    Summary

    Expirience with the Merida BIG.NINE XT

    Expirience with the BIG.NINE XT 2022 You prefer your bike to be used as a on sporty excursions? Then the Merida Hardtail and you could really hit it off. With 10,31 kg weight for the complete bike, the BIG.NINE XT joins the lighter bikes that you can buy for under under 3000 Euro. Most bikes in its class are heavier. The handling of this bike is balanced. So its pretty intuitive to control on singletrails. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the Merida Hardtail suite the taste of most bikers. With the frame, Merida supplies a very high quality Hardtail-chassis. Unfortunately, the remote lever on the handlebar controls only half of the suspension. For this, the shifting components are pretty much the best thing you can expect on a complete bike for 2599 Euro . With 25 years the warranty is another neat feature.
