The Merida Speeder 100 is a flat-bar road bike with a performance focus and makes an excellent commuter or recreational bike. The Speeder 100’s frame is made from Racelite 61 Aluminium (6061) and is lighter and more advanced than previous years. Merida use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thickness to produce light and stiff frames. The frame geometry allows you to have a relaxed and upright riding position that is comfortable and gives you more control with less effort. The Speeder 100 has a full carbon fork for lightweight control and durability, dampening road vibrations more effectively than an alloy fork and working seamlessly with the frame to form a comfortable and efficient bike.
The flat-bar riding position is very comfortable, providing you with better visibility and control compared to the traditional drop-bar road bikes, particularly when riding a bit slower. The Speeder 100 is equipped with hydraulic disc brakes to give you reliable stopping power in any conditions, and a 24 speed Shimano drivetrain that will give you a very smooth ride. Maxxis Detonator 700x32c tyres will also help give you that smooth ride and make sure that you are comfortable.
The Merida Speeder 100 is a great bike for fitness, commuting and recreational riding. It has performance features, without the price tag. A quality alloy Merida frame combined with high-quality, reliable Shimano components and hydraulic disc brakes will give you confidence in your ride for years to come. For females the Merida Speeder 100 is one of the most comfortable flat bar road bikes on the market and great value at the same time.
