Rated 5 out of 5 by If Tonka made a Bike, this is it... Superb on the big mountain dh's, low centre of gravity makes it really stable. Weight is a tad higher than claimed, closer to 34lb with pedals on rather than the claimed 30lb. I've been riding a 2013 Lapiere Zesty 914 and find it to be too twitchy on the bigger rocky stuff where the Meta is totally planted and feels absolutely solid. found the step up from 26" a bit strange at first being only 5ft6 the bike felt a bit big, sorted this by replacing the big headset spacer/cap with a small one and fitting a low rise bar. Despite the weight it climbs well and the bar mounted CTD Lever is well worthwhile. The Ardent tyre on the rear has half the tread of the 26" model making it a completely different tyre, bit sketchy in the damp. Don't understand this, it's like when you buy a printer these days it comes with half filled ink cartridges, seems Maxxis are making half tread tyres!? The only real downside is the Formula brakes, same problem as I have with the 2013 Zesty, they suffer badly from pump up with the lever changing position on longer descents!!! I've had B4's and K18's previously which were fine but it seems the new range of lever T1 & R1 suffer badly from this dreaded condition! 05 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Brillian, World Class This is by far the best bike i have ever ridden in my whole entire life. I have been to many trial days and i have tried specialized enduro, different yeti bikes but nothing compares. This just floats over everything, tears downhill like there is no tomorrow. But the best thing is, it is easy to go uphill. It really is just the full package. Couldn't ask for a better spec, the price is very high but you really are paying for a genuine class leader. Another great feature is the 650b wheel size which is the happy medium between 29 inch and 26 inch. It flows through rock sections, carries speed, but also has the nippiness of the 26.
