Maybe better said @Jpez but the effect is the same, not lawful for Commencal to sell here as-is. I've tried sourcing it from OS for a few friends but the ability to ship here is not available. Hand brake skiddies are way better anyway, I'm teaching mine to let off the brake after dropping one...
I've been informed by Commencal my son's Ramones 16 doesn't meet Aus law as it doesn't have a rear coaster brake, which is the exact reason I bought it for his progression. Also the reason why it is currently not available for sale, and Commencal says won't be in future. Sucks.
Yeah quick swap, it's just physical cables to swap in the lever. Suggest you disassemble and lube bars, stem and vbrake calipers and housing (yeah shouldn't have to I know) was crusty AF and felt like sh1t, brakes were inconsistent with low spring tension.
Edit; freehub will loosen up too.
Upgrade time from the 12. I was wrong to doubt the timing, it's geared taller mechanically and effectively, but he nailed it first time out. He was sad to lose the pedal brake but smiled when I said he can still do skiddies with the new rear brake.
Everyone is different, although for me Tags remind me of an industry I was once in where everyone had one, and looked down on your IWC or Rolex because they had NFI anyway. There's other watches but they may be too out there if you have settled on those two, E.g. IWC pilot, portugeser, even...
I bought a one-up dropper for the discount but tbh the other prices even with 30% were touch and go. The range has suffered a bit last few years, no doubt a few things beyond their control going on in our region. Happy trails back in NZ T7!
