Mythic Rune

a quick post...

...this is a Mythic Rune we just built up today, from the remnants of a Chaparral and Morphine that belonged to one of the original Esher Shore trail crew, Scott

Scott is getting more into his mountain riding, and less into the freeride side of things, so I suggested a Rune as the perfect bike that will take some abuse whilst allowing him to up much easier

this is the first Rune i have built up at Esher (other Rune's have been ordered just as frames) so it was interesting to put it together and then have a quick ride to check out the ride

happy customer - Scott with his new Rune (3rd mythic he's owned

I'm very impressed with the pedalling, geometry, ride balance, its got a really nice feel which definitely says "mountain bike" in comparison to my Wildcard which feels more like an oversized BMX

weight wise, probably 35lb as he's running the Saint cranks and MTX wheels off his Chaparral

Scott's definitely got plans to swap some parts out for lighter / all mountain stuff over the next few months, and throw a Stan's No-Tubes setup in there too
