i have seen the Premiere Disc here in paris for a good price and at my size..it is admittedly cheaper than the competition such as specialized
i'm a noob can someone look at the specs and tell me if they're decent?

Don't know about quality, but I know they keep showing up on chainlove.com for cheap.
I'd say it's a pretty fair brand - - seeing as how the Supreme DH is arguably one of the most talked-about bikes in the gravity world and the World Cup team is built around the Atherton siblings.
Note: Commencal was started by Max Commencal - - split off from Sunn out of the ashes of the famed Sunn-Chippie team of Nico, Cedric and Ann Caro.
Over here in england I've heard nothing but good things about them. Everyone says in general they are very fun bikes.

I ride a Commencal Meta 5.5 and I absolutely love it. Endless rear travel and it even climbs well.

I've been riding a Commencal Combi S ( and 8 other bikes, now a lot less ) primarily for the last 2 years. Although the rocker assembly disintegrated ( the 2009 version was made of what appeared to be cast pot metal ). After finding someone in Canada who had any idea of what I needed to replace, he sold me a Meta 5.5/6 rocker that was so improved it looked like an engineering marvel.
I love the Combi S, even tho Commencal parts/service in the US is essentiall non existant.
With all that being said, just a few days ago I acquired a Meta 5.5 (VIP,I think) alloy frame and am slowly building it up. If anyone has already done a build up, and liked what they did ( or not!) I'd like to know what they used, and what sizes, etc...

Very nice looking bike. But if you're using that cable lock to secure it, your bike's going to get stolen.
