The Merida Big Seven 300 is a mid-level performance mountain bike that can take your riding to the next level. The Big Seven 300 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 300 has 27.5” 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. If you are riding on smoother terrain and want to conserve some energy, the fork lock out feature can be accessed simply from the top of the fork leg. It is also equipped with Shimano disc brakes for reliability regardless of the conditions and improved control.
The Merida Big Seven 300 is a versatile mountain bike in the middle of the hardtail mountain bike performance range and will help you take that next step with your riding. The Merida Big Seven 300’s lightweight and durable frame, lockout on the suspension fork and quality range of Shimano parts, make this an excellent bike for those that want to enjoy riding, but are ready to get a bit more serious about riding.
