    Great bike.
    Light & stiff.
    Good sprinting.
    However, probably not a bike to buy if you want it to last 10 years.

    Do you have a Merak? Is there problems with durability regarding the tubing? Thanks for your reply

    A good friend had one. He's a solid 'A' grader (=Cat 1) and loved the bike. But after ~18 months, the frame started falling apart. I have heard of this happening from several other sources also.
    I think it is the kind of bike which is great for pro's who get new bikes each year and don't personally have to pay for the replacements! If you see yourself upgrading in a year or two, then I am sure you will love it.
