KTM Lycan 272 Special Edition Custom Build Full Suspension Mountain Bike 2017
KTM Lycan 272 Special Edition Custom Build FS
The 2017 KTM Lycan is a new breed of trail bikes with new rear suspension system, the Straight Line Link (SSL) developed by KTM and the pioneering Boost technology, offer excellent small bump sensitivity whilst also effectively absorbing the larger hits and provide exceptional pedalling efficiency even on the roughest of terrain. The Boost technology with its 148mm wide rear hub gives a noticable stiffer rear wheel platform, and allows for shorter chainstays which means improved power transfer and handling even on the tightest of switchbacks!

About Merlin Cycles
This cycling deal was found at Merlin Cycles, one of the UK's most famous bike shops, located up North!
Merlin Cycles started life in 1993, founded by John Moss as a mail order Mountain Bike business ran directly from his spare bedroom in Chorley. Due to early growth, shortly afterwards he opened his first outlet in Ormskirk, and a few years later in 1998, the company grew into larger premises, moving to Leyland.
In the 1990's and early 2000's, Merlin were known for their ranges of mountain bike hardtails, released under the Rock Lobster and Merlin "Malt" brands. These steel and aluminium hardtails were designed in house, available as framesets or complete bikes, representing excellent value for money. The company was also well known for their handbuilt MTB wheels, which in my experience lasted for years without needing truing!
Merlin have always been competitive on pricing, particularly on suspension forks, brakes, wheels and groupsets, which continues to this day. Nowadays they have introduced road cycling equipment and clothing into their product ranges, due to the increase in popularity in this field, thus catering for a broader range of cyclists.
