The 2016 Merida Speeder 200 combines road bike speed with an upright riding position for better handling and visibility on urban road. Whether you’re a commuter or weekend warrior the Speeder hybrid sports bike can do it all.
It’s on urban roads that the Speeder is most at home. It is the all-round city bike with a nimble frame and powerful disc brakes for easy snaking around potholes, parked cars other road furniture.
You can buy the highly versatile Merida Speeder 200 flat bar road bike through a Cycle to Work scheme for even better value.
Key to the ride feel is a strong, light and stiff aluminium frame. Extra weight has been shaved off the frame by a process called triple butting. All unnecessary frame material is removed from low stress areas. You get a lighter frame which is just as strong as a non-butted bike.
Extra attention to detail like smooth welds and internal cable routing give the Speeder a slick look. These aren’t features you find on all bikes at this price.
A tapered head tube up front increases stiffness for precision steering – ideal for dodging potholes at speed.
Equipped is a Shimano Sora 9 speed drivetrain with FSA road compact double chainset for super fast riding on city streets.
Tektro hydraulic disc brakes are powerful, reliable and consistent in all conditions so you can ride in confidence year round.
