"Can you give me contact of Merida dealer in Mumbai? A friend wants to buy a road bike too in this price range and your description of Merida ride 100 fits the bill. The other bike he was considering is Fuji Sportif 1.3"

"I just wanted to add a bit more, if you are confused between two sizes, both of which suit you perfectly, do a bit more riding. If still the same result, choose the one with the smaller frame."

"Yes, true. I tried ride 100 for 2kms and it was gr8. As it was someone else's it was not a proper fit. I imagine with proper bike fit it will be even better. One thing is sure, I dont want race geometry. I would like to go for endurance type of…"

Which has tiagra all around.Is tiagra really worth spending 20k more as everything else is same. Bb set, crank and cassette might be different. But frame and geometry is same.See More
