I have had just over 2 weeks on the Rune so I thought it was time to share my experiences with you. The frame was ordered on the basis of the geometry, comments on the website and other reviews (maybe not the best way) so it was always going to be a risk.
Well I can honestly say after the ride today; it has all paid off. Last week was at Stainburn-a trail neither I nor the bike had been to before so it was all learning. Today was all familiar stuff; so it was a straightforward comparison (albeit with a Mongoose Teocali; my last bike)
Here goes; the Rune climbs everything the Teocali would-except I am now on flat pedals and 2.35 tyres! Going down there is no comparison-flick the pro pedal off the shock and this thing plain flies. I have now used it on pretty much everything;
So up to now it’s all good and I will give an update once the fork has been swapped out. In the meantime all I can say is that if you are in the market for a do it all bike then this really does fit the bill. Thanks Keith and Jay, keep it up-excellent product.'
