As everyone remembers, we were invited to test out the new 2011 Merida range last fall and I fell in love with the quality and stiffness of the bikes. Especially I enjoyed the carbon frame they have for their road bikes and even though I couldn’t afford a Reacto frame (yet), I finally managed to get my first proper road bike – The 2011 Merida Scultura Evo 905 carbon framed and Shimano Ultegra-equipped road racer.
Even though I have the largest 59cm frame size, the whole bike weighs only eight kilos which is by far the lightest bike I’ve ever had. I think my trike as a kid weighed more.
There’s a review coming, but now I’ll just ride for just a bit more.
