Merlin FF1 105 Mix Road Bike
Merlin FF1 105 Mix Road Bike, 11 speed 5800 drivechain The FF1 is an excellent step up from an entry level road bike. It has the performance to match its elegant and modern appearance. The triple butted frame and carbon fork give the FF1 a light, swift feel but without the harshness often found on bikes at this level. The clean classic lines of the frame show off the FF1's pared-down gimmick-free appeal. The FF1 can turn its hand to pretty much anything. It’s an adaptable bike with immense upgrade potential – morph it into a reliable tough-nut training bike or change it into a race-worthy steed. Or just keep it as a true all-rounder. It’s up to you. This Shimano 105 equipped FF1 offers slick 10 speed gearing with a wide range of ratios. The Fulcrum Racing 7 LG Wide wheelset is a real highlight on this bike. The 4ZA finishing kit are all dependable units that really sit well on this bike in terms of form as well as function. • 7005 series aluminium frame • Triple butted tubing • Replaceable gear hanger • Carbon blade forks with aluminium steerer • Shimano 105 11 speed drivetrain • Fulcrum Racing 7 LG Wide wheelset • 4ZA finishing kit Frame: Triple butted 7005 Series Aluminium Fork: Carbon blades with alloy steerer Wheels: Fulcrum Racing 7 LG Wide Tyres: Continental Ultra Sport II 25mm folding bead Chainset: Shimano 50/34T Front Derailleur: Shimano 105 5800 Rear Derailleur: Shimano 105 5800 Gear/Brake Levers: Shimano 105 5800 Brake callipers: Shimano Cassette: Shimano Handlebars: 4ZA Alloy Stem: 4ZA Alloy Seatpost: 4ZA Alloy Saddle: 4ZA Weight: 9.3 kg

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.
