This is an auction for a near brand new Merida bike. I have had it for 1 year, and only did a few bunch rides and some races on it. It was used in schoolboy racing so it wasn't used to go very fast (haha) and it is in quite good condition. I am quite obsessive with keeping my possessions in top condition. I have been told a few times, as I wiped the bike down after a race or ride, that I might rub off the paint if I shine it anymore. I cleaned it after every ride, and I brought it around in the back of my car, so it isn't damaged from those rickety looking bike holders that go on the tow bar and look as if they might come off at any moment. I have upgraded the handlebar grip tape, as the previous owner was not as careful as me. There is nothing wrong with this bike, rather, it is simply to small for me to keep riding, and as I progress through to harder age groups, I find that this bike is not designed for racing, only bunch riding. The back forks of the bike are strong, and straight. This means that on a longer ride, it will take less energy to ride, and the vibrations of the road will be dampened considerably, compared to race bikes that don't care about that sort of thing.

*Note* the American classic CR-420 wheel is not part of this auction, if you want it, let me know. If you buy it with this auction, its $250 extra. This wheel is in excellent condition.

With it's lightweight aluminium frame, lightweight carbon fork and Shimano components you'll be ahead of the pack in performance but not on price.

The Merida Ride 93-com road bike has a Prolite 66 Triple butted high-strength aluminium frame, with egg-shaped head-tube and semi integrated bearings and large head-tube centre for optimal head-tube stiffness. Combined with a carbon fork, internal cabling routing, Shimano R-500 wheelset and Tiagra components it's high-performance bike at a very affordable price.
