    VTT Free Raid, France : Europes answer to Crankworx! (lots of pics of euro DH bikes)
    Well I was lucky enough to get the invite from Commencal bikes (our generous Team Sponsor) to see the 2007 Commencal line-up at the VTT Free Raid, Les Deux Alpes in the French alps. Yes the Commencal line up kicks ass but its a secret to be let out in the near future so for now well have a look at the competition and the amazing line-up of europes finest DH/4X and Enduro bikes.

    But it is single pivot, which makes a difference.

    im really liking all those frames, the totems look sweet.

    question though what are those pinch bolt looking structures on the headtube? is that so u can easily remove your headset cups or something?
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!

    That second pic is a VPP bike... not a DW(Sunday)... a Santa Cruz. Read the seat stay linkage... not so unique.
