Review: Commencal's New Meta AM 29 Team
@mollow: Of course you can still carry a bottle on a ride if you really want to. Personally, I would never buy a bike that couldn't carry at least one bottle, no matter how good it of a bike it is. The fact that it's not a big deal for you is great - it sure makes bike choice easier - but it's a dealbreaker for me and some others.

@Caiokv: Sounds like it needs some love. Everything can creak at some point... I had a creaky stem/handlebar interface a few weeks ago, but that doesn't mean that the design is bad, only that I need to give it some love. My buddy's threaded bottom bracket sounds like nails on a chalkboard everytime he pedals hard, too.

@aljoburr: I might need four water bottle holders on it!

@aljoburr: No, I'd rather have a 53lb KHS Dominatrix with a blown Romic shock and a Monster T for a trail bike than a trail bike with an electric motor.

@adespotoskyli: Really? Me not being completely dehydrated while pedaling this fat beast to the top of a mountain is surely related to overall performance. Backpack? No thank you. It really just comes down to what's important to you, and being able to carry a bottle or two just isn't as important to you as it is to me.

@YouHadMeAtDrugs: I feel you on that, especially with plastic PressFit cups.

There are 3,045 words to that review and about 40 of them relate to water bottles, or roughly 1.3-percent.

Does it really ruin the bike? I mean, if it's such a great bike, would the lack of threads in the bottom bracket shell mean it's a no-go for you? Actual question, though, not sarcasm :) I only ask because after ten years as a full-time mechanic, and another ten doing this job, I've seen far more threaded shells make noise than PressFit shells, even on bikes I've had for multiple years. I'll grant you that PressFit is far less workshop-friendly when you need to do some maintenance, though.

At this rate, I'll only be able to moan when bikes can't carry three bottles.
