    Just noticed a small detail difference on my Meta 55 UK and your Meta 5 5 2. You know where the rear suspension is connected to the frame at the top? Yours is connected to the tube where the seat post goes into whereas mine is on the top. Wonder why the change? Mine is a Medium if that makes any difference?

    Nice, I was dead set on buying one from Merlin, but decided it wasn't sensible right now.

    Now they've sold out of the Large, I'm wishing I'd gone for it :(

    The large and extra large frames connect to the the seat, the small and medium the top :)

    I was told i bought the last large from merlin, sorry mate.
    Crashed it into a tree today, well i say that but i went into a tree and the bike seemed to wander down the side of Glentress. The wheel reflectors are off :D it was taken when the bike was brand brand new. :D

    Then it's official - it is the dogs bollox! :lol:

    ps Hope the bike is alright? You'll mend yourself! :lol:

    Little scratch on the sticker but thats about all, quite suprised actually. Its true, you worry more about the bike than you do your own safety.
    The wallett wont repair itself i tell you, its now locked until i get a proper job...jeeeeez!

    It's purely sizing, the frames are identical.
  • BurtonMBurtonM Posts: 425
    yeah its just sizing, if you think about it. theyre not going to make bigger shocks so they just need somwhere else to connect it when the frame gets bigger or w.e
