Merida Road 880
The riding position is commanding and relatively comfortable rather than head down fast. The neutral stance is perfectly suited to the relative beginner riders the bike is aimed at and is ideal for training and long-distance commutes.
The fork delivers precise steering and is stiff but a little harsh; this causes a bit of bone-shaking when the front wheel runs over a long section of rough road.
This piece has been fully torn apart and given new brake pads and a chain. Rides better than ever! Looking to try out riding a road bike? This one won't break the bank!
