Merida 2017 Ride 100 Alloy With Full Carbon Fork 52cm
The Merida Ride 100 is a capable endurance road bike (ideal for sportives), designed to offer efficiency and comfort over long distances.
At the heart of the Ride road bike is a lightweight, stiff and strong aluminium frame with butted tube walls to shave extra weight off the frame. Flex Stays are designed to offer vertical compliance to soak up vibrations while staying laterally rigid for efficient power transfer.
Geometry is optimised for endurance road cycling with a slightly shorter top tube and longer headtube that create a more comfortable upright riding position so you stay fresher for longer, whilst still offering road bike speed.
Upfront a carbon fork, matched to a tapered steerer improve steering precision while the carbon absorbs extra road shock. The Ride 100 road bike comes with a reliable Shimano Claris 3x8 speed drivetrain with a wide range of gear options so you can take on varied terrain with confidence.
