I am in Kimchi land and getting warranty service for my Enduro SL Comp is a challenge. I really want another Specialized like an Epic, but am tired off warranty hassels.

So I am looking at an Merida Mission 2000-D, the price is right and it has Manitou Shock and Fork which I prefer over, overated Fox forks and shocks.

Anyway, has anyone ridden both and could enlighten me to what the differences may be?
