    Summary

    Expirience with the Merida BIG.TRAIL 500

    Expirience with the BIG.TRAIL 500 2022 With the BIG.TRAIL 500 , Merida enables access to extreme trails for relatively little money. When it comes down to handling, Merida does not compromise. With its balanced handling style, the Merida BIG.TRAIL 500 is ready for the majority of singletrails. The relatively high front allows you to sit upright in the saddle. The way to the summit is not one of the strengths of this bike. Another strong argument needs to be mentioned: the coherent geometry and the grippy tires will make you smile all the way to the bottom of the descent. With 25 years the warranty is another neat feature. Caution when selecting the size: the frame .
