He was looking at the one above because the shop is willing to do him some discount. I’m not very clued up on ht’s.Posted 6 years agodon simonMember
What type of riding does said friend want to do?Posted 6 years ago
Personally I wouldn’t touch Merida after they stitched a shop owner friend of mine up and they still haven’t taken down the signs they put up for the 2009 product launch in my village. I’m sure the bikes are fine though.
Thanks. I’ll send him that link. He’s tested the one I linked a little and it feels the right size.
He’s mainly going to be riding cross country. He’s been away from them playing on motorbikes and he’s coming back to it now.
It is an awkward price to buy at because if he spent a couple of hundred more he would start to get into the reduced price Ghost range, that kind of thing.
I’ll pass it on. Cheers for your helpPosted 6 years agoshoddybuggerMember
I bought a 2008 Merida 700 dfs ht. Got it on the cycletowork scheme, which is how i ended up with it! Wanted a Gt Avalanche but the merida is a Cracking piece of kit, fast, light yet solid. Would be nice to have a lock out as standard but it rides great. Not needed to do much to it, so rides well and lasts well. What’s not to like?Posted 6 years ago
