    Merida front wheel damage

    I bought last week a MTB Merida Big Nine TFS 500 and unfortunately I had a car accident, the front wheel (rim: Merida Big Nine pro D) is damage and needs to be replace with a new one. In this case what should I do, try to find a supplier for merida parts (very very hard to find), change the rims (also very hard) or change the wheels. I hope that someone will help me!

    Depends on the damage. You wouldn't want to replace the rim only to find the integrity of the spokes is compromised. If you hit the car / car hit you hard enough to damage the wheel I would buy a new wheel. If your claiming against someone elses insurance I would get a pair of something else.
    Hope you're ok

    If you want to get riding again quickly, get a front wheel. It doesn't need to match. Pretty much any MTB front wheel will work.

    So long as it's compatible with the axle mounting system of the fork.
