    Rode a 26er now ride a 27.5

    So I joined the ranks of the 27.5,,Sold my 26" Turner and was able to get into a Meta AM with only a few $$ outa pocket
    Few quick observation during the unboxing
    the 27.5" is HUGE coming from a 26",,had to do double check on the tire to make sure it wasn't a 29" lol
    Tapered head tube is Beefy compared to the straight tubes
    Frame lines and cable routing has come a long was since 2005(my Turner)
    Not the best kitted in the world(compared to what I'm used too) but I'll upgrade as needed
    1st up is a dropper,,First time riding down the street I immediately missed the dropper ,,oh and internal dropper routing for the win

    Congrats on the new ride! Commencal was on my short list before I got my SC last year.

    Not too popular here in SoCal but I do ride with a group, and there is about 3/4 guys riding Commencals, they look pretty solid!

    Sweet ride.

    I found my uphill riding technique also had to change a little bit when I switched over to 27.5
