Commencal Supreme SX - Review
You mean lower portion? Yeah, this could be remedied by a chainguide. I wonder how much chain drag this would induce - a pulley + chainguide. But if suspension is smooth,then there is really no need for chainguide, except use of an oval chainring.

Commencal Supreme SX - Review
Ok, I understand. Looks great, pitty you cannot buy this yet. Works components does ZS56 reach adjust but only for non-tapered forks, so not really for this bike. But, now I wonder, this reach adjust will probably be only for non-tapered forks. This works for DH, but not for supreme SX, as no one makes non-tapered single crown forks now ...

@shmity: This mean that they have a ZS56 cups top and down, why do they mention IS41? Or they have ZS56 cups which take IS41 bearings? But this is misleading, IS means no cup, just bearing into the frame.

@Robbyc78: What size do you own, an L? How does it fit for 5'11? I wonder since I am the same height.

Commencal Supreme SX - Review
@Eduardocortellesi: I think that such a frame will always weight a bit more than a traditional one. Look at those welds, it must be massive to be rigid enough. Anyway, it may be too much for EWS for Barelli, but it does not mean that it would be too much for an ordinary human. EWS is all about speed and endurance. But for typical person this does not matter that much. For sure such a bike would be very comfortable to ride on descends if you do not need high pace on flatter sections. I would love to try this bike. I am sure that my next bike will be this or the new Nomad. I do not get the talking about that a bike is too much for something. Sure, if you have very easy, flat trails with no obstacles than maybe. But for Finale or any proper "enduro" trail it will be much more comfortable to ride.

@plyawn: shimano rear hub for 12mm axle requires a 15mm key ;) I would rather have 2x12 ;)

Why going to 160 would make it weight noticeably less? I think that this was Commencal's reasoning for this bike, why putting less travel in an equally heavy bike?

I am waiting for this review like a child for christmas ;) I know that this bike is a niche within niche, and that there are many more reasonable bikes out there, but somehow I cannot resist.
