Picked the 2013 Merida Carbon T5 Speeder up yesterday. Looks so good in red and loving the white jagwires and 700/28 wheels.

Still something about a simple decal'd white bike that looks great.

I used to have an all white bike, never was a big problem, white is good for knowing when it's really clean or not so...

Picked this up a week ago. Had some issues with the bike shop when I wanted to change the 36 tooth chainring to a 34 they phoned me to tell me the chainrings were non replaceable, I didn't have any issues doing it myself, either they lied to me or they don't know what they are doing, either way I'll never shop there again. They also wanted to charge me $155 to change to an 11-28 cassette as they said they could only get their hands on an Ultegra one, I'll build the next bike myself, as I did the bike before this one.

Great looking CX bike. My mate was keen to get one but they only go up to 57cm frame size
and he needs a 60cm.

You've done a great job - that's one awesome (and tough looking) CX'er. I love the blue highlights - well done. Do the CUBEs come with dual bottle bottle mounts, or did you add on those on the downtube? I only ask as the BMC I have has only one set of mounts (on seat tube), which is apparently a more traditional approach, and as a result of CX riders having to constantly sling the bike over their shoulder. Personally, I reckon two sets of mounts is a more sensible idea...

You should see the 2013 product catalogue.

It's a massive hard cover book.

My new bike! I had been riding fixed gear and an old 1984 Christoff roadie which got me hooked on longer distance riding than the 10 or so km rides I had been doing. Unfortunately I found a crack in the seat tube so I got this for a great deal, rides like butter and am very happy. Sorry, it's not full carbon or Dura Ace equipped. Tiagra groupset, alloy frame, carbon fork.

The Cubes come with two bottle cage mounts, its a 59cm size though the way they size them it is more like a 54cm, being a cross bike you usually size them a little smaller and this seems favourable in comparison to my 56cm Trek road bike. I do find it a little twitchy and need to fine tune tire pressures for on/off road, currently running 65psi, think I'll drop it to 50 and put 40mm tyres on next change, there is tonnes of room for larger tyres, should reduce some of the twitchiness. The Shimano CX70 brakes are great, I've been riding some off road 35% descents and had no issues with the brakes, only the tyres feel a little sketchy in this situation. The bike is solid and stiff as with a massive square down tube and a huge headtube, it doesn't shake you up too much either. It also doesn't have this BB30 nonsense (personal opinion only). I think I'll be changing the cassette to an 11-36, with a derailler change also as the terrain I've been riding it on consists of 30% degree plus gravel ascents and you really need to be be seated with a low gear for these.

build completed. I must admit I'm quite chuffed with how it turned out. Rides as good as it looks too.

Drool worthy build - It looks hot. The down tube reminds me of the Bianchi Oltre.

Grats on the set up! Hope it gives you many good km's! :D
