|Decided on another Merak||Thioderek|
Jun 23, 2001 12:46 PM
|I took all the info given to me the other day (Ciocc, Colnago, DeRosa and Wilier) and decided to buy another Merak. The DeRosa is such a sweet ride that I couldnt see myself enjoying another bike as much.
The frame signed, sealed and delivered from England was only 1100 US for frame and intergrated carbon fork-you cant beat that for price. You cant buy a frame only in the US, only entire bikes. The next higher price was 1400 US, without shipping.
I am going to set it up with the Record 10 speed I have sitting still in the box, and a set of Ksyriums I have that I never used either. I should recieve it by the end of next week.
It is the Caldirola Team Bike, so at least the two Meraks will be different. Now I have to decide if I am going to sell one of them or not. Or I might set this new one up as triathlon bike and keep the other one for commuting and weekend rides.
