Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.

It seems like I'm too late xD oh well, here's what i would have suggested to look at:

The merida because ive bought a Race lite 904 a few months back and love it (obviously the one i have shown is a bit of a step up). The ultra i would have said because it's a very good price for Di2 ultegra.... made me drool but it was about 1000$ out of m price range when i saw it.

Having said that, looking at the specs on the felt, its still a very good quality and value bike, not to mention the paint job... amazing, may it bring you many happy k's!

Good one gl2000

Hope you enjoy every second of it!

Sadly it is quite uncommon to be happy with your first road bike purchase, so I look forward to the Member to Member and Look at my new bike posts :wink: LOL

Snoopy,
Merida's were looking good but they don't make them big enough for the likes of me. I was leaning towards the Cannondale - which made one I'd fit - just.

Bosvit,
Took it on a nice long first ever run on Saturday (93 k) and was more pleased with it the further I wnet, despite the ach starting in the top of my shoulder from the unfamiliar riding position and the brakes not being where I hoped to find them once or twice.

Cheers,
Thanks heaps.

And pedals really do help with power transfer :mrgreen:

Thanks mate. Took it to Clovelly this morning, climbs better than a full suspension mountain bike (on the road at least ;) )
