Rob Warner Shows Us Why Mountain Bikes are Amazing - Video
According to their site, it's about a pound (.5 kg) difference in weight. The longer travel fork on the AM is the main culprit for the weight difference. I have the Meta AM V4 right now, but if I had this option, I would've gotten the TR V4.2 for the versatility and the slightly lighter weight.

Rob Warner Shows Us Why Mountain Bikes are Amazing - Video
I have the Meta AM V4, which puts my bike square in the middle of the new 4.2 versions of the AM and TR. I think the bike rips, and the price point makes it a great value. If there's any downside to it, it's that EVERYONE AND THEIR FUCKING MOTHERS IN MY AREA IS GETTING THE SAME FUCKING BIKE!!! Get a Santa Cruz assholes!

KS' Wireless Electronic Dropper Post - Eurobike 2016
It's amazing that the company managed to convert the mechanism of the post to electronic and still able to maintain the same failure rate of about 80%. Good work KS.

Tracy Moseley's Trek Slash Bike Check - Trans-Rezia 2016
Sweet looking bike, and I have no doubt it's a performer, but I'm beginning to find the gold Kashima coating ugly. It makes the bike look like a "rapper's bike."

Rocky Mountain's 2017 Slayer - First Ride
This bike should come with an axe. Or a mace. A mace, yeah that's better. Aluminum head, carbon fiber handle. Make it happen Rocky Mountain!

Commencal's Monster Trail Bike: Meta AM V4-2
@RichardCunningham: Thanks! So far I haven't had heel rub in a while. I use flat pedals and I started placing my foot a bit more forward (ball of foot in front of axle which is apparently the proper way anyway) and it seems to have solved that problem.

Commencal's Monster Trail Bike: Meta AM V4-2
Anyone who owns the V4 knows about the wide rear triangle and the occasional heel rub on the seat/chainstay. I even had my hi-top shoe collar get snagged on the seatstay when I backpedaled to adjust my foot placement (thought my foot got caught by the spokes and scared the shite out of me). So while Commencal addressed the issue of the seat angle and the tight fit of the shock on the top tube tunnel, I wonder if they fixed the seat/chainstay problem. But it's a nice looking bike for sure :)
