For sale is my faithful 2006 Commencal Meta 5.2.
Bought in September 2006 from Edinburgh Bike at a cost of £1850. She's in good used condition showing cosmetic wear but no dents or cracks. The worst areas are scrapes on the fork lowers, heel rub and chain slap on the stays and a rubbed patch on the down tube from being on a car rack. I have tried to show these areas up in the photos. Many of the bolt heads are rusty, not a big deal but thought I'd best mention it!
The shocks were serviced by Mojo in March 2009. All the bearings in the swing arm were replaced professionally at the same time. The bike was used until November 09 when I purchased a new bike. It has sat unused since.
Plenty of life left in drivetrain and tyres. Brakes are nice and sharp, not needing bleeding.
