Silverback Mercury 2


Recommended Posts

Very good value for money, especially with the Reba Fork, for 12k you can't go wrong.


These bikes are pretty heavy, so don't expect a frame weight similar to a scott alu frame.



The only part I would want to upgrade is the wheelset, but to start off with something that is UST ready is already awesome.


Appart from the wheel set, you will get thousands of k's out of that bike with no hassles of any sort.


Brakes is also easy to maintain.


Also nothing wrong with SLX if maintained properly. I would also suggest switching the shifter cables to one of those teflon coated sealed systems, would help those shifters to become a bit lighter on the thumbs.


I say go for it!

I will second that. Go for it.

I have the 2010 Mercury1 and I am enjoying every second on the bike.
