    New question here. Merida 140 5b - can people who own it please recommed/warn?

    Hi guys, it's my first post here.
    I currently ride a 26" Trek Fuel ex5 bikes, which I truly love, but, they are getting a little old, maintenance is becoming costly, and to be honest, I am curious about the 27.5" wheels.

    I ride a lot of millage on easy (nearly smooth) trail, and I appreciate ability to pick decent speed, I usually do 70-100KM a week on smooth dirt trail.

    On weekends I do AM type riding, borderline enduru, but nothing too extreme. I've been reading reviews, watching some vids etc. and the Merida one forty 5B seem like a great deal for my budget.

    Full specs: Full Suspension - All Mountain - One-Forty 5-B - Merida Bikes International

    Assuming this is my only option, i.e. please don't tell me get some other bike etc. Just a yes/no kind of deal....

    From your experience and what I just described, would you recommend these bikes?

    Thanks a lot.

    A bit old, but did you end up getting it? I'm about to pick mine up in a couple of weeks. Keen to hear your thoughts if you did.
