New plastic ride

Having always been a makedo and mend sorta guy. Receiving a new bike today where everything fitted together and worked as it should first time and very little fiddling needed to make it work as it should was a bit of a shock to the system.

A boxed merida FLX 3500D arrived in the shop today for me.

2 hours later i exited with a nice shiny carbon frame with Sids and mix of XT and XTR.

Weighed it on the scales when i got home and came up with 22.2Lbs

No idea how it rides yet , will find out on sunday going out on a 5 hour ride in the hills with it ..with another guy from the club who has the same bike!

and finally the pictures !
