I'm being offered a decent price on 2011 stock on one of these by my LBS, but I can't seem to find any reviews or forum commentary on this bike. It's all XT running gear, and Fox forks and RP2 shock, so that should be all good, but interested to know does anyone here own one? How do you find it, how does it feel?

The spec sheet is on the Merida website, but I can't post it because of my postcount

For reference, until I spoke to my LBS, I had been seriously considering the Giant Trance X1 fwiw.
