- Commencal Meta AM size/min insertion
I’ve been eyeing a Commencal Meta AM frame but am a little skeptical of the sizes. I’m 5’10 and though it’s in the very top of the medium spectrum, the numbers all look spot on compared to previous frames I’ve owned – except for the seat tube. 440mm is fine in itself but my concern with the Meta is that it’s a fair distance down to the top tube junction, which I assume is were I want my seat post to stretch, beefy brace or not?
Some photoshopping has lead me to believe it’s atleast 180mm from top of ST to TT junction which I just won’t be able to achieve if I want to be anywhere near efficient pedalling height, even with a 420mm Reverb. I guess that’s why the maximum inseam is stated as ~82cm…
So, do I just suck it up and look elsewhere (large will sadly be too long I’m quite sure)? Anyone running less insertion without issues? Is there an official minimum insertion number from Commencal somewhere that I haven’t been able to find?Posted 4 years ago
