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.
