Commencal SuperNormal - a mountain bike.

It's a bike. It's steep, it's short, but it fits. It's not supposed to be a shred sled.
It's a bike. It's steep, it's short, but it fits. It's not supposed to be a shred sled. I ride it where I like. Unless it's double black. Then I ride my other bike. Old transfer lever mounted to a cut down avid brake adapter mounted under the nose of the seat. I wanted to keep the controls simple and not be dropping all the time, but not be annoyed by having to use a QR. This works well. Weird dropouts put the brake on the chainstay and make the seat tube look slightly less long than it actually is M8100 shifter on M785 I-spec mount Rigid was the answer for this thing. It's great fun, more so than with its old 32, and I can still ride down some pretty gnarly stuff on it.
