issues at build date:
shifter is super slop. rattles on trails. Hard to shift, loud and pings the rear wheel every shift....ping.....clank..... not sure how to address yet.
hub bearings needed extra grease
free hub also needed cleaned out and lots of good grease to add.
box two rear derailleur issues:
clutch had to be removed cleaned up and heavily greased. Also had to grease clutch roller bearing. problem was clutch was very notchy sending thud through the frame ever time sus compressed and clutch moved. clean and re-grease completely alleviated the issue. now smooth and tight. found outer mech bolt loose. removed and added some grease. stem for xl should default to 35mm for either bar thickness.
Frame/Bike should come with a warning.....the bb is low as f. 160 mm cranks or lesser. Schredd with care..... All love... Commencal.
This old (old enough for a driver's license) bike was acquired as a new frameset direct from SC as a warranty of a Heckler 2, and went through a few configurations before it was updated earlier this year to the state described here.

So far it has been working really good. I've used it from dry (not dust) to wet (not mud'ish) and i've nothing bad to say about it.
It's fast and I haven't washed out or experienced thread packing with dirt.
If the trails are going soft for the weekend i'll through on a Hellkat instead.
I normally run Hellkat/Pinner on my FS.
