Looking to buy an entry level road bike, budget £500. I have come across a bike Merida 77, £350 it appears a decent engough bike, Aluminium frame / carbon forks.

Intrested in anyone thoughts as I have not come across Merida before.

    Good value for money entry level bike. I bought the 75 last year and loved it. Now going to use it as my winter bike as I have been a bad lad and ordered a Trek Domane 4.3. You might find the stock seat a bit uncomfortable, I went and got a Specialized phenom comp saddle to put on it, made a lot of difference. More than happy with my merida done a lot of long rides on it last year. But be warned, its addictive, hence getting Trek. ( tempted to get higher spec Merida but Trek won out).

  • Thanks Trekie, really appreciate your thoughts. I own a Trek mountain mountain bike so understand why you decided to go with Trek.

    Merida are a top manufacturer who make bikes and rebadge for loads of big companies, i believe specialized is one of them. LBS near me sells them and he refuses to sell rubbish so must be pretty good.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
