I posted this a few days ago in response to your post about your new Merak. I wanted to get your reponse so I thought I'd repost it. Thanks.

"is this your first Merak??? I always thought you had a Merak already by your many "Merak Record 10" endorsements. It's a sweet bike!!! Where did ya pick it up at and how much was the "song"?? Competitive Cyclist, maybe??? I just picked up a Fondriest Carb Level frame for $1500 at CC. Added a Dura Ace build kit minus the wheels and the total was $2250. Couldn't pass it up. CC currently has a blowout going on '02s and blemished frames for a smoking deal- had it been going on when I bought my Fondy I would have had a really tough choice, as the Merak is another of my favorites. A buddy of mine just couldn't pass it up and so he ordered a blemmed 45cm Merak with the D/A kit for $2500 TOTAL!!! Originally he got the Ultegra kit with upgrades on Spynergy Xaero wheels ($280 upcharge) and Ritchey WCS bars ($60 upcharge). It turned out it was cheaper to get the full stock D/A group. He scored bigtime. Hope you did too!!! Ride ON!!!!
