Hey Guys

Been looking at merlin after my light purchase and they have some raceface kit like 60.00 off.

like the next xc sl low riser for 49.99 or the next xc for 39.99

how do they get such a cheap prices compaired to everyone else ?

Nothing wrong is there.

    There won't be anything wrong with it. I'd looked at that myself.

    I have the same bar on my Anthem (low riser) and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

    Shame they're charging £80 for the OS version!

    They will probably be OEM parts, hence the price.

    Nothing wrong with OEM parts, my X9 mech & shifters are OEM (from Merlin) saved me a fair bit of cash :)

    I think merlin is Tops - I buy lots of stuff there.

    Looking at a steel Rock Lobster too! Full XT group set and Reba Team fork upgrade for 974 including delivery - really decent wheelset as well - to build that bike would cost 1700/1800 easily - I don't know how they do it either. Don't ask questions... :D

  • I didn't ask questions when they built me my Malt 2....for some reason i got it cheaper than it should have been :wink:
