I dont really care about the resale value. But i am a bit worried when buying these not big names brand, worried mostly about the safety how durable are these bikes. Bcs i plan to be going up and down some really step hills, i hope i am not putting my live in danger with my low budget. sweat.gif

If you don't mind me asking, which steep hills are you planning to cycle to?

Both also are OK actually.
If I was buying either 1 of these 2 options, I would choose the Specialized because their dealer is close by my taman. nod.gif
So it's easy for me to get there. rclxm9.gif

But as jaykay4540 mentioned, both bike not aero bike.

BTW, why do you choose an aero bike? Not endurance? hmm.gif

Need some guidance from pros/old timer here. Bought myself a decathlon road bike triban rc520. Decent hardware 105 groupset.

Has been clocking about 300 km so far at GCE. When climbing i see other riders can ride way faster and make me a little butthurt. But thinking maybe they have been riding longer than i am.

But when descending without pedaling they also go way faster. I had to pedal just to keep up. Is there something i miss?

Looking at the 105 gearing, yours is the 50/34T and 11/32T right?
And it's 11kg without rider.
So perhaps those other riders have better (lighter) bikes and have better leg strength than you at the moment.

For the pedaling hard while descending, did you change gears when you're coming downhill?

MaybeMany variables... tyres, wheelsets, bike more aero, rider heavier, rider body more aero, higher wheel pressure...

I find that having bigger chain ring....and casset like 11t...not quite suitable for me. I always on the medium...almost crossing the chain ring.....can hit 50 kmh on flat .....but wind is the major demotivating factor....try to be aero but perut buncit

If you're around SS2 area, there's Pedal Spot SS2. Look for Yeap. Or Eddie. Or Teh. excl.gif
They are Merida distributor.

hi geng , what do u upgrade in a bicycle 1st?

its been just 2 month and i'm itching to upgrade lol

btw how hard is it 1st time to use bike cleats?
*
Depends.
What is your bicycle's spec in the first place?
For example; if standard groupset already Ultegra, then no need to upgrade to Dura-Ace la.

ANNECY, France – The iconic brand Mavic has been in receivership since 2 May 2020. Nearly 10 months ago Mavic was officially sold by its parent company Amer Sports to the Californian private equity firm, Regent LP, for an undisclosed amount. However, the Mavic employees and the French unions now found out that another company is involved in the ownership.

A few weeks before the Regent LP took over Mavic, Finnish group Amer Sports was acquired by the Chinese consortium led by the Anta Sports Group for 4.6 billion euros.

If your current roadbike has Ultegra components, the top up a bit next time and can get Cannondale. devil.gif drool.gif

The easier way is to buy a complete bike but for sure pricey also la. sweat.gif moneyflies.gif moneyflies.gif

BTW, there are 2 type of frames from Cannondale. 1 is the Hi-Mod and the other is the normal version.
Visually, it looks identical but according to LBS, Hi-Mod is lighter and stiffer than the normal frame although it's the same model (e.g.: System Six Hi-Mod vs System Six). whistling.gif

Source: Mavic who owns them who knows

TL;DR?
To summarise: Mavic don’t seem to know who owns them. Regent says that they do. The French courts say that they don’t. A sub-brand of Amer Sports, Mavic’s owner from a year ago, seems to be on the hook for something, but we’re not really sure what. And, we’ve now got a headache.
If we know one thing for sure, it’s this: Mavic’s in a bit of a sticky spot.
