Merida Big Nine Carbon 3000 is a performance oriented 29er hardtail for serious mountain bike enthusiasts and racers. The Big Nine and its 29 inch wheel base offers a great balance of stability and ruggedness, without losing the agilility and handling for some fun on the trails. On race day the Big Nine really excels with its ability to cruise over obstacles with ease, larger wheel base for excellent traction and rolling, and longer rear stays and larger volume tyres for improved comfort (and reduced fatigue).
The lightweight carbon frame comes in a striking black and red colourway (our favourite here at 99), with smart matching detail on the Fulcrum wheels and Selle Italia saddle. The rear section of the bike provides excellent stiffness and acceleration, while still giving some vertical flex for improved comfort. Merida achieves this through a layer of bio flax fibres integrated into the rear stays which dramatically reduces vibrations through the bike, making you more comfortable and less fatigued. This same technology is used in Merida's widely acclaimed Pro Tour road bike, which outperformed bikes twice its price in comfort testing.
Shimano XT groupset offers the highest performance and reliability for shifting and braking in any conditions, with 100mm Fox Float forks that let you pick any line with plenty of confidence.
All specifications are subject to change without notice. To maintain quality, we insist that new bikes be collected from a store, they cannot be shipped after purchase.

Product : The actual bike I am happy with, only after taking the bike to another bike shop and paying these guys to check it over.. They were very surprised at how badly a carbon bike in this price bracket had been put together..
So for my first purchase and interaction with 99 bikes it was a very disappointing experience to be honest..!
