    They get ok reviews in the UK mags. Never ridden one though so can't be any more help than that.

    No. AC won about a dozen riding a Sunn or Cannondale. Commencal is the former owner of Sunn. I think in this case, Chausson probably could have won riding a bike from Walmart.

    Mountain Bike Rider has 2 tests in its archive, but they aren't free.

    I seem to remember the combi getting a good review, somethink like 9/10.

    This months MBR has the Supreme FR6.10, it gets 7/10, its let down by specification apparently. If its on the wish list I'll take a piccy of the article and mail it to u if you want.

    I have had a quick look through a few mags here at home, I'll check at work too (more for others benefit hehe...never get 5 minutes to read em at work hehe).

    They're good bikes. You get some pretty good stuff for your money.
