Review: 2021 Commencal Supreme DH 29/27 - DH Bike Week
Maybe don’t pick between bikes using wheelbase as the first metric. There’s a lot of things that go into the distance between the two axles. Unless you’re worried about it fitting on the shuttle?! If the reach of the medium is a bit more to your liking then maybe that’s the one to go for. There’s also the ability to adjust the reach with an offset headset. The 56mm diameter head tube is a pretty standard size with there being a few options of reach adjust headset available.

Review: Canyon Sender vs Specialized Demo vs Cube Two15 vs Commencal Supreme - DH Bike Week
@Inclag: No. I gave them a good go in the beginning of the Demo’s test period, but eventually changed them. I ran the same Schwalbe tyres on all the bikes for the timed runs.

Yeah, it really is that. I think Commencal know they need a lot of spring in their setup from the kinematic, axle path and that their recommendations are informed quite heavily from their racers.

Still the same problems, no matter what bike it was on.

@DonLemont: I shit you not, I was so damn close to getting a friend to dress all in white and do the timed testing video shots. But, it's harder to organise than you think.

Yes, for the simple fact that with a 29" rear wheel in the mullet frame the BB will be sky high. It's already at 351mm!

@aug7hallak: Sorry that we didn't manage to do a video for each individual bike here. We have got an in-depth comparison video coming for the four bikes in a couple of days, though.

@gemma8788: Interesting for sure. I certainly depends on the individual bike, but I generally start off with 25% sag on a bike and go from there. But also not afraid to be going firmer, and so less sag, if the bike or terrain needs it. Thanks very much! There's a couple more articles coming too.

We were lucky enough to have 3D scanned all the DH bikes, so it made commenting on actually geo very easy and accurate.

Absolutely certain. I was initially surprised on the recommended sag range. We've got a shot of the setting sticker on the frame in the comparison video. Sorry, didn't manage to grab a still of it. Also, 25 - 30% of a 75mm stroke shock is 18.8 - 22.5mm.
