Local LBS Merida dealer.
Walk in, ask about Merida bikes that they are a dealer for,
- she gets out the brochure and shows me the models.
I ask to have a look at a size small full suspension.
- they dont stock full suspension at all - but they do stock the hard tails.
can i look at a hard tail small,
- they dont stock it in a small.
can i look at a medium then and see whats that like if i want a full sus'er
- the dimensions are different
how much is a small full suser and can they get one in
- quotes the brochure price, doesnt think they can get one in for a while.
so thats the full retail price then i can get myself
- yes thats right
can you just supply the frame?
is there any other bike i could try
- no we dont have any small's in stock.
...and no, she isnt staff, shes the co-owner.
