Hi Guys,

 

I bought a Merida Reacto for my wife and in the owners hand book are 2 small plates 

about 10mm x10mm with double side tape.

please can someone tell me where they belong on the bike.

I think they might be frame protectors i might be mistaken.

They belong wherever you want them to go, but usually the best place would be on the sides of your headset where the cables make contact with the frame if you turn your bars.

they are a bit small for head tube protectors and the Reacto cables are from the stem into the top side of the top tube.

The one plate is flat and the other has a slight curve to it.

So they are purpose made to fit in somewhere.

Merida is completely unfamiliar to me.

Those however look like purpose cut covers of sorts.

Covers for cable routes if using Di2 or Etap perhaps.?

 

One for the top tube entry, and the curved one possibly on the bb.

It did come with a pack of insert's and cable reduction fitting's for Di2.

They are shimano parts go on the frame behind the front derailleur to prevent the alignment screw from damaging the frame

Ok cool  :thumbup:  I dont see any issue with anything touching or even close so just extra bits from Shimano and not Merida.

Correct shimano part if you look at f/d side on midway down there is a small window with a 2mm grub screw it's purpose is to support the derailleur from flexing under shifting so needs to be adjusted up against the frame the plate is to protect the frame from the screw
