Merida Scultura 4000 Juliet (2017)
The 2017 Merida Scultura 4000 Juliet is a mid-range road bike. The 4000 is a fast build, designed for the rigors of racing, with excellent lateral stiffness, short stays for power transfer efficiency, and aggressive rider positioning. Construction is all carbon; the frame-fork join is nearly seamless, and the lines flow neatly from stem to stern. Kit is commensurate: Shimano's ace 105 drivetrain, providing quick, clean shifts, the levers also providing fine brake modulation; the wheelset is light, tough alloy, clad in Continental's fast-rolling and durable Ultra Sports.
A good performance road bike.
