    Default Snot an orange for once.....

    So, TBH, not really sure what to do with this. Felix grew out of his old 160mm bike, so I sold the frame and put him on a spitty, which he loves. This frame came up at a good price, so I couldn't help grabbing it to put his old parts on, with the plan of sharing it with him. He is very comfortable on a smaller Medium, despite being 11yo.
    Anyhoo, changes planned for this down the track. Hopefully 11sp, maybe 27.5. Who knows

    Frame
    - 2014 Banshee Rune, medium (26")
    Rear shock -CCBDA CS

    Front shock/fork - rct3 pike 160mm 27.5"
    Handlebars - Fatbar light 740mm, 15mm rise
    Headset - Cane Creek
    BB - Raceface signature DH
    Stem - Thomson 4x 50mm
    Grips - Lock on.
    Saddle - Charge, currently
    Seatpost - Thompson elite dropper currently.
    brakes - XT m875
    Rotors - Icetech 203/180

    Cranks - XT 785
    Guide - Fouriers top guide
    Chainring - 32t Fouriers NW
    Chain - XT 10sp
    Pedals - DMR Vault
    Rear derailleur - XT Middy with one-up cage currently.
    Rear shifter - ispec 10sp
    Cassette - XT 11-40 10sp currently (hope expander 40t)
    Hubs - Hope pro 2 Evo
    Rims - Stans flow ex 26"
    Tyres - Front Minion DHR, rear Minion SS. Tubeless.
    Total weight - 14.5kg with pedal. Not built to climb.

    All my bikes run virtually identical spec, from xc through to DH...I tried most things, and worked out what suits me.
    It plans to be there. Mad not to. You coming?

    If that's your backyard, I hate you so much.

    Nice bike though! Really need to update my bike to something with a tapered steerer and 27.5", at least. All these toys make me jealous.

    Is the first rule of mountainbiking at your house 'all rides must start with a huck to flat off the back deck'?

    Backyards are for townies. It's my sprawling bush block. Hate away.

    27.5 I'm not at all fussed about. It will happen. 26" still floats my boat.
    Yeah the tapered, 1.5" or 44mm head tube if unfortunately essential for the nice forks these days. I only run 2.5 forks to keep options open and gives a slightly slacker HA.

    I picked up this frame embarrassingly cheap. They're out there if you're lucky.
