new bike, AM wagon wheel content. commencal meta AM2 29
After reading Doug basque’s reports I’ve been a yes/no, on/off on getting line for a while.
So, sealed the sale of Spearfish and pulled the pin on it. Only downside is, the shops are closed!
I’m tempted to collect so I can use on Sunday instead of waiting for delivery!
Ordered and arriving asap!

A nice review of the 650B version to wet the appetite… the bike rather than the trail comes alive on this occasion.Posted 4 years agoexcitable1Member
How obviously bloody single is mssansserif 😯 ?!!!
Black leather sofa, wide screen TV, Xbox Rock Band, 3 guitars, trainers left by the sofa and a new bike in the lounge. Clearly no woman nagging in the background there.

Well the Meta AM29 has landed, been built and is ready for testing almost. Just need to do a bit of heli taping on it first. Although not sure where as with internal cabling there’s no rubbing of course.
first impressions are it’s a bit RAAAARRRRRRRRRHHHH. It feels and seems massively robust and burly compared to the Spearfish… it’s built like the proverbial tank.
the internal routing is lovely… including the extra bit for the dropper seatpost on the headstock and seatube.. nice touch that. The shockguard looks a bit flimsy, it’s a small piece of Neoprene basically over the shock at the rear, but you never know, it may be brilliant.
Bars are 730mm, but seem a lot wider, making the general size of the thing seem even greater.
Added a few PSI into both the front and rear shocks, seem how that is and go from there. Not really played with the CTD function yet, but doesn’t seem to fully lock the forks on C.

Mmmmm, nice. Out of curiosity, for the internal routing, are the holes sealed up (or totally filled with cable)? Pet hate of mine when frames fill with crap!
Most have rubber seals to keep it all in place, the one for dropper doesn’t, neither does the one where the brake cable comes out of the swingarm.Posted 4 years agoScamperMember
Very nice. Have a 2013 26 AM waiting to be built up after finally working out what BB and Headset is required. Mine came with 3 of those chain stay protectors but I can’t work out where the smallest goes?
In terms of weight I’m getting my frame at a whopping 8.7lbs 😯Posted 4 years ago
