Quick Preview: 2011 Merida Scultura Evo 905 road bike

It just looks good. Doesn't it?
It just looks good. Doesn't it?

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.

It’s fantastic.

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.
