Hi Raident30,

Try asking in Commencal Philippines. I have seen meta am 4.2 there with non boost cranks, not sure about the size of the chainring though.

I'm running a non-boost crank with a 30T-chainring on my meta 4.2 and it's working pretty well. i would say an 32T would also be no problem:

Love the look of the Meta v.2. Just worried the seat tube is too high and will get in the way on steep stuff / big jumps.

I'm 5'10" and would need a large frame. Anyone had any similar issues??


I'm also 5'10" and had the same worries but it works without any problems by now.

Hi grafzahl, how about the clearance of the crankarms to chainstay and seatstay. Heard from 4.2 users their foot hitting the stays.

I am thinking if my saint cranksets will fit the v4.2.

Thanks

Hi Hoyas,
i would say the distance to the chainstay is normal, from my point of view absolutely harmless.
The seatstays are actually a bit wider than other frames I had ridden before.
I have taped the seatstays and so far I had no problems with.

Damn so hot !
Are these the 35W Hope ?

Nope, don't think I need rims that wide. Coming from 19mm internal I thought the 23mm inner of those would be fine, and they are, might go wider in the future when it's time to replace the rims but I don't recon I will go all the way to 35. Probably look for something that's 28-30 inner.

Just bought a AM 4.2 Essential. HUGE upgrade for me, cant wait to ride it. Had ace reviews everywhere.
Looking forward to asking you guys lots of questions as and when I need to!!

Hopefully get delivered this week, if not early next. Taking it to my local bike shop to give it the once over before I take it out, as I read that the reverb needs bleeding. Anything else I should be aware of before? I'm buying from Chain Reaction by the way. Not sure how well they put their bikes together.

You won't need to visit your LBS unless you are not able to bolt on wheels and bars.
The bike is good to be ridden when you got it ;-)
