    yes myself and 3 other teamates rode this bike for the last couple seasons

    first off what makes the bike unique is the frame
    1. each frame's tubing is spec'd per size, thereby giving maximum stiffness and comfort for the intended rider
    2. the rear CNC monostay giving it a cantilever like feel, simply put it gives a little love in the back to keep it from being terribly harsh, however the monostay still gives it magnificent lateral stiffness when torquing up hills or sprints

    have any more questions please shoot away or email me

    Thank you sirbikealot... do you agree with the Commencal recommended size table?
    http://www.commencal.com/bike/sizes/index_en.htm
    One of my riders just had enough with the S Works long top tube- Also his inseam is kinda short compared to his height. An inch shorter, 29" instead of 30". I was aiming for 2008 but if I can assamble the team for next season, I'll go for it.

    Do either of you guys know what the weight of the XL Flame frame is? I can't seem to find it anywhere. The Commencal website says 1.59 kg, but does not specify what size frame this is for.
    Thanks,
