Merida Big Trail 900 650b Mountain Bike 2017 – Hardtail MTB



Ready to shred the trails. The Merida Big Trail 900 is a hardtail mountain bike, with plus sized wheels and a long travel fork that offers a more confident ride on technical trails.

The lightweight aluminium alloy frame features dialled trail MTB geometry with 130mm of suspension travel up front. The slack head angle is combined with a longer top tube and short stem to offer a stable, confident ride on the descents while still getting you to the top of the climbs efficiently.

Plus sized B+ (27.5”+) wheels with 2.8” wide tyres offer extra ‘float’ which means you get a bit more cushioning over roots and rocks as well as extra grip. The RockShox Pike RC fork up front offers refined suspension performance for soaking up the big hits on the trail.

The SRAM XO1/X1 11 speed ‘one by’ drivetrain offers slick, secure shifting over a wide range of gears as well as silent running over rough terrain. The SRAM Guide brakes offer confident all-condition stopping power while the dropper post means you don’t need to miss a beat when the gradient changes.

‘…It’s playful and very competent to ride, making full use of the advantages of bigger tyres. This is a very comfortable hardtail which itself is very comfortable on every type of terrain and a great all- rounder’. –
