  • Merlin cycles pulling a fast con be cautious
  • What about some superstar rotors? Although I’ve heard about people being court out by them aswell.

    Can the OP link to the page with discs on? The only one I see is this one:



    Which has a pic of a XT rotor, but you have to select which one you want? So you’re saying you selected an XT one, but got a SLX one? Or you selected an SLX one, but thought you would get an XT one, due to the picture?

    did you speak to merlin and ask for a refund? or just rush straight to a keyboard with no punctuation marks and start ranting on the internet?

    Just to confirm.

    You saw the picture of the XT rotor, and the clicked the cheapest option where it says SLX, and then you received an SLX rotor?

    OP are you looking at the same thing as the rest of us which is the page linked above where there is a picture of a rotor and a list of rotors with type size and price ? I cant see how there is a problem .As I said I put a couple in my basket and all was correct.!

    C’mon, fella.

    You didn’t have to be working at Bletchley Park to work out this code…

    You just read the description of the item and put what you want in the basket – SLX,XT,XTR it’s all marked pretty clearly. If it was ambiguous or blatently wrong i’d agree with you but seems fine to me.

    If they created a product & picture for each item there would be people moaning it was too hard to find what they wanted!

    Personally i’d have a hard time trying to work out which one of Shimano’s many similar looking discs I wanted from looking at a picture, i’d just look at what it said next to the buy button.

    merlin replied with the pictures for illustration purposes only which isn’t on the screen anywhere or in the basket, u have to say I’m surprised your not against this sort of thing, you buy with your eyes you get what you see in the basket surely ?

    So when you clicked, you couldn’t tell the difference between XT & SLX, but now it comes to complaining you seem to have worked it out. 🙄

    They do say the first bite is with the eye.

    Quite possibly, but it’s not hurting anyone.

    so you think thats its fine to show a picture of soemthing your not getting even when you put it in the basket ?? thats not how it works

    If i choose an xt rotor i expect an XT rotor
    If i choose an SLX rotor i expect an SLX one

    I dont expect to get what the picture shows especially when it is a different item from the one i have chosen
    Imagine you choose XTR and they send you the XT one in the pic , I assume you would be over the moon with them then ?

    I look at pictures when shopping not codes

    Hopefully this has taught you why such an approach is foolish
    Return it as the distance selling regs protects you from merlin though I think they actually need protection from you

    I have nothing constructive to say, I’d just like to register my amusement! Worst “fast con” ever!

    they send you an e-mail telling you deals on shimano I think 203mm rotor nice price i click on the correct size the picture shows an XT rotor im thinking thats the boy jobs a good un, im not checking item codes its a line of numbers means nothing to normal people.

    you buy with your eyes by carefully reading the product description and model you get what you see in the basket surely or is it caveat emptor?

    OP. Just send the rotors back and look upon it as a lesson learned.

    Why has nobody asked the Op how much they paid for the rotor?

    Edric 64

    Or just use the cheap rotor as an upgrade on your apollo ,you need good brakes on your paper round after all.

    He didn’t pay at all, just sent merlin a picture of some cash.
