Commencal Max Max - A Season in Review Commencal Max Max - A Season in Review
As some of you may know over the past season I have been riding, writing, and learning about the Commencal Max Max. The Max Max originally started off as a basic $600 hardtail. Fully rigid, dual v-brakes, and flimsy wheels is what we started with. Over the past season I have slowly been adding parts, removing parts, and now here is the end result of my own comfortable, clean, fun street bike.

I would have never thought 599$ in the biking world would get a complete bike that was worthy of being ridden hard. Commencal has proven my theory wrong with their marketing of the Max Max. The Max Max has been one of the most exciting bikes I've rode in a while, and it's definitely unique. Start with an Aluminum frame, stir in some rigid forks, a pair of v-brakes, and a set of wheels and you've got yourself the Max Max, or better known as "my best investment all year".

The Little Bike that Can - Max Max by Commencal The Little Bike that Can - Max Max by Commencal
In 2000 a small French company was started, brandishing the name Commencal. Since that time they have been producing high quality bicycles, that appeal to all audiences. The Max Max hardtail was created as an affordable bike, but with a high quality frame. Created with the idea in mind that riders would purchase the bike at a young level, and slowly build it up over time to a bike of a higher caliber. The Max Max frame uses a very comfortable frame design, matched with good entry level parts. What's this mean to the rider? A sick frame, for an even sicker price. What else could you ask for?

Check out the Max Max.

Commencal Meta 5.5 Numero 3 Review Commencal Meta 5.5 Numero 3 Review
Max Commencal has god-like status on the alpine mountain bike trails in France, and understandably so. A large percentage of people riding the steep and technical tracks around the French Alps have been doing so for years aboard bikes bearing the Commencal name written in distinctly funky fonts. One of the early riders piloting Max Commencal’s bikes was Cedric Gracia, who would eventually become one of the greatest downhill and freeriders of our time. At the time, however, both he and the Commencal brand were up and comers. Eventually Gracia was picked up by Cannondale, where he would quickly become a living legend on two wheels for his fearless riding and partying lifestyle. But much to many people’s surprise, Gracia went back to his roots in 2006 and is once again riding for his old friend Max Commencal.

Atherton Bros turn out for the first time on their Commencal rides. Atherton Bros turn out for the first time on their Commencal rides.
Global warming is really playing havoc with our weather system, only 2 weeks ago there was no snow in the French Alps and the Tignes Airwaves event looked unlikely to be going ahead. Luckily a dump of snow just after New Year changed the organiser's minds, so Dan, Gee and two brand new sparkling Commencals jumped on a plane and turned up at the resort to find all lifts running and plenty of snow on the ground.

It's official - Cedric joins Commencal It's official - Cedric joins Commencal
Since Interbike rumors had been going around that Cedric was leaving Cannondale to join the Commencal Team. Back in December I saw a press release on a French Web site stating that the move was official, but having not received any official press release from Commençal I decided to wait. Well this morning I found this sitting in my inbox - guess it's a done deal! I would like to wish Cedric the best of luck with his new team.
