I wish I could find a post like this one with all of the Mervin pics.
BTW, nothing wrong with the base on the Phoenix. Or is it that you do not like the design?
I have just heard people bitching about the base. For the price why would it be extruded? How much rocker is on the DK?
I rode the NS Heritage in Montana last year and had a blast. Then when back at my resort on groomers I felt it had too much rocker!
