Merida Speeder 100 2019 Frame

The Merida Speeder 100 (2019) is built using a Speeder Lite Alloy frame. This frame at first glance looks a bit aggressive in geometry and this is because this bicycle is a flat-bar/fitness Road Bicycle with an Endurance Road Bike geometry for a good mix of stability and comfort. Flat bar Road Bikes are Road Bicycles with flat handlebars replacing the drop handlebars. Merida’s Pro Lite triple butted frames claim to offer an optimum Stiffness-to-Weight (STW) ratio which was evident during the ride.

The CF2 Carbon bladed rigid fork helps in keeping the front part of the bicycle lightweight.

Merida Speeder 100 2019 Design

The bicycle which I test rode came in a full Black matte finish with Yellow/Grey graphics. The sleek top tube and thin seat stays make this bicycle look sleek. This flat handlebar and bladed fork gave it an aggressive look similar to a Road Bicycle. The graphics on the top tube and fork were elegant and aesthetic.

Merida Speeder 100 2019 Gearing

The Speeder 100’s drivetrain is equipped with Shimano’s Tourney at the front and Shimano Acera-X at the rear which worked smoothly during the test ride. The gears shifted down and up quickly and without any lag and helped accelerate on flat roads with ease. The Shimano ST-EF50 trigger shifters were easy to operate.

Merida Speeder 100 2019 Brakes and Steering

The Speeder 100 (2019) is equipped with Shimano MT-200 Hydraulic Disc brakes which are powerful and provided quick and balanced stopping power on both dry and wet roads.

The Merida Comp TK handlebar on this bicycle is 600mm in length which was flat with no raise. This made the riding posture a bit aggressive for efficient riding.

Merida Speeder 100 2019 Wheels and Saddle

The Merida Speeder 100 (2019) comes with a pair of Maxxis Detonator 700x32C slick tires. Getting up to speed and maneuvering through traffic was easier with these tires which also has a useful puncture protection layer.

The Merida Comp Saddle was incredibly comfortable for me with sufficient padding and the perfect width for a comfortable and soreness free ride.

This is a Hybrid Bicycle with a lightweight Alloy frame and an even lighter rigid carbon fork. The Tourney/Acera 24-Speed gears were smooth in shifting and the Shimano Hydraulic Disc brakes were powerful. The tires were fast rolling and had a good tread pattern which made it possible to ride over bumpy and rough roads as well. Priced at Rs.51,990 (as on 16th December 2019) the Merida Speeder 100 (2019) is an ideal choice for anyone looking to buy a Hybrid Bicycle for fitness and commuting needs.
