Good day everyone!

I'm plannig to convert my actual Meta v4.2 TR into the All Mountain version, in short go from 130 mm rear suspension to 160 mm. I'm very very happy with the bike and its parts, just thinking I need more travel as I'm getting more aggresive, and don't want to spend money on a new bike. Cool

I don't know anyone with the v4.2 am version to check the measures, but I've checked the commencal tech webpage, and seems that every piece, despite the shock and fork are exactly the same between versions. Also the geometrie numbers not affected by the fork length are the same.

So for my seems extrange but could be possilble than the only difference is the shock, going from a 210x50 to a 230x60?

I also made a 'Paint' comparison, and the frame 'looks' the same, just having the seatstays a little bit farther back (green line in the picture). The yellow and blue lines centers the bottom bracket and shock link on the top tube on both images (extracted from commencal tech).

Thank you so much in advance for helping me with this! Wink
