- Anyone know their Commencals?
There have been 3 versions of the Meta 5. The original had a box section rear swingarm and gusseted main frame. In 2008 commencal revised the swingarm to a monocoque version similar to yours. Then in 2010, the whole bike was redesigned minus gussets and production moved to a new factory, after a dodgy 2009 batch of large/x large frames which were prone to cracking at the top/seat tube junction. My Large 2010 frame is still going strong after 3 years of regular use, great bike!Posted 4 years ago
I bought this from Commencal. Its all standard (decal/paint) but the decals are unique and it has a decal stating its AL SL tubing. A cancelled final incarnation of the meta5? Or simply a frame/build done for a customer who cancelled?
I’ve also emailed Commencal:
One thing to note. My swing arm differs from another stw’er- its surface is box sectioned, his is smooth.Posted 4 years agoiain1775Subscriber
It’s just a standard (2012 I think) frameset HoraPosted 4 years ago
Decals are different because it was a frameset only (VIP series as they used to call them) rather than a complete build
They have done similar standard / VIP decals / colour schemes since at least 2008 on metas and supremes
