MERIDA Mountain & Road Bikes
When Ike Tseng established the first Merida factory in Taiwan in 1972, he was not driven by ambition for success or wealth, but by a question of honour. While travelling through the USA, Tseng had come across a US bike shop which entrance sign stated unmistakably, that any repair of Taiwanese bikes was strictly refused there – due to the unacceptable quality of the latter. Defiantly, the then 40-year-old Tseng decided to change exactly that issue and founded a bike company with the objective to improve the quality of Far East bikes.
Today, Merida produces 3 million bikes at three locations and is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of quality bikes. The past 40 years of tradition and experience in the production of first-class bicycles represents close teamwork with the R&D department in Germany and co-operation with premium supplier’s right through to expert manufacturing. Each and every step taken to produce a Merida bike is performed at a premium level.
With over 80 bikes represented across multiple cycling disciplines Merida is sure to have a bike that suits your needs.
