The Merida Big Nine 60 Hardtail Mountain Bike is an entry-level bike that can take you on your off-road adventures. The lightweight Big Nine Alloy frame comes with internally routed cables in 2021 to minimise maintenance and keep your bike looking clean. It runs a 2x9 speed Shimano Drivetrain which is more than capable when it comes to those hard climbs as it rolls with smooth efficiency and clean gear changes. The RockShox Judy TK Fork (46mm offset) with lockout and 100mm travel is right in the sweet spot for fun and adventure, enough to handle the rough stuff yet still gives you an agile ride. It wouldn't be the Big Nine without 29" Merida Wheels and 2.2x29" tyres for a quick and smooth ride. Ride with confidence, hitting every descent or turn hard thanks to the reliable Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes which give you unmatched control. The Merida Big Nine 60 Mountain Bike is a simple and efficient hardtail which has the capability to handle entry-level riders as they improve their skills.
- Internal Cable Routing: Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
- Racelite 61 Aluminium: We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.
- X-Taper Headtube: Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.
- TFS: Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with an internal metal core.
