@kgt, I simply took off the Lampre and Rotor stickers which were originally on the frame. Please ask Merida why they use so many logo.
As for the bar tape, I wanted to use something unusual otherwise Im always on Fizik microtex (which will be on as soon as this need to be changed).
@KarlC, I can't feel any big difference from the previous Canyon CF SLX I used to own (Im using same training/racing wheels), beside a tidy bit slower in changing direction in tight corners.
Im not a big fan of the rear brake under BB but Im "surviving it".
That cut on the seatpost is just a piece of plastic supposed to help to absorb vibration; my guess is that with that escamotage they made the seatpost slimmer in that exact spot for make it more comfortable (by the way, the seatpost is an anchor, 299 gramms).
But your italian, living in Vicenza (cicli Basso?) ..And first you ride a Canyon with Campa, change it to sram .. and now Merida with Shimano ...?
So many nice italian bikes fabricated near by ..
Danoontje, you surely have good memory!
My first bike was a local italian one (honestly dont know who made the frame, probably Vetta or Vision) with a Campagnolo Mirage, then the 2nd one again a local one with Campagnolo Record.
Then as you know things change and I like to try different things than the usual ones (nowdays in here it's full of Tarmac/Venge/F8 and so on).
Just to point out, in my bedroom I've a Chesini 83 aero with Campagnolo Super Record and a Colnago Super with Campagnolo Nuovo Record. A Colnago C40 1st version waiting to be built and plus a small collection of Campagnolo items.
By the way, I'd never buy a Basso cause he's locally known as a pr!ck.
