Crossway is your choice if you are an experienced cyclist or just an athletic person who likes a challenging ride: A 24-gear Shimano-Deore ATB for road and forest trips.  Its adjustable shock-absorbing suspension means it is perfect for more challenging terrains, but also able to reach optimal speeds when the ride is smoother.  It is the choice most often chosen for off-road routes and longer-distance travel.

CROSSWAY
THE TRAILBLAZING HYBRID FOR SPORTY LEISURE TIME.

Who doesn’t want to actively design their leisure time without having to plan it in a big way? Simply spending a few hours away from all your obligations and duties, doing what you like best: sitting relaxed on a comfy bicycle and letting the fresh air blow in your face far away from the hustle and bustle of the city… For everyone who does not let their bike dictate where they like to go, MERIDA provides the CROSSWAY hybrid family, the perfect 700c all-rounder for many occasions.

A hybrid bicycle, and especially the MERIDA CROSSWAY, stands for a literal cross of many positive qualities. Above all, the practical, robustly designed, yet lightweight aluminum frame plays an important role in the recreational character of the CROSSWAY. And the 2016 models have received a significant upgrade: thanks to the new, restyled top tube and the new head tube, all CROSSWAY models not only look even better, but it was also possible to increase the stiffness of the head tube, and thus the precision of braking and steering. As a result, the heart of your versatile travelling partner beats even stronger and has equipment that is more than merely adequate: thanks to its suspension forks and moderately profiled, smoothly rolling tires, the CROSSWAY makes use of its trailblazing qualities paved as well as unpaved roads, and it provides maximum comfort and safety at all times. Ergonomic saddles, handlebars and controls add to the joy on a CROSSWAY. Since fenders, a kickstand, and/or a bike rack can be attached (depending on model version), the 2016 CROSSWAY fears neither its role as a daily driver nor adverse weather conditions.

 

Configuration: 24/27 gears, mud guards, bottle cage, luggage carrier, lights (battery or generator operated), 28“ wheels

Available frame size(s): male and/or female frames: 51 cm (for body sizes from 170 cm), 50 cm (for body sizes from 175 cm), male frames: 55 cm (for body sizes from 175 cm), 60 cm (for body sizes from 180 cm)

Veronika Kulikauskienė

Grown up in Canada, Veronika is a native English speaker with Lithuanian roots.

She really loves Vilnius, it’s “her city”, and – without any doubt the most beautiful city in the world (just to make this clear)

Though Veronika has a very deep in the history of Vilnius her biggest interest is the religious side, the city’s 40 churches, the numerous nominations and the Jewish side (maybe her family line goes back to one brother of the Gaon himself).

Meet the legends of the city with the legendary Veronika!

What she likes:

  • Talk to people;
  • Questions;
  • religious people;
  • the lunch break and the traditional Lithuanian cold red beetroot soup … ;
  • tbc

What she doesn’t like:

  • very hot days;
  • people in a hurry
