I re­cently ex­pe­ri­enced one of mod­ern cy­cling’s new per­ils – my Di2 bat­tery went flat mid-ride. My rid­ing part­ner, who I of­ten tease about his lack of me­chan­i­cal sym­pa­thy, took great de­light in this. Stuck in the small ring, ra­tioning my re­main­ing rear mech shifts, I was forced to sit on his wheel and spin fu­ri­ously to keep up. I still love Di2 but it’s a re­minder that the bat­tery doesn’t last for­ever. The Scultura now rides on some lux­ury rub­ber – 25c Vit­to­ria Pave CG Open Clinch­ers. Their ex­tra girth and 320TPI con­struc­tion have added a new silk­i­ness and sure-foot­ed­ness to the Merida.
