Ready to hit the road? Raleigh's Merit 2 is the ideal mid-level endurance bike for century rides and long road rides. The Merit 2 will take you farther than ever without breaking the bank. Made for comfort and efficiency on long rides, the Merit 2 offers more responsiveness, great stopping power, and wider tires for stability.
Designed with a 6061 aluminum frame and custom tapered alloy fork, this bike is light and fast. The Shimano Claris 8spd STI shifters help flatten out any hill with 16 speeds to choose from. The mechanical disc brakes offer great stopping power in all weather conditions, and the Clement Strada LGG 60TPI, 700×28c tires provide great stability.

Really like this bike. Putting it together is easy enough around 45 minutes. I did an un boxing video on you tube https://youtu.be/L7iOvWT_LT0
I am 5 ft 9 and bought a large and it fits great. Bike rides great, gears shift great.
I ride for fun and not to race.(Posted on 6/18/2017)
