Merida Big 7 XT Edition

Big seven

Same tree, different day, different bike. After the first couple of rides Merida’s Big 7 Alloy XT Edition is showing itself to be a very sprightly contender in the next Singletrack group test. It’s nice to get a bike with a full XT drivetrain instead of the usual mix and match.

  1. Loving my GloWorm X2! Bright, well made, robust, and light.
    You should probably have pointed out that STW Premier folks can get 10% off by using the code here:

  2. Those Tidds really are taking things to a whole new level of wtfness. Bottle cage bolts cost buttons and weigh hardly anything as it is, who’s going to notice the difference? One rotation through a patch of fox/badger poo will end up with more weight being added to the bike

  3. Free screw caps/hole blankers type things from ikea have been doing the my bottle boss cover for years. Tap in and forget. Costs nothing.

  4. WANT that EcoZoom stove!!! :-p

  5. “dried biomass”

    they mean poo, dont they?

  6. funny lookin’ XT cassette and brakes.

  7. Nylon grub screws for your excess bolt holes, weigh nothing, cost nothing.

  8. I wonder what the UK price will be on the Ecostove??

  9. valleydaddy – according to EcoZoom
    “Looking for where you can buy EcoZoom in the UK, email Stewart at or visit the Amazon UK EcoZoom page
    Looks like £116
