Nice one Evan. I didn't know you could weld. Josh Walters here. We used to know each other back when I lived in Santa Cruz. I've made four of my own., two hardtails and two suspension bikes.

Thanks Josh! I remember you from Post Office days...I don't trust my welding skills enough yet so I actually had John Caletti of Caletti Cycles do the tig welding for me.

My Rune V2 is 33lbs (15000g). Carbon hoops and bar. My guess this one is pushing 35lbs.

Most of the builds on here are boring Yetis with AXS and Code RSCS. Yours is different and I like it. You have taste.
