Liking:
The Crossway frame comes with many mountings threads for mud guards, pannierrack.

The handle bar can bring closer (more upright) or away(more sporty) from the ride with
adjustable stem.

Seat with suspension(comfortable)

Deore shifter, read and front de-rail, work fine and trouble free

paddling effort is very easy, smooth and quiet.

Frame is stiff, pillion+rider weight = 95kg, still feel sturdy up to 25km/h

Cons:
Tyre noise a bit high at speed over 30km/h. current is stock Merida speed
Probably a tyre suited more toward trekking

Front fork suspension seem only good for bigger bump or step
