any opinions about Merida crossway?

Hello, i am getting a bike for the city and I was about to buy TREk 7300 over Scott p4, but now I found this similar model, Merida Crossway 8 or even better, Crosway 100-D with disl brakes, but I canīt find any review or comments of these models to compare them with the Trek. Does anyone knows about these bikes? I have muy doubts about the adjustable Headset in Merida 100. If this a treal plus for a bike? I have seen cheaper models with this kind of headset, I think if you take it to the lower position, your hands will be to far away for this kind of bike, but I am not sure really, I am a newer

Thanks for your help

Well, Merida makes the frames for Specialized, so their frame quality will most likely be as good. That's a plus.


Not sure what you mean about adjustable headset, thought.

Thanks for your answer, you mean the frames will be as good as trekīs. Sorry about my bad explanation, I mean the kind of handlebars you can adjust the angle ,

best regards

I have a specialized sequoia with that type of adjustable headset. What is nice
about the headset it allows to adjust and you may find that you want to change
the angle . I did change mine a few times to find the optium position that I like
my hands at.
