Anyone have experience running a TRP or similar brake on the 2021 model? This is about as good as I can get the line routing without having it touch the rotor

You just need a zip tie and can run it on the inside of the rear triangle. I’ll snap a pic of mine. Just put the DHR - evos on it

I ran mine inside and it is close to the rotor but has never touched it. Have about 3 months on my bike and hasn’t been an issue. I thought about the zip tie but don’t see that I need it.
I am running codes though and my banjo bolt is on opposite side as yours. I see your issue. You might have have to run a zip tie in that case.

I’ve since flipped it to the inside. No zip tie technically needed but I’ll put one on for peace of mind.

Chucked the 38's from my ebike onto the big meta, I thought the purple and orange would look whack but works sort of well. Gone up in spring rate as I've eaten too much over Christmas lol.

I've put on a spring 50lbs too light to make sure that I lose weight after xmas. Keep bottoming out until I'm thinner!

Looks awesome! Can't wait for my high polish TR to ship. Hopefully April remains as the actual ship date for the next production run of frames.

Hi everyone, I don´t know if someone has asked this before so if that is the case, I apologize.

I´m writing from Chile, i just received my new Meta AM 29 Ohlins Edition, size Small, it has a 343lbs spring on it, which I think is to soft.
I´m a experienced rider, I always race at the national championship and I have had the fortune to participate in two EWS events, so definitely 343lbs sound to soft. I weight 73 kg (160lbs) without gear, so with riding gear I think it would be something around 76-77kg (170lbs).

I wanted to know if someone in here has received the same bike and has already tried it, what spring rates are you guys using?

Best regards!

Sebastián

Might ba a little biased, but I think the new Metas are probably the nicest looking enduro bikes out this year....

Has anyone run a headset to slacken a 2020 Meta to a head angle of 64 or 64.5 degrees? What was the result?

I've also been wondering the same thing. I think the previous Commencal enduro team was also running -1 degree headsets.

The XL is 66 degrees so 1.5 - 2 degrees may be perfect if you going down the steeper options.
