We’ve been one of the world’s largest bike manufacturers for decades. Much has changed but we still make our bikes by hand with a little help from cutting edge technology where it offers advantages.
Ike Tseng, our founder, was determined to improve the reputation and quality of bikes made in Taiwan. This remains a key objective for his family, who continue to run Merida today.
The designs created by our skilled R&D team in Germany become prototypes which are hand built and welded in our factory in Taiwan. These are extensively tested and refined. Simultaneously, our design team work tirelessly on colours and graphics, creating the perfect look for the bike.
