Commencal Meta 6 Build
#1
2009 Commencal Meta 6 160mm travel front and rear.

The camera doesnt capture the green well, in real life its a brighter shiney green.

Frame

Frame wrapped up in cardboard ready to drill out the gear cable stops so i can run a full outer, dont worry this is the 3rd time ive done it to a commencal frame. Its a bit scary drilling a brand new frame out.

Is that the same green as Mark's old Meta?  Looks a cracking build.  I have to ask - have you kept the Rampage from Scotland??  I don't need to ask if you have replaced the inner tube though Wink  Big Grin

Very nice. How are you finding the Joplin reliability wise or is it new? I have a gravity dropper that came with my old 5 Spot which I used on that and the Inbred. I used it a lot on the Turner just dropping it an inch as I was so perched on top of the bike. I was going to get one for the Zesty but as it has the room I needed, I dont have the need to drop the post unless im playing on downhill bits etc so I manually lower it but if I find some hidden money I might still consider one. I seem to recall Pure are bringing out an updated one of theirs which is a bit heavier but I believe doesnt have the slop that Joplins suffer from if not really looked after and kept clean.

That looks fooking gorgeous!! looks way better than the standard builds with white wheels (don't ever get white wheels, they look crap) Yes Ade i would really like a Joplin, but i am mostly jelouse of the 36's at the moment... I want some soo much, but now i have some money i can't find any >Sad
