My "NEW" 2010 Merida "Road Race" 903-10, it's my first road bike, so not full carbon sub 7kgs monster or anything, but It's a very good beginners ride!

Yep good ride for the money Cheapfixed... I swapped out the wheels, tyres & seat on mine and you can certainly feel the improvements. :D

I think you mean "claimed 800gr frame"! I briefly chucked it on a small scale out of interest when it arrived, I think it came in around the ~1000 mark. Still, nothing to complain about 8)

Hi All,

Have admired many a bike on this forum and thought it was time to post my trusty steed...

Image

Story behind this goes as follows: Had an F3:13 which got a crack in the seat tube at the top about 6 months ago which was covered under warranty (by 1 month) and thought it's not very often you get a chance to upgrade by only paying the difference between what they were going to replace and the new frame... That's what I told the wife anyway. :D

Finally got around to upgrading the wheel hence time to put the photo up.

Pinarello FP-7 Frame
Campagnolo Shamal Ultra Wheels
Campagnolo Athena Cranks & Chainrings
Campagnolo Centaur for the rest
3T Ergonova Pro Bars
3T ARX Pro Stem
Prologo Scratch Pro Ti Saddle
Look Keo Blade Carbon Pedals
Continental Grand Prix 4000S Tyres

Well yes there is. If you bought an 800 g frame based on BH advertising and it turned up 200 g heavier that IS something to complain about.
I wonder if its typical? If it is its downright fraudulent.

However a 1000g frame is mainstream good weight and the stuff on it looks nicely light. The bike is probably a joy to ride.

Is that a carbon seat I spy?

Yes it is, a Velocite which came from a recommendation from a friend. Fits my rear end quite nicely.

WIth regard to the weight - I mean that a 1000g frame is nothing to complain about. I actually bought the frame second hand, so I wasn't concerned about the claimed weight at that time. I'd also read around on the internet and it seems that a few people were seeing weights of around 900-1000g for their G5, so it wasn't totally unexpected. But I do agree with you that BH claiming 800g may have been pretty unfair, but (correct me if I'm wrong here) this seems to be becoming a bit more common in the marketplace recently. Didn't Pinarello claim a 54 Dogma (2010) was around 1000g, when actual weights were turning up ~1200-1300? In any case it's not right, but as I said I bought it second hand knowing full well it may not be 800g.

Updated pic:

Changed the Prologo Evo saddle (it looked good and colors matched beautifully but sadly my butt did not like it). Now back to the trusty Fizik Arione in red/white. Added resin Bottle cages and fizik saddle pack. Todays ride is the first on new rubber - pair of red Michelin Krylions 23c.

Image


After a few months riding, I am abssolutely loving this bike. Comfy ride, much less harsh than my alloy Cannondale. I get a good position with the Deda bars and 110mm stem. Love the Sram Force/Red grouppo - even if it is finicky with tuning. The Krylions are awesome too - once you wear the layer of wax they come with off - much better cornering and grip than the gatorskins. Lets see how they go with puncture protection. Very happy cyclist right here :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


PS - dont you just love the Jacarandas in bloom in spring/summer :D
