Merida Scultura 4000 (2017)
The 2017 Merida Scultura 4000 is a mid-range road bike. A hair heavier than its aluminum sibling 400, the carbon-framed 4000 adds a carbon stem and post and a gorgeous color scheme, with matching accents on saddle and tape. The drivetrain is Shimano's stalwart 105, here with compact gearing, frame-size matched cranks, and the lightning-fast SS rear mech. The low-rolling-weight wheels are light, tough alloy, clad in Continental's durable Ultra Sport tires.
A good road bike.
