My old Meta 4 with some upgrades.

2014-01-09220842_zpsf76a640f.jpg

new Superstar wheels, my Ebay £12 Crank Bros pedals, I have removed the big chain ring and fitted a SRAM PG980 9 Speed (11-32) Cassette, chain and new BB too, it runs like a dream...

all those upgrades for less than 200quid :D

    Only after selling mine and building something new do i realise how much of a great bike the meta is.

    Enjoy it! I love mine. It's begging for a Reverb though ;)

    I have had it for 3 years now and for a short travel bike it is very capable, I was in the market for a new bike this year but I will just spend some money on this one as it just feels.....right if you know what I mean 8)

    Only thing i didnt like about mine was with lack of rigidity in the rear end, and the weight with the build i had.

    I know what you mean back end is a bit floppy when pushed hard but it doesn't really make a great deal of difference for the sort of riding I do, TBH I doubt it would to most others.

    Its comfy, it grips well and its relatively cheep :D

    scoping for new stem and bars for it now, recomendations welcome
