Don't worry, you should have your frame soon. I ordered a frame in December and didn't have any tracking but my frame had shipped a day or two after the order and arrived (surprise!) about a week after in eastern Canada. In my experience, Canpar is the worst carrier available in Canada, but even if my box arrived covered with oil, the frame was safe and sound. The Commencal Canada people will take care of you and will make it right in the end.

Beautiful looking bike.

The new Furious is the upgrade I've been looking for to replace my Voltage. I just have to source a 150mm wheelset, metric shock and crankset as I purposley built mine with high end parts to eventually transfer over to a new frame

Oh Yes! More pictures please! That thing looks good! Im happy I ordered large frame. It does not look too crazy long, what I was a bit afraid of.

I’ll post some more pics and a little unboxing video later today.
I was also worried that it would be a bit long, but I’m happy to say it feels good.
Coming from a knolly delirium xl with 488 reach, the 490 on the furious feels accurate, maybe a touch smaller when sitting in the travel.
I’m 187cm fwiw.

Threw on my Vibrocore 50mm rise bars and my Vaults.
Need to cut the seat post. The pics are as low at it safely goes without bottoming into the frame.

Weighs 37.7 pounds as pictured with the pedals and the tubes it came with. Size L

Looks really good! Why didn't you go for the XL size with your lenght? Do you think it would be to big?

490 reach is already big enough for me and my riding style. I would have even preferred it at 485mm.
The XL would have been way too big for me.

Its been said before, but.....They do feel smaller than their posted numbers .... at least in relation to some of the bikes I have ridden.


Ya got alot of stack height going on there. You gonna slam that stem?

The 490 reach on the furious feels true when I compare it to my delirium with 488.
As the furious squats more due to it having more travel, the reach number feels smaller than the static number.

I haven’t touched the headset yet. I’ll probably leave the bottom crown fairly low to keep the bb low and head angle steep, and adjust the top crown height as necessary for bar height and reach.
Commencal left a lot of steer tube which was nice.

Got my 2020 Furious frame this week. What position should i be running the flip chip in for a coil? I'm presuming responsive as a coil is already pretty linear.

I would agree.
Mine came in the sensitive setting. I tried switching the cups to the responsive position, but they wouldn't budge. Have you switched the cup positions yet? any tips for getting them out of the frame?
