Expirience with the Merida BIG.NINE XT2

Merida BIG.NINE XT2 Review When riding it as a on long tours, the Merida BIG.NINE XT2 really comes into its own. Merida is taking no risks when it comes to its bike handling. The moderate geometry data conveys a balanced handling. If you are already a little older, your back will love the comfortabel seating position of the BIG.NINE XT2. On the downhill, however, the BIG.NINE XT2 is left in the dust by its competitors. For this, the shifting components are pretty much the best thing you can expect on a complete bike for 1549 Euro . We like: 25 years warranty on the frame! Check the size chart exactly before buying: the Merida BIG.NINE XT2 sizing runs small.
