MERIDA RE­ACTO 300 £1000

Cycling Plus - - ROAD TEST -

The triple-butted Re­acto has sim­i­lar ge­om­e­try to Merida’s alu­minium Scul­tura race bike but with more aero­dy­namic tube shapes, in­clud­ing a teardrop-pro­file down-tube and fork, and a car­bon aero seat­post with a trun­cated rear end. It’s a lit­tle heav­ier than the non-aero road bikes here and has Shi­mano Ti­a­gra com­pared with 105. Can its aero fea­tures de­liver the speed it prom­ises?
