 They were available for preorder for over three months. All it took was commitment and a bit of patience and anyone could have had one by now. I ordered my frame in early October and received it in early November. Coming off of a Sight C1 and various other carbon bikes, I am nothing but impressed with the quality and finish on this bike. The weight increase was less than a pound and the way it rides is just the icing on top. It's the perfect hard-charger all mountain bike. I rank it a touch above the Sight for my size and riding style.

 @tebb: Thanks! I highly recommend this bike. It's even more beautiful in person, and the geo/kinematics combo is so perfectly balanced.

 @funkzander: I'm 190cm, 104kg. My Sight C1 was 15.37kg (33.9lb), and the Meta is 15.74kg (34.7lb), so the weight is definitely there but on par with other comparable bikes. Body position on the bike is VERY good and very similar to the Sight. It rides lighter than it is and climbing traction is immense. The seat tube angle really puts your weight in a centered/forward bias for a comfortable climbing position that you can maintain for a long period of time while grinding. I've owned short travel and more xc oriented bikes, so I know what good climbers feel like. Let's say an XC machine is a 10/10 and a DH sled is a 1/10, most hard-core enduro bikes would fall in the 5/10 range. I would rate the overall climbing performance of both the Meta TR and the Sight at a 6.5/10. They both get the climbing job done very well and without excessive energy loss, but they are really dialed for the descent.

 Commencal look like great bikes, I just wish I could ride one before I bought it, and stock, do they keep any stock, everything seems back ordered or out of stock for 2021 already, good problem for them for sure

 Ok serious question. Is he locking up his back tire (brakes) or really just ripping it so hard that he's drifting about?

 The most impressive thing is that he rode and filmed that at the same time.

 @rideonjon: My mistake. Thought he was on the frame-only option in the raw aluminum.
