Hi everyone!

I think I´m the first to have the official and final Banshee Rune v2. Nothing but to say that this is the really first bike I see it´s almost perfect!!! Since the geometries (absolutely awesome) until the suspension system... probably the best I´ve ever try in my life ( my last bike was a Ibis mojo hd and it was a good bike too but... this Rune is outstanding)

Well.. before the photo session it´s important to point out some data to get a better idea about this kind of bike...

Frame weight --> Size L ( 3.6 kilos With shock) ( 7.9 lbs)

The main points of this bike are

Head Angle (With lyrik 170mm rc2 dh coil) --> 65º
Seat Angle --> 73,5º
Bottom Bracket Heigh --> 345mm ( So less than the geo chart even with the lyrik)
Wheelbase --> 1185mm

Bike Check (see image)

And the images.. ENJOY THE VIEW GUYS!! :D

That bike looks fast just sitting there!
That´s true... this is a massive enduro.... another level respect to the others enduro... Right now I understand Keith words... " These bikes are designed to be ridden, and ridden hard. "

He was right....

Oh yeah!! :)

My first guess for the weight of the frame (L, blue. CTD) was 3,8kg. If yours is 3,6kg, the blue one should be around 3,7. That's good. :)
I think it´s not a weight weenie but it´s acceptable... did you see the bike?? It´s simply a rock!!:D

The Chris king model you should choose to build on this bike is CHRIS KING INSET-2

that´s perfect!

3,6kg with FLOAT CTD?....:eekster:.... That would mean 3,4 kg only for the frame. This is far more massive than I expected. My Wildcard L-frame is around 3,7kg without shock, so that´s pretty close for an AM-frame to a freeride frame....seem to be the replacement for the Wildcard in some way....This bike should handle it ALL....

The shock it's probably around 300g. 200g is the weight of a very small Fox, 6.5''x1.5'' or something like that and this one is much bigger.

Ok, 3.3kg sounds much better...:D

It is the same league as an Helius AM oder an Cheetah Mountain Spirit Enduro for example. But it also is 300g more than a Specialized Enduro. This one indeed is a tank...:rolleyes:
