New Banshee Rune

If you know me personally you will know that for the last 10 months I have been with out a big bike. Its been horrible.

It died like many other bikes out in Morzine last summer, and with one thing and another its taken until now to get another one out on the tracks.

The bike in question is a 2011 Banshee Rune in team red, and I for one think its stunning.

I have always had DH bike, ridden mainly DH, but also ride a fair bit of wanted a bike that could do everything, but was better at going down hills than up them, and this bike ticked all the boxes.

Keith Scott and Banshee helped out a lot, as did the guys Lifer bmx, Dartmoor cycles, Madison and Silverfish, So thanks to all you guys for helping me put together such a sweet bike.

Anyway some photos of it:

Full build specs are:

Frame: 2011 Med Banshee Rune Team red

  1. was looking at that one myself this year, or the spitfire as well. You going to replace the dhx 5 air with a coil?

  2. I thought of but I also do a bit of XC on it, and the Air seems to be dealing with the DH pretty well... so No think ill stick with it.
