Wow, talk about a blatant marketing scam! Get a new bike when your old one isn't fun anymore, if that ever happens!

I too have yet to see it on the WC circuit, but many of the Rampage riders were skipping chainguides entirely. This one at least has a top guide still.

Technically no- this bike uses their proprietary bars, stem, wheels, and tires as well so they do have stuff that other companies don't have "exact" access to. If anything there are more "special" parts on this specific rig but you could for sure find comparable or lighter parts...more

`gotcha. I always find these "look at this light bike!" things really funny when it comes from a bike company. The only part that makes this bike different than what any weenie can build is the frame and shock. So lets compare weights of frame + shock: then you know what is the...more

Some could argue that riding a bicycle at up to 40mph through woods is dumb all around.
But you still do it

I've always wondered what would it be like if Ryan Leech grew up in the ghetto... now I know. That buswalk was wild, haha.

I can't disagree, but we should be excited that Snowbird is seeing the value in mountain biking, and get excited that this could lead to bigger things from them. The terrain that is available there could lead to incredible things, so let's speak up and encourage them to not give up and help...more

Bummer, sounds like it's another increasingly typical "Flow" trail Fail. So much work goes into them and 95% of the time they suck. What ever happened to making singletrack???

Makes sense now, I didn't realize they lumped it in the Enduro category. Since they offer the Meta SX and AM, I assumed they would have separated the hip hop from their enduro roster.

As the reviewer stated: "it excels on fast, flowy, smooth trails - much like those you'd expect a slalom bike to excel on." I would have assumed a bike like this would be tested on such trails.

I would love to read a review on flow jump trails, slope style, bike park, 4x tracks..... Commencal has other meta models much better suited to trail riding. It's great to know the hip hop can be an ok trail bike when needed, but let's hear about how it does in the environments where it would separate itself from the crowd. This is a niche bike, not a trail bike.
