I've read the reviews, and they all appear to be all good for the Meta AM. I'm just really concerned about that shock position, and would really appreciate some honest feedback from you guys (Commencal owners).
I ride mostly trail to aggressive trail. Given today's standards, the XC track at Pietermaritzburg -- the techy sections -- would really be by my standards, very aggressive trail riding. We have basically 2 seasons: dry and wet (or wet, and very wet), which translates to loose rocks, stones, dirt for 4-5 months; and mud (clay, where I usually ride) for the other 4-5 months. (the remaining months is when we're usually drunk on weekends). Of course, we have a mix of forest rides which throws the occasional root network, and sometimes deal with rock gardens. Getting an AM bike to hopefully push my riding further. Anyway, that shock is really at an "odd" position where all of the earth stuff seems to go to.
I'm sure the guys at Commencal know what they're doing, but from experience, how damage proof is that shock position...?
