Huh that’s pretty cool that they made that change, glory of aluminum is that you can make mid-year changes like that.

I’m selling my large 2018 and have been suggesting that guys 5’9-6’0 are probably the ideal height for the large, Commencal bikes have always felt about 1/2”-1” short to me and I’m 6’1

Yes, but the fact they didn’t mention it, really turns me off. It somehow feels shady, even though it is an improvement. IDK, maybe I’m just nutz

Hi guys, I'm in need of a new FR/park bike and Furious seems to be pretty much everything I need from my bike. There is however one big question: I like my bikes short, nimble and playful, which is why I've been wondering whether it would be possible to fit Furious with 26" wheels (and 26" Boxxer).

I know that BB will be low, but is it going to be too close to the ground? What else should I take into consideration? I have very nice (and relatively new) 26" wheels and 26" Boxxer, and updating just the frame instead of basically the whole bike would be so much cheaper.

Thanks!

Hi ! i don't think it would be a problem to put some 26" wheels if :
-suspensions set hard
-short/medim size (the bike is quite long)

Also don't forget that you will loose the warranty, on a bike that easely cracks (front for the 2017 and early-2018 models and chainstay tube). The Furious is very playful even if it's long and 27.5", maybe you should try one before ?

This is new for me, i haven't heard about commencal frames cracking since the v3 launched.
How have you heard about it? Happened to your own bike?
I thought all commencal frames these days were so over built that they shouldn't break.
This reminds me of an interview with Max Commencal where he said that not a single Meta AM had cracked(v3 i think). I wonder if that was a lie.

many of them in my local area. This is why they did a new welding on the late-2018 / 2019 frames (between the top tube and diagonal tube). I personnaly ride an old version and there's no sign of crack after a year.

Thanks for the info, I didn't know about the problems with 17/18 frames. Indeed, it seems that the 2019 version has been changed a little bit compared to earlier years, both in terms of longer reach and some new weldings.

Is it really so that using a different wheel size results in one losing warranty?

Maybe if you tell them, but they don't need to know that, do they?

But seriously, it shouldn't. As the geometry is unchanged there will not be higher stress on the frame. It will just sit lower.

Cricri68: Thanks for the info!

Thanks Cricri68 for the hint on cracks in 2017 and early 2018 models. I checked my 2017 large size frame and found a cracks under top tube and top of lower tube close to junction point to headtube. Got that thing solved with commencal customer service within few hours and im getting a same old geo front triangle with stronger junction/welding on top tube from warranty. Very happy with customer service.
