This is my updated timetrial bike for this spring. I replaced my old cannondale slice alu frame with this one and also a new crankset and a 3T bar. I only struggled with the cable routing, when the snow is gone I am going to testride it to see if everything fits.

Most excellent! :thumbup: I haven't seen many Merida although I'm really liking what I see. Are those your tt wheels or trainers for the bike?

these are my TT wheels for four years. I wand a closed rear wheel but I don`t like the feel of the wind blowing against it.

This is the first TT Merida in the forum I guess.
Very nice.

Im not the most expert one, but isnt the front derailleur cable doing a wrong route on the steer tube?

I`ve tried several cable routings but none of them works maybe because it is not a complete intergrated TT bar. I wanted the cable routing trough the bar to my shifter. If i change my shiftcables to front right and rear left the routing is better but then it is difficult to remember witch shifts what.
And I am going to try this setup first on the road then all is differend. after that I make a deccision.

After some paint cracks and 6 months of waiting for a warranty frame,
Merida gave me a Black Night 2011 including top tube cable routing.
The frame was well equipped with a piece of foam to put around the top tube for clamping in a workstand
an 2 spacers to increase the headtube, two trp brakes, adjustable seatpost.
I`ve got a DT swiss rrc1300 disk wheel in order and will post a pic with that also.

It appears the bottom of the down tube extends low enough to push the wind away from the bottom mounted brake, is this correct/

BTW Very nice replacement! :wink:
