    Merida mountainbikes, anyone?

    Hi guys!

    Just wanted to know if anyone else out there owns a Merida bike. I'm not sure if they're sold in the U.S., but I think they're available in Europe. If you own one, please share your experiences with the bike.

    (Merida website: www.merida-bikes.com )

    I got the Matts Champion LX model (frame only), with specs below:

    frame = Merida Matts Champion LX
    fork = Manitou Axel Elite 80mm
    stem/seatpost = Amoeba
    saddle = WTB Rocket V
    handlebars = Turbolite riser
    crankset = Shimano Deore (non-series) 44/32/22
    cassette = Shimano Deore 11-34
    shifters/brake levers = Shimano Deore Dual Control
    brakes = Avid BB7
    front der. = Shimano Deore LX
    rear der. = Shimano Deore LX low-normal
    rims = Mavic X221
    hubs = M.O.B. disc
    tires = Continental Twister 1.9 / Maxxis Larsen TT 2.0
    pedals = Specialized platform
    computer = CatEye Velo 1
    Ang sarap talagang magbisikleta!!!

    Merida bikes are among the best frames available in Europe. One of my LBS is a Merida authorized dealer and the bikes are great. I´ve ridden them and they are of very good quality.

    That's good to hear. The frames being sold here are relatively new to the market, so I haven't seen too many on my rides. Most bikers here build their bikes from frame up, though you can buy brands like Canondale and Giant (whole bikes), but they're somewhat expensive.
