The Merida Speeder 200 Flat Bar Road Bike is a fitness machine designed for the rider that loves road bike efficiency but not the drop bars. The Speeder is a quality flat-bar road bike with its lightweight alloy frame and even better CF2 tapered carbon fork which gives you an incredibly smooth ride. The geometry of the Speeder puts you in an upright and comfortable position which is noticeably different to drop bar road bikes and is a great solution for the rider that wants that road bike style with added comfort. The 2x9 speed Shimano Sora Drivetrain has the range of gears for you to really test yourself and get fit, commute with speed or just glide up any climb. The 2x9 Sora groupset is the main upgrade over the 3x8 speed Acera drivetrain on the Speeder 100 and it is a worthy upgrade. On top of that it is equipped with Tektro M275 Hydraulic Disc Brakes which are reliable in all weather conditions, perfect for when you have to commute in the wet. The Merida Speeder 200 is action packed for fun and fitness on the pavement, commute like a pro or just relaxed with your mates on the Speeder 200.
Carbon Fork: Carbon forks provide superb vibration damping and precise steering. All road bikes feature a full carbon fork; the steerer and fork blades are all made of carbon.
X-Taper Headtube: Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.
Internal Cable: Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
