I went bicycle shopping recently and picked up a Merida MTA-510 for my daily ride from Jhongsing Village to my job in Caotun [about twenty minutes one-way]. I checked out a Merida dealership and a Giant dealership during my search. The Giant dealership didn’t sell a single similarly priced bike with 19 inch wheels, so the choice was pretty simple.
So far, I have been blessed with wonderful weather on my journey to and from work. Once summer hits, I am sure the commute will be much less enjoyable.
