Nice bike. Rotors are trick! I also like the subjective contrast between the pretty flowers and the brick :)

I own a Merida Crossway 800 commuter, it's been faultless for the last 2 years. Dealer tells me Merida are the 2nd biggest plant in Taiwan behind Giant, and they do the frame manufacture for Spezzie, Trek and a load more.

Thanks. Only reason I got the rotors was cause they're ano red, trying to bling the bike out with the stuff :D

Love Meridas, used to have a team issue road bike before selling it...
Good thing is that the frame is identical to the top model blinged out one, they just down spec'd this one.
