the mavic alpines. I'm moving to Moab and need something a little more grippy on the rock. How do you like them? what pedals are you using them with?

    These:



    I like them. They seem to be holding up pretty good. They aren't as Stiff as my last shoes but I was looking for something with a little more give.

    A rock drop and a rock garden. The rock garden is on a new trail that opened up at Sandy Ridge a couple of weeks ago called Quid Pro Flow. This was my first time through it and as you can tell I haven't found the quick line through it yet.

    it's fall on the north shore. my friend morgan's got a hard on for photographing these conditions, and made we wait around in the cold and the rain and ride nasty lines again and again... can't argue with the results, though i think my presence in the frame was kind of incidental

    Well that is BS as I don't know anyone in here but I appreciate all of the videos. Some may not be as fast or full of jumps as others but the scenery is still pretty cool and I get to see other areas around the world where people ride.
    So some may not appreciate it but don't think you speak for the community as a whole.

    i watched it. enjoyed the mounting under the downtube.

    although on friday night i was VERY close to starting a thread titled "say WOOOT if you're riding your Banshee this weekend!" so my standards on whats worthy of being posted could be on the low side. got a good highlight reel to daydream on all week

    Nice JWind!
    great to see the original line has been rebuilt on that Amasa back drop!

    From last spring- the transfer to slab in the background of your shot....I did like the original line better

    Cool. There are so many lines around here. To be quite honest, I have no idea if that one exists right now or not. Looking at my picture, it's hard to tell. Although there does apear to be some tracks there.

    The one i'm pictured in, is super smooth. Looks a a whole lot scarier from the top then it really is since it's blind. Good fun, can't wait to get back up there. At this point, Amasa + extras are in the running for favorite trail in Moab.

    It's like poor traction, high rolling resistance, but UPDs don't hurt as much )
    Fun anyway. Just different.
