Ollie’s new ride

Richard Allin | Friday, 19 July 2013

I've just replaced my Giant Trance with a Commencal Meta AM, to gain a bigger burlier ride for all mountain, Craigieburn’er type of stuff. I have chosen the Commencal for its enduro handling, frame stiffness, stand over and colour! Also ensuring all my previous XT running gear would swap across. I'm still waiting for a KS Lev 150mm to arrive and a new stem to finish the bike off. Hope you like.
