after going through loads and loads of reviews, articles, forums...I bought my first bike Merida Matt Series 40 V. I had almost decided for Trek 3500 as tht was a decent bike within my budget (20 K). But then I came across Merida Bikes and the dealer offered me flat 25 % off..only reason was tht he is the sole distributor in this region. It is then I opted for Merida Matt 40 V. The orignal Price of this bike is 28,500 but i got it for 20,500 after discount. I believe it is a good deal. Below are the specifications....
