    Merlin vs Litespeed welds

    I was comparing my 2001 Merlin Iliad to my friend's 2001 litespeed Tanasi. Litespeed welds look very crappy compared to Merlin's. Note: Litespeed bought Merlin in 2001. This may explain it. Anyone has seen a post 2001 Litespeed? Are the welds still crappy? You think they would have copied Merlin's welding techniques after purchasing them.

    my 1999 Pisgah's welds are far from crappy, not only is the frame light and a great handler but neither myself nor my bro have been able to damage it after 5 years of aggressive XC riding, racing and crashing.
