The Review
is a best entry for beginner.
as this is a affordable bike with carbon frameset and partial Ultegra groupset.
the bike is solid and having a life time warranty.

Basically Merida made Specialized and Sworks so if you think Swork is great, I would say the maker of it will made the same brand the same standard.

 MIT-V8 2015 MIT-V8

" Compact fold "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 12th Jun 2017 from Singapore

The Review
basically I believe due to our current homes are normally small and space constrain, a compact folding bike will be good as it can be easily kept away and hide.

talking about folding bike many will think of the famous branding Brompton as it live up to their name of compact and easy ride.
however, a MIT folding bike share the same type of folding which is compact and the gearing is using the standard type that we can see nowadays in road or mountain bike. which is less costly and easiler to upgrade. therefore I find there is no restriction to this bike upgrade of servicing and I would give it a good grade. as most bicycle shop will be able to do this bicycle than some brand need only going back to them.

" one hubs that last "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 21st Feb 2017 from Singapore

The Review
basically a brand that all cyclist will have heard off.
a brand that is been around for so long and live up to it brand.
despite the weight is not the lightest but performance does not lost out to the rest of hubs in the market.
the engagement is a thing that never doubt off as long as u pedal it will roll at lowest power lost transfer.
and the gap between each engagement is right compare to the rest with a lapse of gap before next engagement the in-between power transfer gone to waste.
