Merida has designed the Big Nine 60 with emerging riders in mind – their goal was to build a bike that blended reliability, performance and affordability for everyone. The difference between the Big Nine 60 and the Big Nine 20 is the upgraded, wide-range drivetrain and the ever-reliable Rock Shox fork. You can tell Merida has done an excellent job at investing in areas that have a big impact on the riding feel of the bike such as the brakes, gears, and lockout suspension, while they have really gone the extra mile to give you the latest modern features such as internal cable routing which not only looks great but protects your cables from weather and potential ‘incidents’ out on the trails. However, the best aspect of the Merida Big Nine 60 is that you know you’re getting amazing performance at a great price!
SHIMANO ALTUS DRIVETRAIN
The Big Nine 60 features a Shimano Altus drivetrain with 2 chainrings at the front and 9 gears at the rear, providing you with plenty of range for steep climbs and descents while still offering the range to smoothly roll along the flats.
The lightweight aluminium frame and 9mm thru-axles balance rugged reliability and performance without adding unnecessary weight.
HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
Merida has chosen to kit this bike out with Shimano Hydraulic disc brakes, ensuring you you have confidence in all conditions knowing you’ve got a reliable braking system that stops whenever you need it.
