    Commencal Meta 5.2 Lateral Stiffness

    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyones had any issue with the lateral stiffness of the Commencal Meta 5 frame. I have the 2006 5.2 and there seems to be quite a bit of flex left and right when the wheel is loaded.

    I have checked the pivot points which all seem clean and tight. The main source of flex seems to be from around the hub/wheel. I read a couple of posts suggesting the the QRs on the 5.2 are a bit ropey - and I would definitely agree with this.

    Has anyone replaced the QRs and improved this situation?

    Has anyone tried a 16mm thru axel hub on the 5.2 to solve this issue?

    P.

    It seems that some of the 06's did not ship with the main pivot properly tightened. (no issues with 07) - you may want to check the pivots before the bearings get tweaked and need replacing.
    This *may* be the issue you are experiencing. My 07 is pretty darn stiff (I'm a DH'r, so that of importance to me). I've not ridden the 06's so I couldn't tell you if the rear end felt different.
