Size Chart

Almost every manufacturer has a size calculator for its bikes online. Nevertheless, we take a look at the geometry of each bike, completely detached from the recommendation of the manufacturer. Why: We want to give you an absolutely objective assessment of the frame size that suits you. We calculate with statistical averages for the ratio of leg length and height. If you want to know exactly what size you need, you should read this blog post from us. Here we explain how you can measure your leg length in less than 5 minutes and then determine your perfect frame size.

How Do We Review Bikes

With all the info we give you here about the bikes, you’re probably wondering: are these guys credible at all? That’s why we’ve prepared an article for you that explains exactly who is behind this website and what our mission is. 

At BIKE-TEST.COM we rate bikes as objectively as possible. Our innovative rating system has three groundbreaking advantages over all other product tests you can find on the internet:

  1. We catalog and rate bikes on over 200 criteria. No one else takes such a comprehensive look at a bike. Our revolutionary data processing allows us to break down the complete experience of over 100,000 kilometers in the saddle to each individual bike.
  2. We treat every bike exactly the same, no matter which manufacturer it comes from. You won’t get a more objective statement about mountain bikes anywhere.
  3. It’s free!

Here we explain in detail how we rate bikes. The short version: We evaluate each individual part in its quality and compare whether the individual part fits the respective area of use of the bike. In addition, we also check the geometry of a bike and draw conclusions about how this bike rides. If a bike has earned a BIKE-TEST.COM TIP, it has not only a particularly good equipment, but usually also an excellent geometry.

About The Brand

“Merida’s core competence lies in the production of high-quality frames. Especially in the hardtail sector, you should consider the Taiwanese when making a purchase decision. The Big Nine and Big Seven models are characterized by an extremely good price-performance ratio.”

This is what BRAND is famous for:

Merida is one of the big players in the mountain bike business. Similar to Giant, Merida not only produces frames for itself, but also manufactures on behalf of many other brands. The Taiwanese have a lot of know-how when it comes to the production of carbon or aluminum frames. For the development of mountain bikes, Merida maintains a development site in Stuttgart, where engineers and product managers take care of the details of the bikes for Europe. Like all brands that are strongly influenced by the German market, Merida is also characterized by an extremely good price-performance ratio. The Big Nine and Big Seven hardtails in particular are extremely popular due to their good features and are often the right choice when young people want to gain their first experience in competitive sport. The lifetime warranty that Merida grants on all its frames is proof that the Taiwanese stand fully behind their product. With 360 dealers in Germany, there is relatively good regional coverage with service stations. Merida bikes usually have an inconspicuous design and are always functional, always extremely precisely processed and do without technical gimmicks.
