Commencal opinion and question...
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...
