We are all getting a little sick of this change of season fiasco, I personally can't wait until daylight savings has hit, the trails have dried and it's time for evening rides again.
In the meantime, remember you can still ride bikes fast in the wet, well some of us, well okay maybe just Danny...
We've have a demonstration model in this bike, and so far have been very impressed with the performance both up and down trail.
With a 1x11 SRAM drive train as stock and a price tag of $1500.oo this bike is a hard hitter for spec vs price.
The new One Twenty 7.800 has been in the store for awhile now and is gaining popularity with customers and the staff. Equipped with Fox Fork and Shock and sporting 1x11 Drivetrain this small travel bike feels like a much larger bike while still maintaining a playful feel inherent with the smaller travel platform.
So we received a 2017 model One-Sixty 7000 a couple of days ago, and must say this bike is shaping up to be one of the nicest bikes we've been able to offer to the public from the Merida range during my slightly over 10year stint of retailing Merida.
So many things are done well on this bike...
A carbon front triangle, paired with an alloy swingarm makes for a superbike feel, without that niggly "better check my swingarm for cracks" when you get through the first season of sending this monster down everything you could.
1x11 Drivetrain is totally a given on this type of bike now, and the speclist leaves little to be overturned. Check it out full specs here.
