I'm liking that, how does it ride?

What size frame is it by the way..Just for reference purposes :wink:

Been looking at the same but the 2009 one in blue and white looks amazing.

For a modern, that is quite a nice looking bike.

My Rocky is a 17" as for the ride its great but I've never ridden much else!
The great thing about this bike is, I've had it 7 years, and it's still as fashionable/unfashionable as the day bought it, which in these fad driven times is quite something!

Rocky has accompanied me on several Merida 100k events over the last few years. and whilst riding alongside the many Wow super bikes I make a point of asking myself.... 'Would I rather be riding that or this and my answer has always been 'this'. It also gets pleanty of complements which I always find pretty cool.

I'm planning to move up to an XTR driverain later this spring.

Now as modernish bikes go that is a lovely looking machine, very nice indeed.
