Merida Bikes has engineered a cyclocross bike, the 2011 Cyclo Cross CF 907, that aims to address the demands of the sport. The ‘cross bike features several technologies from Merida’s Research and Development team to ensure a winning ‘cross bike.
The CF 907 features a 1.5 tapered headtube and a BB30 bottom bracket, which helps in reducing the brake stutter commonly experienced in cyclocross. The upper fork section between the crown and brake bosses is made super stiff. However, the fork ends remain soft for easy steering. Made from carbon composite materials, the CF 907 has a carbon fork with a frame reinforced with NANO particles, making it hit-resistant.
To keep all the cabling in place, all rearward cables use a designated tunnel found at the underside of the top tube. The seat and chainstays are specifically designed with Merida’s Flex Stay tech to make vibration damping and comfort a priority.
Colors available are UD carbon red/white for this full carbon machine with four sizes to pick from. The 2011 Merida Cyclo Cross CF 907 comes with Shimano Ultegra shifters and components and Tektro brakes.
