 Those bikes are mint! Oh and incase you missed it - they just got 3 gold medals in the World Cup at the weekend, piloted by Gee, Dan and Rach Atherton. They must be good!!

 The best commencal paint jobs are the ones on the 08 VIP frames but the 09 paint jobs are still awesome

 so far my prediction is right, were going back in time! love the vibrant colours. the absolut is looking sick, i like the green one Smile

keep up the great work!

 I don't like the colours but that's superficial and can easily be changed. For me function comes first, and on the new Supreme DH the Athertons were 10 seconds faster on Commencal's two and half minute test track in Andorra, and pretty much dominated the Andorran World Cup. I can't certainly argue with Max Commencal's track record so I don't see any reason why I shouldn't have one of these bikes. Ah, 2009. Another year of ever more debt!!

 Looking forward to seeing the prices. They have always made great bikes, but I need both my kidneys, so can't afford to sell one.

 Too bad none of the listed Commencal "dealers" in Toronto actually have any in stock to look at. Anyone know of any north american online retailers?

 why are they usung brakes that scrach the shit out of your rim instead of a disc
  • 0 0
 that bike is $599cdn retail, and for that kind of money if you put disc brakes on a bike it means somewhere else the money has to be saved. Commencal is 100% behind building the best frames possible and that means putting more money into frames at this price point.
