Banshee Spitfire question

Has anyone run the Spitfire with the 150mm x 12mm dropouts? How messed up was the chainline? I'll be running 1X9 probably.

I'm sure they're mostly available for the Rune, but I've got a DH wheelset that's lighter than most AM wheels and it would be nice to have one wheel/hub size for my DH and AM bikes (not to mention cheaper).

i'd head over to the banshee forum on mtbr, there's a looooong spitfire thread going, someone should be able to help you out

It runs without any issues at all. I ran mine in 150mm for months without missing a gear or dropping a chain.
