Please, please, please make an XXL size! I am a big fan of your bikes, but (other than the new 29er DH), they are sized well too small for me. Please make an XXL, I want to buy this bike Commencal!

Is it even real mountain biking without the clack, clack, clack? Metal on metal! I been clack, clack, clacking' since '88 and that don't sound like no mountain bike.

I am really excited about the potential with this. A reasonably priced fork that is simple, effective and burly...basically what the original Z1's were. Too bad that Fox already did an orange 36 as that look would seem more applicable here.

The first time I rode a Z1 and my hands weren't numb 10 minutes into the ride and it felt like my hardtail had full suspension, I fell in love with that coil bath beast.

F you elastomers. F you in the deucer!!!!

I call this the "magic rock theory" Personally, I blame all my shitty race runs on outside influence. This allows me to maintain fragments of my fragile ego. I could go into examples but the tears would short circuit my keyboard.

Axle in front of lowers, sliders not inline with steerer... "almost no offset" See '18 Pike for comparison.
