Commencal Unique by À La Carte just debuted three new custom Meta TR all-mountain trail bikes. Not three models, but only three individual bikes… and one of them is already sold. So act fast if you need a rare shiny or sparkly alloy mountain bike.

The idea is simple – why ride the same stock bike as everyone else if you can ride something unique?

Their À La Carte online bike builds configuration tool is one of the most customizable in the industry, perfect if you already have the killer wheelset, favorite dropper & saddle, but still want to build up a new mountain bike.

But now Commencal is using the custom configurator’s powers for truly Unique bikes. So, they’ve custom painted up a few size large (large only in this micro-batch) Meta TR all-mountain bikes with one-of-a-kind premium finishes and prefabbed them with a top-shelf build kit.

The latest Commencal Meta TR 29er is a super capable triple-butted 6066 alloy trail bike that leans so all-mountain that it’s almost enduro. Longer & slacker sure, but this 140mm linkage-driven single pivot also gets reworked flip-chip-adjustable kinematics and paired to 160mm forks.

Very clever way to sell off excess part inventory, or for when they can only source odd component mixes, and charge top dollar at the same time. Smart move Commencal. I’ve owned 3 Commencal’s over the past 15 years and each one had excellent factory assembly and rode awesome. Literally can’t fault anything about any of the Commencal’s I owned. I hope to own a 4th Commencal at some point. Awesome bikes.
