Commencal have released a hardtail called the "Ramones". For those that don't know the Ramones were an iconic punk band from the 70's famous for their fast three chord paired down style. Now I don't want to sound negative but I was a big Ramones fan and I reckon if they were to produce a bike it wouldn't be a mountain bike, it would be a BMX with a black leather seat and no brakes.

I do like hardtails though, so I hope this one lives up to the name.

A new family of long-travel hardtails makes its appearance in the COMMENCAL range: The Ramones. Ultra modern yet with old-skool pedigree, it is the ultimate hardtail for any terrain you care to take it on. The Ramones is a bike for riders who are looking for fun, with just one bike in their garage. It's versatility means it is at ease on your evening ride with friends, out on the local dirt track, or challenging the mountains this summer, old-skool style!
