2017 Merlin ROC Road Bike
The Merlin ROC is our best ever aluminium road bike; with aluminium enjoying somewhat of a resurgence over the last few seasons we recognized the benefits of a simple, lightweight, modern alloy frame. Triple butted with slender rear stays, an elegantly triangulated top tube and a tapered head tube up front the ROC really is testament to the amazing yet affordable things that can be done with aluminium these days. The versatile ROC road bike is like two different bikes in one neat package. Capable of providing you with long, comfortable miles in the saddle but stiff and responsive enough to encourage you to get out of the saddle and sprint for the finish line of your local mid-week crit race. Features The Merlin ROC road bike features a lightweight triple-butted Hydroformed 7005 series aluminium frame and a carbon fork along with a full Shimano 105 11 speed groupset to provide dependable, precise shifting and powerful, confidence inspiring braking. We have completed the bike's specification with a pair of Fulcrum Sport wheels and Deda components.

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.
