So it's nothing new to be able to buy just a frame from your favourite bike company, but Commencal have just established a new middle ground. The new Commencal factory framesets are more than just a frame but not quite a complete bike. Take the Meta 6 above. You get Fox 36 Talas forks, Thomson stem, FSA headset, carbon Easton bars and a Crank Brothers Joplin seatpost. The rest of the build is up to you, it's a pretty dam good start. Commencal's New Zealand distributor has the full range of factory framesets in stock. The following Commencal models are available as Factory framesets: Meta 6, Meta 55, Super 4, Skin, Supreme DH and the Supreme. Check out the Specs here.
