Merida Crossway 20D 2020 Review

Merida is a Taiwanese Bicycle manufacturer with engineering build and design from Germany. Merida has grown over the years to become one of the top Bicycle brands with its presence in major Bicycle races around the world. Merida was one of the earliest International brands to bring in their 2020 range to India. We got the opportunity to test ride the Merida Crossway 20D (2020) and here is what we thought.

Weight: 14.4 kgs

Usage: Fitness/Commute

Things We Don't Like

  • Tourney/Acera derailleurs could have been upgraded to Altus/Acera at this price
  • Internal cable routing would have enhanced the aesthetics of this bicycle even further
Merida Crossway 20D 2020 Frame

The Merida Crossway 20D (2020) comes with a lightweight 6061 Aluminium frame. This frame is built using the Techno Forming System or TFS. This system helps maintain a low weight while providing good strength. This system also allows for innovative shapes in the frame, which helps keep the geometry required in balance, thanks to the top notch moulding process. The geometry has the perfect blend of aggressiveness and comfort.

The SR Suntour NEX HLO front suspension fork comes with a minimal yet smooth 63mm travel. The suspension lockout was easy to use and useful to make the fork rigid for added comfort on flatter roads.

Merida Crossway 20D 2020 Design

The Crossway 20D which I test rode came in a full Silk Titan Silver frame with Black and Grey as the secondary colours for graphics and text. The slightly curved top tube along with the thin seat and chain stays made the Bicycle look aero. The matte finish paint job was of top notch quality and enhanced the colour shade immensely. Internal cable routing would have enhanced the aesthetics of this bicycle even further.

Merida Crossway 20D 2020 Gearing

The Crossway 20D (2020) comes with Shimano Tourney at the front and Acera at the rear as derailleurs. These mid-level Shimano hybrid derailleurs worked smoothly during the test ride on rough urban roads when riding over traffic and on flyovers. Both the front and rear derailleurs shifted quickly and without any lag. The 24-Speed drivetrain gave a wide range for efficient climbs and quick acceleration.

Merida Crossway 20D 2020 Brakes and Steering

Shimano’s ST-EF505 Hydraulic Disc brakes handle the braking performance on the Merida Crossway 20D. These brakes were powerful and had a fast response time when sudden braking in traffic and even on fast turns. Hydraulic Disc brakes from Shimano are considered to be one of the best and were top notch in performance and well up to our expectation on a Hybrid Bicycle at this price.

The Merida Comp handlebar was 660mm in length and had a slight 30 degree raise from the middle to give a comfortable riding posture. The adjustable raiser stem is useful in making the rider comfortable or aggressive.

Merida Crossway 20D 2020 Wheels and Saddle

The Crossway 20D 2020 comes with Kenda 700x40c with Merida stock Alex rims. These tires have an impressive tread pattern to give good traction on urban roads. The wheel set on the whole was lightweight and contributed to keeping the weight of the bicycle in check.

The Cross Sport saddle on this bicycle was ergonomically designed making the sit bones placed on the widest points of the saddle and thus making it comfortable during long rides on bumpy surfaces. The suspension seat post took vibrations of the surface and made the ride smoother on bad roads.

This is a Performance Hybrid Bicycle packed with high end components. The suspension lockout along with smooth gears and fast rolling tires make for a comfortable ride amidst traffic on both smooth and rough roads. If you are someone looking for a performance packed Hybrid Bicycle then the Merida Crossway 20D (2020) is a top choice to consider.
