Merida Big Nine 5000

Merida Big Nine 5000

  • £1,800.00


For 2019, carbon and premium aluminium frames are 29” wheel only, reflecting sales and the ethos “for speed you need big wheels and light weight”. 

Geometry is competition focussed with a sharp, responsive ride. Key highlights; long reach, steep seat angle, slack head angle and low front end. A 30.9mm seat tube for internal cable dropper seat post allows for later upgrades. 

The heart of the bike is the frame and this one has a less demanding carbon lay-up than the CF5. Aero profiled downtube, leaf spring profiled seat and chainstays for maximum comfort. Boost axles standard and tapered headtube for stiffness and steering precision. Smart Entry cable system for rattle free running. 1,290g – M +/- 3%
