Selling my much loved Commencal Meta AM V4 Purple as I simply don't get the time to ride it due to having a young family. I purchased the bike direct from Commencal and have owned it for a couple of years The "Purple" model was a special edition which features a few trick components over the lower models – like the Monarch Plus Debonnair RC3 with piggyback reservoir and Spank Oozy rims, bar and stem. It's a size large. It has a few marks from general trail riding, but nothing at all unexpected. I've probably ridden it less than 20 times and not living near any big mountains it's a bit of a waste. Frame: Meta AM 650b, travel 150mm, 6066 triple butted hydroformed, integrated post mount, top tube channel, integrated housing Shock: RockShox Monarch Plus Debonnair RC3, 200 x 57mm, 3 positions Lock/Platform/Open Fork: RockShox Pike RC, 650b, Solo Air, travel 160mm, 15mm tapered Headset: Semi integrated, tapered ZS44/56, 1.5 crown race, sealed bearing, alloy cups Stem: Spank Oozy Trail, 50mm, O° rise, Ø31.8mm, high polish black, custom purple artwork Bar: Spank Oozy Trail, 760mm, 30mm rise, high polish black, custom purple artwork Grips: Commencal lock on, Ø32mm, soft compound Brakes: SRAM Guide R 200mm/180mm, with matchmaker Shifters: SRAM GX 1x11 spd Rear Mech: SRAM GX 1x11 spd Bottom Bracket: E13 TRS BB92 double sealed bearings Crankset: E13 TRS Single, ExaLite Alu with APS - Black, direct guide ring M N/W 32T Chain: KMC X11L 11 spd Cassette: SRAM XG1150 10-42t Rims: Spank Oozy trail 295, high polish black, tubeless ready, custom purple artwork Hub: Ride Alpha 32h, sealed bearing light version Spokes Stainless steel 1.8mm black, thread lock system Tyres: Maxxis Minion DHR II 2.3 front and rear.

Bex Baraona's EWS Fundraising Raffle
She makes a great point about factory team supports and the difference between a lifestyle athlete and a competitive athlete. Bex is knocking on the door of the podium as a privateer. Compared with say Hannah Barnes, backed by Specialized, but has EWS results at the other end of the field. Good luck for 2017!

I've owned this bike for the last two years, and it's been absolute brilliant. It's been the perfect trail bike for me – strong, pedals well and is simply great fun. I built the bike up from a frame-only purchase, so the spec was chosen by me and is full Shimano SLX. Here are some reviews of the Bandit from launch: http://www.bikeradar.com/mtb/gear/category/bikes/mountain-bikes/product/review-transition-bandit-2-12-46429/ http://www.pinkbike.com/news/Transition-Bandit-26-Tested-2012.html [b]Full spec:[/b] Frame: 2013 Transition Bandit 26, lemon-lime, large, 142x12 rear axle, 130mm travel Fork: Fox 32 Float 150mm FIT, 15mm axle, tapered steerer, black (serviced by Mojo July 2015) Headset: Hope pick 'n' mix Shock: Fox CTD Kashima Shifters: Shimano SLX M670, 2x10 Front mech: Shimano SLX M676 Direct Mount Rear mech: Shimano SLX M675 Shadow+, medium cage Crankset: Shimano SLX M675, 175mm, 38/24 Cassette: Shimano SLX HG81, 11-32 Chain: KMC 10 speed Brakes: Shimano SLX M675 Discs: Shimano SLX RT66, 180mm/160mm Pads: Shimano M985 with cooling fins Wheelset: Stans Flow EX on Hope Pro II Evo hubs, black Tyres: Schwalbe Hans Dampf, trailstar/pacestar, tubless Seatpost: RockShox Reverb 125mm Saddle: Madison Flux, black Stem: Race Face Evolve AM 50mm, black Bars: Funn Fatboy 750mm, black Grips: Specialized lock-on, black The bike has been helitaped from new. It's a bike that has been used, but is still in overall good condition. [b]Bad points:[/b] There's a small mark on the fork stanchion, it's at the very top mind, doesn't effect the fork performance and doesn't cause any oil issues. The forks were serviced by Mojo recently and given the all clear. I'll attempt to get some more pics uploaded.
