Hi,

This is my new summer bike. Always wanted a Merida after trying several different frames over the past few years. I am very happy with the finished product.

    Nice bike, but can't believe the shop have set it up with the computer sensor facing the wrong way :shock:

    excellent choice of bike. I was so tempted by one of these but would have meant poverty for a year while i made the payments..and there certainly aren't many about. Well done, I am so jealous!
    BTW Is there really a wrong way to put the sensor on, or is it another urban myth?

    No-one answered me - OP - what shop did you get that from please?

    Wow, that is sick sick sick. That rig is going a million miles an hour standing still. The saddle-bar drop, the bar angle, the shifter placement...all look mega pro. Those are some deep drop bars. Remind me of Cinelli 66s back in the day. You could go wild and reverse the bottle cages.

    I was skiing in Austria this year and Meridas are really big there and a couple pro-am teams ride them. The ski store (which is a bike store in the summer) had lots of pictures of the team at races in Ger, Aut, CH, Slo, etc.

    Frig me that's nice. The seatpost looks ISP but it isn't. Only issue is the white paint might start to complain if you move the seatpost up and down a lot.

    Wait to you get enough money to rock a pair of tubular SSC Ultimates on that!

  • Hi,

    Thanks for all of the positive remarks. The bike was built by Start Cycles in Newcastle and the i bought it as frame only and built it up per my own spec. Did a 112 on it Yesterday over Weardale in the North East and it was awesome (used the Aksium training wheels which are abit heavier but still class).

    I am taking the bike to ride in the Fausto Coppi in July so will see how it copes Alpine :)

    Had nothing but positive remarks from people who i have bumped into riding and other friends on the road!

    May give the SSC Ultimates a go when i replenish my funds :P! and love how aggresive the frame/drops are :)

    I advise anyone who is wanting something a little different but unsure, go for it there awesome!
    Freddie :)

    You know if you turn up to a club ride on one of these everyone will just gawk at it.

    I love it, it's bold but also quite unique.
