The Merida Big Nine 100 is a hardtail mountain bike is that is built for recreational cross-country riding. The Big Seven 100 is equipped with the 2019 RaceLite 6061 Aluminium frame which is a lighter and more advanced frame than previous years. The frame is lighter, yet stiffer because of additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thickness. This means that you get a quality frame at an affordable price. Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8″ bearings in the top and 1 1/4″ or 1 1/2″ in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering. While the cables are routed internally through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
The Big Seven 100 has 29” wheels and 100mm travel suspension fork with a lockout. The fork from SR Suntour offers 100mm of travel to smooth the bumps on the trail and the lockout is ideal for riding more efficiently on smooth surfaces as well as climbing out of the saddle. The fork lock out feature can be easily accessed from the top of the fork leg If you are riding on smoother terrain and want to conserve some energy. It is also equipped with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes for improved control and reliability regardless of the conditions.
