PRESS RELEASE: Commencal Bicycles
For 2019, the META AM has been equipped with 29'' wheels. Many things have evolved on the frame in order for us to offer the best enduro 29er. We have used all the experience we gained when we made the SUPREME DH 29 in order to design a bike that is as reliable as it is dynamic.
Largely revised, the META AM 29 with its big wheels brings more serenity. There is new geometry alongside 160mm of travel. The META AM 29 has already proven itself in the hands of Cécile Ravanel. Her numerous victories holding these handlebars are a good indication!
Now we have the "SIGNATURE BRUSHED" version. Our brushed aluminium finish highlights the beauty and reliability of an aluminium frame, a true staple of our brand since the beginning.

All else equal, sure, I'll take the lighter bike, but not all else is equal.
Does anyone know if they have similar sales like YT (10% off) - I am looking to pull the trigger but a bit hesistant as I am not too close to bike brand schedules
After all this I'm expecting from Commencal one badass offer for the new daddy's bike
That being said, if you are a tall guy (I'm 6-4), this isn't exactly the best I'd guess. The reach is short at 480mm and more importantly the actual seattube angle is extremely slack. You'll be in auto-wheeling when climbing like the Following or Hightower LT. Not cool and a legit flaw for us.
Ripmo is a sick option as is the new Jeffsy 29 (I've ridden Ripmo but not new Jeffsy). Obviously the new Yetis would be ample fitted as well in XL. I think their reach is like 505 or so with steep STA. All benefits a tall guy.
