What do you guys think about the Merida Ride 3000, Scultura 4000 series of bikes?
I currently have a Merida T3 that I bought a few years ago - basically serves as a commuter bike. I ride daily to and from work, roughly 26 km a day - and I'm in quite a hilly neighbourhood. I don't really ride outside of commuting.
I've probably ridden over 3,000 km over the past 2 years I've had the bike and think it's time for an upgrade.
I'm not super passionate about cycling (as I am about audio gear) so I'm not really sure what I should be looking for in a mid-level roadster. I'm thinking carbon fibre just because of all the hills in my neighbourhood. Discussions here also suggest disc brakes are the way to go, so I'll probably include that in my considerations too.
The most I could afford now is probably around $2k Aussie-D.
I bought my original bike from this place and basically went to their site, filtered on carbon road bikes and sorted by price ><
