That's nice! I really like the black and white colour scheme.
My Merida is almost the same colour scheme, apart from I changed the black seat out for a white to make it more "balanced" (not sure if that's the right word).

i had like a cream saddle, but gave into to the fact the phenom gel is just a much comfier saddle, despite not entirely fitting in with the scheme :)

Looks good. I run the rear brake hose on my stumpy above the top bolt of the shock in the shock mount as it gets it out of the way when riding.

Nice. Agree the rear brake cable looks a little short. What pedals are those?
