    its not the money i’m minted already given them away but with shops if all you can see is a picture then the picture should be what you get.

    I hope these pictures explain why buying the product based on looks is unwise – not cheating and looking at the code can anyone tell them apart?

    as far as i can tell, using only looks, paint the lockring black and ta dah you have XT

    There we go!

    its a line of numbers means nothing to normal people

    I read it as a usefully descriptive list of items and their prices… πŸ˜‰

    Best thread in ages!

    And yet you had to keep trying to flog your Yeti. It’s hardly an indecipherable list of numbers, it clearly says SLX or XT.

    He wants more for used Hayes rotors than Merlin do for new SLX ones !(well I assume they are Hayes as there are no pictures )

    who goes of codes I cant tell you what rotor is what code not unless your some sort of rain man, I loo for pictures when on a web site the picture shows XT you get SLX wrong.

    Loving the thread tag!

    OP you are going to be REALLY disappointed if you ever use a dating website or order a thai bride online, because what turns up is NEVER what you ordered.

    Don’t eat in McDonalds for god’s sake. You’ll explode when you see what they serve compared to the pics!

    Just a second, I think I’ve been had too. Ordered a set of Reba forks and the photo on the website shows a white pair with QR and the box arrived containing a black pair with 15mm through axle! By some coincidence though that was exactly what I wanted, I wonder how they knew? πŸ™‚

    Edit: I’d love to watch the OP try and order a Hope pick and mix headset from Merlin.

    Superb. Please keep it up. I can’t bear to watch The Bourne Supremacy again … actually I can.

    Regardless of model, there’s no banana for scale. I ordered what I thought was a 203mm and ended up with a 140mm πŸ™

    you may get a e-mail from Merlin cycles showing some good deals on Shimano XT centre lock rotors so you select your size put them in the basket the basket shows the XT rotors your getting or think your getting
    but when they arrive there the poor slx ones not the XT they change the item code to the poorer slx ones, when you contact them you get pictures for reference purposes only which is total w@n!/ so be cautious Im done in with this shoddy practice unless we stamp this out this will become the norm.

    I bought a tin of dulux the other day but have to take it back as mine seems to be missing an old English sheep dog…it’s just full of paint. Not the bargain I was expecting…

    It is incredible. A mate of mine has a machine for drying them out and makes his own raisins!

    Can he put it into reverse and turn a kilo raisins into a bottle of wine? That would be clever…
