The Merida Big Nine 7000 is a high-quality hardtail that combines aggressive agility with smooth stability to form an excellent modern XC bike. The CF3 Carbon frame is light, stiff and tough so that you can get the most of every ride, paired with a RockShox SID SL Fork (42mm offset) with 100mm travel and remote lockout. It is designed with Merida's race-proven geometry with a shorter top tube and a higher head tube for a slightly upright position that gives you improved visibility.

A great frame needs to be matched with a great groupset and the 1x12 speed Shimano XT drivetrain offers smooth shifting and the simple efficiency of the 1x is now standard on all good mountain bikes. This will give you the range of gears you need to tear up the trails on the Maxxis Ikon 29" tyres and high-quality Reynolds TR 249 Rims. The Shimano XT 2 piston hydraulic disc brakes give you the control you need with all of that easy speed, you can attack every corner and descent with confidence and unrivalled control. The 7000 is very similar to the Merida Big Nine 5000, only with an ungraded XT groupset, higher quality fork and rims for an altogether improved riding experience. The Merida Big Nine 7000 is built to go flat out all day with the speed and efficiency you want from your XC bike.

Modern Trail Geometry

Our carbon and LITE aluminium models feature a long 422 mm reach, steep 73.5° seat angle, slack 70° head angle and an 80 mm stem (BIG.NINE – M), affording the BIG.NINE next-generation XC geometry.

Dropper Post Ready

All models down to the BIG.NINE LITE frame level feature a 30.9 mm seat post, the enhanced connection area increases the strength around the top tube/seat tube join and allows the option of fitting a dropper seat post. 

Classic Hardtails

Hardtails are the backbone of our range and showcase the enormous wealth of experience and knowledge we were able to gain in 48 years. The BIG.NINE range symbolises the symbiosis between modern frame technology, attention to detail and craftsmanship.

About Merida

In September 1972, Ike Tseng (1932–2012) a brilliant engineer and visionary founded MERIDA. While visiting the USA, Ike saw a sign in a bike shop that stated refusal to repair any Taiwanese bikes, due to the unfavourable quality. As a result of this he set out to fulfil his dream of high quality bikes made in Taiwan and formed the MERIDA Industry Company Ltd.

The MERIDA name has three syllables Me-Ri-Da and it is the company’s intention to manufacture beautiful, high quality bikes that enables everyone to reach their destination enjoyably. MERIDA created a world-leading bike factory but Ike still wasn’t satisfied, so in 1988 the MERIDA brand was launched. Ike’s vision is still very much a part of MERIDA, manufacturing all kinds of bikes from children’s bikes to world-class professional road and mountain bikes for the Bahrain- MERIDA team riders. Everybody has a different journey, and everyone can benefit from a MERIDA.
