First up thanks to Chris at Drop n Zone in Bellingham. I was in contact with Chris on a daily basis for weeks deciding on all the parts to put on this beast. After I placed the order he kept me up to date on the status, answered all my additional questions and shipped it to me in San Diego. I would def order another bike from these guys.
I sold my Giant DH team (45+lbs) and plan to sell my 2004 Enduro and use the Rune for everything from CC to light DH.
Here are the specs:
2008 Rune Frame (L)
Cane Creek 110 headset (1.5")
2010 Fox 36 Van RC2 (1.5)
2010 DHX RC4 Coil (also have DHX 5.0 Air, haven't ridden enough to decide which one to keep)
Shimano SLX Cranks (24,36)
SLX front der.
XT Shadow rear der
XT rear cassette (11-34)
Avid Elixir CR 8" front and 7" rear
Peatty lock on grips
Gravity Dropper Turbo
Truvativ AKA stem
Rave Face Atlas FR bars
E13 DRS chainguide
Wellgo MG-1 pedals
Wheels are True Precision Stealth Hubs (yeah! Silent and instant engagement FTW)
Stans Flow rims, running tubeless
Maxxis Minion Tires 2.35 single ply
I'm sure I forgot some things, so far I have only ridden it a few time, can't wait to get some more trail time to dial in the suspension and get used to the geometry.
