Recommended Posts

Rumours have it that the 96 is replaced by a 99 for 2012. If these spy shots are correct, then they have gone totally backwards!!!!! This setup is just not looking nice. :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

 

Note the Merida Team colours on the bumper of the vehicle - seems like the rumours might be true.

 

Merida Ninety-Nine, spyshots!

Who the hell cares about the name if you get good quality for money! The same cannot be about your Zula. Maybe a good bike, but the price!!!

I also like it...

 

Looks good the way they've made the top portion of the rear triangle into one piece, instead of 2 separate pieces, in order to increase the structural rigidity of the triangle. Also looks a little like Giant's Maestro suspension design, which is thought to be one of the more successful designs in the XC market...

 

Looks like it could do well, and it's different to the norm.

Yup, it does look quite a bit like a Giant Anthem.

Maybe it got tired of looking like the Scott Spark ..

LOL!

 

I said it looks like, not is exactly the same! The main pivot point is different to the Giant's, as well as being the point at which the shock connects to the frame. The BB is below the pivot point, whereas with the Giant, the BB is below & behind the pivot point. Also, the chainstays on the Merida are one piece all the way to the pivot, whereas the Giant's connect to a secondary pivot behind the BB...

Dammit Nick! I need friends man! Why did you have to go and do that!??! :P

 

Anyway, certainly not a revolutionary design.... I'm sure it'll be a good bike though.

As a merida rider, I have to say I don't really like the look of the design, but saying that, they got the 96 pretty right as a real racing duel sus (not that I have one, still on the old 26inch HD), so I can only imagine how good these changes will be.

 

We can send Squier and Rossaline (with no child) over to invertigate :lol:
