|Style||UK Exclusive - Entry level 650b hardtail with sophisticated TFS aluminium frame 24 gears hydraulic disc brakes and plenty of Shimano componentry including chainset and hubs.
Merida's heartland has always been bombproof aluminium hardtails. Half a century of frame building experience counts for a lot.
The UK version of the Big Nine and Big Seven 15 have been upgraded to use a sophisticated TFS frame featuring the latest technology:
full internal cable routing for a clean neat set up
tapered headtube offering the potential for future upgrades
inboard disc brake mounts protect the brake and maximise stopping power
As much Shimano componentry as possible has been added to complement the modern frame and enhance reliability.
There are a wide range of sizes; Big Seven for shorter riders and Big Nine for taller riders with a healthy overlap between the two.
For riders in the middle riding style can be taken into account. If you are looking for speed and efficiency choose a Big Nine if you are looking for agility choose a Big Seven.
