Just got this. It is an original team bike from Lampre-Merida. Sorry for the shitty pictures but when i get the bike put together I will take some new ones.

Specs:

Frame: Merida Reacto Evo size M/L
Groupset: Shimano DA Di2 9070 with Rotor Flow crankset
Sadel: Prologo scratch pro cpc/Selle san marco concor(plus an extra seatpost)
Stem: The stem says FSA OS-99 CSI but it dont look like the ones you can buy ?
Handlebar: Noname? there is no name one the handlebars but it seems to be some kind of carbon handlebar
Wheels: Fulcrum Racing speed XLR team edt.
bottlecage: Elite

An ex Lampre guy said that this frame was so stiff he did prefer to ride another Merida model (can't recall the name...) for longer rides.
Anyway waiting for your own ride report and complete build pictures!

Just out of curiosity, why 2 seatposts?

Just came back from a quick spin(90km) and OMFG this bike is a beast. It is the stiffest bike I have ever ridden. The handling is very lively but not in a bad way. The handling gives you the confidence to go faster and faster into the corners without loosing any control.
in regards to the stiffness and how harsh the ride is I have to agree whit the Lampre-man. It is very harsh to ride if you have to rider for more than 200km(like the pros do). There would be no problem if you only have to use it every Sunday - for lets say 150km-.

The reason why there are two seatposts are that the one is new and the other one have some scratches from being fitted. 8)

I spoke with Jan Polanc this past Sunday at nation championship and he confirmed this. He said that Reacto was too stiff for him especially on long stages and descends. He said he could not wait to get new Sculptura... must be true, he won 5th stage of Giro to Abetone :D

Slap a -17 edge stem on there if it fits! The lines of that bike need it!
