    Damn, they have done a Mercedes SLK update on it, I wish you hadn't shown me that, much prettier than the one one lurking at the bottom of my wardrobe.

    Thinking about this again, you ahve to wonder why they have bothered making these changes, they have the monocoque frame they use for the D10, so why would they go to the expense and trouble of updating the original frame design ?

    It is why the 2010 Golf GTi MK 6 is 'better' than the MKV. But, the nerd forums which I haunt, mostly prefer the MkV. It doesn't have the chavvy bits of silver trim around the air-vents.


    Your MK1 Mezzo is a Design Classic.

    Mezzo need to try harder than this. Their range needs expanding
    Need to offer options of faster bikes with higher gearing,like my upgraded version.
    Possibly introduce a rear suspended bike or one that takes big apples,rather than offering good road/commuting bike.
    Dual drive Mezzo (GOLD), Dual Drive Mezzo with bullbars (black), White Brompton thingy with Dahon Androes stem and bull bars. Birdie (old sytle) 7 speed. Downtube NS8. Birdie red.
