Commencal go Carbon

We're not really much for press releases 'round here, but if you're going to be at Sea Otter in a couple of weeks, have a swing by the Commencal booth for a look at their new (for 2010) carbon fiber Meta 5 frame. One of our (few) complaints about the 2008 Meta 5.5 we tested was the 7.3lb frame weight. The Carbon Meta 5 is reported to weigh in about 5 3/4lb- a pretty big savings and will make 26-27lb builds an easily attainable reality. If the top tube were a bit lower and a supple adjustable-travel fork fitted, Commencal could have one heck of a fun 'big day out' bike on their hands...
