Just had a full service, new bearings, BB etc etc. Just fitted a FSA K-force (slightly) laid back post, lizard skinz 2.5 DSP bar tape and carbon Elite cages. Also dura-ace BB, Schwalbe The One tyres, dura-ace chain and brake blocks finish it off. Had this frame now around 7 months and love it even though it isn't really that "sporty" but more "Sportiv" orientated for comfort. Without doubt though the best cycling add-on I have ever invested in is the Di2. Just superb. Not a single issue since fitting last summer. Not one dropped gear or even a clunk just instant seamless changes up and down with zero chain rub on the dérailleurs. Would 100% recommend electronic shifting. Ultegra groupset also a great add-on, wheels and brakes considerably lighter and stronger than standard Merida kit at this level.

I was very close to buying a Merida Reacto 7000 Aero frame and forks last month but backed out at the last minute as I just didn't really NEED it! So here we are Laughing
