just after some thoughts about which bike i should keep out of the 2. the story goes like this..
I bought the Wilier Alpe D'Huez brand new with dura ace 9 speed and I found it to be a great bike. The frame is made out of aluminium and has carbon fork, carbon seat post and carbon rear stay. As time moved on, carbon bikes became the craze.
A mate of mine was sponsored by Merida so he could get me the Scultura 909 Flex stay very cheap. this bike is completely made out of carbon, including the handlepbars (FSA integrated - No adjustments can be made to the tilt of the handlebars or the stem length) This bike is equipped with10 Speed Dura ace group set.
I sold my Wilier to a mate who barely rides but the Merida has been a bike which i haven't been to be completey comfortable on. I know I know, I shouldn't of bought it.
Now what im thinking is to swap bikes with my mate which I think he would do.
What are your thoughts about that? Am I better off keeping the Merida seeing as though it is equipped with 10 speed Dura Ace or should I get he Wilier back? I can put the wheels which are currently on the Merida (Fulcrum R1) on the Wilier if i get it back. Are there any other parts worth swapping over. My mate wont mind seeing as though he would ride about 300km per year. Thats right, 300km, Not many at all.
I'll attach a picture of the 2 bikes when i work out how to
What are your thoughts?????
