 This bike does everything very well. I like that the geo is adjustable and if I want to I can convert to 650b with some upgrades. I've played with the bike geo settings via rear drop out flip chips and appreciate the flexibility to change my mind with a ten minute process if I want. It pedals up steep techy climbs very well without being the lightest out there. It helps to have a travel adjust fork. I've never been one to watch weight too closely and when you get to where you're going i.e. The top of a descent, it really does ride like a DH bike. It doesn't hold me back. I'd say it wouldn't be the right bike for rolling terrain but it's exceptional for enduro style riding. Go for the DBair option at $2200 for a frame it's below average for comparable designs. No regrets and plan on keeping it for a long time.

Banshee 2013 Rune (MSRP $0) — For the Rune, I wanted the stiffness of a freeride bike but without the weight, as well as the pedaling efficiency of an XC bike. By carefully designing the frame both in terms of structural integrity and rigidity, and carefully planning the axle path, anti-squat and leverage ratio, I have created the bike that I had in my mind. If I had only one bike, it would be a Rune. I am happy riding this bike for 40 mile all day epics, as well as shredding down DH courses boosting jumps and railing berms.
