    After taking out the Merak for its initial ride yesterday, I don't even know how I'm going to choose right now. I went out on a routine 30 mile loop and it just felt so comfortable, handling is superb and very responsive in/out of turns. For a frameset that cost almost $1300 less than my Noah Pro, I was surprisingly impressed because so far, I feel this is a comparable frameset without the higher cost of the Noah Pro. But I'm looking forward to our Sunday ride since its usually a 65-80 mile ride; I'll see how I feel after logging in the longer miles this weekend.

    Nice bike, try a little Oxy-Clean on the bar tape. Brings the white out on it.

    Well the bug has definitely bitten me. Over 700mi in 1/2 a year on my first road bike and dropping 20lbs, I bought myself my "halfway" there present, my "realistic" dream bike. sorry for the crappy pic, I snapped a quick one when I brought it home the other day, and have been too busy with work to even take it for a ride...getting anxious

    Ahh jeez, yea, we're a car family! Currently back at home while dealing with mortgage people and finding my own place to buy...I've only driven the Mustang around the driveway to move it for my mom cuz it doesn't have power steering but I'm technically too young for classic car insurance to cover me on the road...first world problems amirite?

    I'll admit, I like that you took the pic in front of your garage with the door open!

    Lol...convenient pic to post right? I actually took it just to send to my sister right after I bought it (hence the plastic on the saddle) but was reading this forum tonight and got too anxious!

    Classic cars, & bikes are my weakness. Far more expensive than any girl IMO(not married yet ), & they seem to last longer for me .

    Only pic I've snapped so far:

    2012 Specialized Tarmac Compact.

    Installed 25C Gator Hardshells, Look Keo Classics in red(already had them, not sure how I feel about them on this bike), and my Garmin Edge 200. Hopefully going to put some miles on it over the next few days(supposed to be beautiful here), but I got in an accident on my fixed gear on Monday that has left me pretty sore, and I've developed a decent cough since Tuesday. Oh well, I love the bike and I've only spent a mile on it, I'm thrilled to start racking up the miles!

    Looks good. Is it matte black and white? Some white keo 2max pedals would look great on there if you can't take the red.

    Thanks. It is matte black and white. I was thinking of vinyl cutting a red Specialized logo to go over the white one on the headtube, and then maybe some red KCNC skewers and the pedals might not look as out of place. If I decide against the red pedals, Keo 2 Max will be my next set, will definitely consider the white!

    The black Selle Italia saddle is the current one (better fit).

    It is a shame that you left the 7th drawer from the top on your toolchest open. Shame,shame,shame.

    Yes. Red is Flite Gel Flow.
    Black is Max Flite Gel Flow (146mm and feels better). I like the look of the red one better but only comes in 1 width (130mm) I'm happy w/ the Max.
