Merlin Ignite Disc Road Frame
The Merlin Ignite is our new lightweight, disc-brake-specific carbon road frameset featuring thru-axles, disc brake flat-mounts and a balanced geometry designed specifically to excel in long-distance events such as Sportifs and Gran Fondos or your regular day-long club runs. For longer rides you need a bike that's light, reliable and most of all comfortable. With a slightly longer wheelbase and a front fork with a more relaxed angle you'll enjoy a stable, predictable ride with none of the nervous, skittish feelings that can sometimes be associated with an out-and-out race bike. At crucial points in the Ignite frame more forgiving flex points have been cleverly engineered into the carbon layup to absorb vibrations and shocks increasing comfort even during long hours on rough road surfaces. Whether you're aiming to improve a personal-best time in your biggest cycling event of the year or are simply looking for a way to enjoy your weekly club runs in more comfort, leaving you fresher for that well-earned cafe stop, the stunning Merlin Ignite will help you achieve your goals in style.

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.
