    Summary

    Expirience with the Merida BIG.NINE XT

    Merida BIG.NINE XT Review With fresh geometry and a lightweight frame, the BIG.NINE XT wants to continue the rumor of days gone by. Over six years, the predecessor was on the market and had accordingly accumulated dust. The current Big 9 therefore has an easy game on this point. On the scale, the Racebike von Merida with 10,2 kg looks good. Most Racebike in the price range until under 3000 Euro are heavier. The trend towards more high speed stability geometries stops with Merida. Good! Because with this balanced handling model, you are equipped for all situations on the trail. The seating position is sporty. Despite this criticism, the coherent overall concept makes the Merida BIG.NINE XT to on sporty excursions a buying recommendation in the price range 2999 Euro range. With 25 years the warranty is another neat feature.
