The bikes I looked at had good brakes for the money but the transmission and forks were not as good as you'd get on a Specialized at the same price. So why would you want a Commencal over say a Specialized?mickle said:Yes. Quite good.
Absolutely. The only problem is that the shop that stocks them has hardly any bikes in stock and doesn't have the bike I'm interested! I phoned them today and they said they could get my size from another bike then order one in for me, but that's no use to me. I wouldn't buy a bike unless I'd tried the actually bike I wanted in my size. It's a pity, they look interesting.RedBike said:There's no substitute for actually trying them.
Have you ridden them? I saw Commencal and Genesis in a similar bracket, they seem to be coming from the same place as far as design philosophy. In the price bracket I'm looking at the Genesis bikes seem to offer better value. That and the fact that there are far more Genesis (Ridgback) dealers swung me towards Genesis.martylaa said:I'm going for the commencal tomorrow.
