The Merida Big Nine 100 Mountain Bike is an entry-level hardtail designed to give you a lightweight feel and a scope of components that are reliable and offer features found on high-end bikes, it has an easy to use 2 x drivetrain with a clutch and has an air suspension fork with lockout. The Merida features a Shimano Altus drivetrain with dual chainring at the front and 9 gears at the rear, providing you with plenty of range for steep climbs and descents and keeping things super simple. While Merida has chosen to kit this bike out with Tektro Hydraulic disc brakes with a 180mm front rotor meaning you can have confidence in all conditions knowing you’ve got a reliable braking system with plenty of power to stop when you need to. The Merida Big Nine 100 mountain bike features a lightweight aluminium frame with a maximum wheel and tyre clearance of 29 x 2.20” and a 135 x 9mm axle standard. You’ll find more natural trails with tree roots and loose rocks quite comfortable with the Suntour XCR32 LOR fork featuring adjustable air suspension custom to your body weight which has 100mm of travel helping you maintain grip in the corners and power through climbs – a huge benefit to this fork is the lockout feature which will have you climbing with maximum efficiency and while still have access the 100mm of suspension on the rocky descents and flats – our staff Instore can assist you with setting up your air suspension fork to suit your body weight!
Merida has designed the Big Nine 100 29er Mountain bike for 2022 with eager riders in mind – their goal is to build a bike with reliable quality components at an affordable price for everyone.
