Review: Big Trail 600 - Bikeboard.cc

A regular when it comes to testing our bikes, the test crew at Austria's Bikeboard.at website had a closer look at our new Big Trail 600 and published their findings on their Austrian as well as their international arm, Bikeboard.cc.

With their revised Big.Trail, Merida has really nailed it. Our world has become more and more complicated for years, and this trend has not stopped at mountain bikes. As cool as I think the latest generation of trail- and Enduro full suspension bikes is, only few of us won't cringe when looking at their price tag.That's why it's important to show that even beginners don't have to compromise on fun. Big.Trail is a bike for purists and all those who want to become one.

The bike's specs cannot be beaten, and the few weaknesses…may confidently be ignored. Some upgrading doesn't cost a fortune and is done quickly. For next season, I plan to optimise the bike's weight and will possibly go on one or two bikepacking tours with it. Because, of course, I bought this bike. Who can turn down such an opportunity after all?'

Fantastic feedback on our trail hardtail. To read the full review, please click here.
