  1. Nowadays we often associated trail and mountain biking fun with more and sophisticated full suspension travel as modern full suspension bikes become not just more capable on the way down but also easier to pedal and more efficient on the way up. Click here to view the article
  2. Hello all, I am looking at investing in a road bike with the idea to use it for the next decade, at least. I am weighing up two options, the Cannondale super six carbon (2015), 10-speed, which has american classic wheels, easton carbon handle bars and comes with a left-crank watt meter... compared to a Merida Scultura 4000 (2016), 11-speed, which has upgrades of campagnolo chorus parts. The Merida is about R3000 cheaper, when comparing both bikes as is. Any advice? I am waiting to hear whether a 52/36 crankset can fit the Merida, otherwise it will come with compact crank. Cannondale has a 52/36 already. Both bikes are second hand
  3. Press Release Originally launched in 2008, our World Cup and World Championships proven full suspension race bike has gone through a number of changes and alterations over the last decade, with probably the most significant departure from ‘the old’ coming together in the new NINETY-SIX (MY2021). We are very excited to present our take on modern XC, marathon and stage racing as well as lightweight short travel trail riding – welcome to the new NINETY-SIX – TRAIL AND TRACK AT FULL GAS.

  12. Hi, i am looking at purchasing a Merida road bike. I see there are 3 frame types : Ride, Scultura and Reacto. I use my road bike mainly for exercise and road events 50km to 100km range. There are some hills on all the routes but its not my forte. I tend to push myself for better / faster times on the same route, my best time always being my opponent. Why Merida you ask? Well its a question of what i can afford and of what Brands are currently available via my bike shop. Of the brands that there are stock left over in the country i decided to go with Merida. I had a 2007 Scott Elite CR1 upto this point with full shimano Tiagra. Now that you know a bit about what i want to use the bike for. Please help me pick the correct bike. I have the following on my short list. It simply comes down to which frame type suits my needs. - Merida Reacto 4000 - Merida Scultura 5000 - Merida Ride 7000 Of the 3 above i think the Reacto looks the coolest but i am not sure it is the correct choice for what i use my bike for. I am concerned that i will suffer on it on some of the hills that i do. Will also need to do the 2015 Argust on this bike. Awaiting your advise. Wayne

After the demise of the Multivan MERIDA Biking Team at the end of the 2016 season, Gunn-Rita has been working to continue cycling at the highest level.

  19. Hi there - quite new to the addictive MTB sport and looking at a decent entry level bike for around 5-6k. I have seen some decent well specced Titan Sports, Giant Revels and Axis A60's, but having difficulty on choosing. Is there a sort of ranking sheet i can refer to, lol? I am about 1.74m , weighing around 90kgs and looking for something smooth, strong and fast. I dont intend becoming an avid trail rider, but possibly looking at the light trails now and then. will propably do more Beach, recreational pavement riding. in addition, what do you reckon is my frame size? i would think medium based on the chart sizing guides. What are your thoughts?
  20. Hi, I have a Merida road race 901 and seem to be killing myself on the hills.. in first it feels as if the brakes are on when climbing. Is it me or the ratios on the bike? Can i change and if i can what will the best be to help me out? Im getting to a point where its not fun riding the bike anymore cause it feels as if the training does not even help with this issue. Hope someone can assist. Thanks Robin
  21. Hi all, I'm currently looking at buying a new entry level dual suspension MTB and would appreciate some advice on which would be best, or if there are any other suggestions that you would recommend. The bikes I'm considering buying are: 1. 2016 Giant Anthem X 29er at R30k (https://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-us/bikes/model/anthem.x.29er/22201/84034/#specifications) 2. 2017 Merida One Twenty XT at R33k (http://www.merida-bikes.com/en_int/bikes/full-suspension/trail/2017/one-twenty-xt-edition-6381.html) Edit: Another option is a 2016 Cannondale Rush 1 at R25k (http://www.treadmtb.co.za/bikes-cannondale-rush-29-1/) Thanks!
  22. Hi Guys I am a 23 year old girl, a bit overweight so I set a goal of completing my first Olympic style triathlon in November (the 5150). Only been training for a week - swimming in the morning before work and running when I don't have evening class (which is over weekends). Anyway, I need to buy a road bike. I am in no rush as I can train on a mountain bike in the mean time. I'll be going to a recycle sport shop tomorrow and will report back here In the mean time - what do you think about https://www.bikehub.co.za/classifieds/204788-merida-scultura-juliet-904-carbon-small/ I have been on gumtree as well: http://www.gumtree.co.za/a-sports-bicycles-fitness/port-elizabeth/fuji-altair-for-sale/1001757504980910412502409 http://www.gumtree.co.za/a-sports-bicycles-fitness/port-elizabeth/raleigh-tri6000/1001757164740910266163709 http://www.gumtree.co.za/a-sports-bicycles-fitness/port-elizabeth/road-bike-for-sale/1001699564350910444487609 Budget isn't really an issue but I'd prefer going second hand in case it's a one time thing (which I am hoping it's not) Thanks!
  23. Howzit. I have been looking at doing this conversion for a while now. I have a Merida Big99 XT-M Is there a reputable bike shop around Cape Town who can do a decent job? Would I have to change my rear hub for the conversion? Running Mavic Cross Ride atm with 3 - 10
