    The badge on the headtube makes me laugh a bit... bicycles are handmade. No one uses robots to weld them like in car industry.
    Can You take a pic of the non-drive side?

    Ok, then... not every company uses robots? I've been to some big factories on Taiwan and in China, and I've rather seen people welding frames... So, hand made production is nothing extraordinary.

    OH, and here's a full story... http://www2.merida-bikes.com/en_INT/Technology.Robotwelded and then, they made magnesium frames, that all broke :|

    did they change the geo or anything at all for 2010? looks great in yellow, but i think a matching yellow seatmast would go better than the white.

    So how does the kid like the large compared to the medium? Is that the seat mast off the medium?

    Did it crack at the weld? Was the crack due to a hard crash or regular use?

    Yea, what prompted this decision? I remember he mentioned that they (Xprezo) recommended the large but he insisted on the medium first time around.

    Geoff will test it at the last two Plattekill Races before returning it. There are some very minor changes that Xprezo wanted him to try. The yellow paint is left over from a custom job. It matches his first DH bike when he was known as "banana boy".


    Xprezo will be offering Demo Rides at The Plattekill Gravity East Final this weekend.
