    Default Yep, another rune...

    So i am a bit of a banshee fan boi, i had been riding a 2014 rune v2 but felt that it was a touch too small. I always had the dropper at maximum extension and longed to slam it to the collar. I was looking a a new frame in a larger size and came very close to purchasing a secondhand nomad 3. In a moment of weakness i thought i would shoot some emails off for pricing on a rune frame without shock, stu @ defcon gave me an excellent price so i ended up pulling the trigger on the new rune (i am a sucker for both banshee frames and warranty). Ended up going down the boost route as i wanted something somewhat future proof. Really wanted a boost diamond fork but got a deal I couldn't turn down on the cane creek helm fork.

    I sold some bits off my old rig and bough some new boost bits and a longer dropper, all up it cost me about $900 to change from what i was running to this new beast.

    Haven't had a chance to ride it as i have been flat out at work but i hope it is a better fit for me.

    Here's what i ended up with


    Banshee rune 2018 xl (boost dropouts)
    DVO jade shock
    Cane creek helm fork (170mm)
    Hope tech 35w wheels (boost)
    Hope floating rotors (203mm)
    Hope tech v4 brakes
    Hope AM stem (35mm)
    Raceface SixC handlebars (35mm)
    Shimano m8000 XT cassette, chain, derailleur, cranks, bottom bracket
    One up narrow wide 32t chain ring
    KS Lev integra w/ southpaw (150mm)
    Fizik tundra 2 saddle

    Jade, helm, V4's, that's a baller of a build!

    Curious as to a 2018 vs a V2 ride report, I miss my Rune, awesome frames.

    Edit: whats the shock size, 216x63 as the V2's or has it gone to another standard :/ banshee website only has 2017's on there.

    Agree completely, there is no evidence!

    It is a 2017 I'm pretty sure. If 2018, there are no changes as the 2017 was the new incarnation.
