There is 15mm which will likely drop to 10mm or less.

Have you been working on your flexibility or have your arms stretched ?

Put it this way,
I can touch my hands flat on the ground BEHIND my feet from a standing position.
PS, that saddle height you see is about 15mm too high.

That one is Shannon's sister's I think.
Different model and the logo's are actually exposed sections of the carbon weave.
Mine will have decals instead.

2011 Merida Scultura 905. My First Roadie. It has rekindled my early child hood love affair with bikes.

This is not a go-fast bike. It is a go-far bike. I got it for doing Audax rides, especially long rides in mountains. It's for rides like the Audax Alpine Classic Extreme, the Taupo Enduro, the 310 km Snowy Mountains Extreme.

Image

Image

It consists of a custom-made Burls titanium frame with relaxed frame geometry, 3T Funda all carbon fibre fork with Chris King sealed headset, Dura-Ace wheels, cassette and chain, Ultegra brakes and derailleurs, T.A. Carmina cranks on Phil Wood titanium bottom bracket, titanium seat post, Selle Italia carbon fibre saddle, FSA bars.

Yes, folks, that's a 22 tooth chainwheel. I don't stand up for anything, not even the 20% pinch in Fitz's Epic :)

Image

I've signed up for Fitz's Extreme next month. It's 256 km and 4700 m of climbing. How hard could it be with a 22 x 25 bottom gear? :)

That Merida looks amazing!

Wow, reminds me of my nephew. He's 187cm (same as me) & he's 15yo.

Must be challenging finding a frame with your required geometry. Looking at your setup on the Cannondale makes it look like a 650c.

Great colour compared to my Black/Red Caad9.

Nice one aroes.

What is the crankset? Looks a big difference between big cog small cog.

None the less, if you need to get rid of it I know this poor bloke in Pt Lincoln who has to commute on an old Alu Trek with horrible handlebars. He wouldn't be able to pay you much because he is only a poor house painter......... 8) :lol:
