Merlin X2.0 105 11 Speed Alloy Cyclocross Bike - 2016 A double-butted aluminium frame with disc brakes and a carbon fork. A true go anywhere, do anything bike. Durable, versatile and fast, the Merlin CX 2.0 is likely to become your new favourite bike. Designed in Britain. Built in Belgium. The Merlin X2.0 is a lightweight and efficient all terrain blaster. It's capable of tearing around cyclocross race courses with its rapid responsiveness. It's exceptional at exploration too. Tarmac, gravel, grass, mud, hills, valleys… whatever. It'll go there. Frame and Fork Its sloping compact geometry makes for a confidence inspiring bike handling experience. You'll be nipping and tucking, bobbing and weaving with the best of them. The carbon bladed fork has been specced to keep things from becoming harsh up front. Carbon is a great material for reducing buzz and tremor. The alloy steerer is 1-1/8th too, further helping prevent any undue discomfort or excessive stiffness. Clearance There is plenty of tyre clearance in the frame and the fork. And with the use of disc brakes rather than mud-hugging cantilever brakes there'll be no issues with mud-plastered tyres spinning around. With full complement of mounts the bike is ready to sport mudguards and even a rear pannier so if you fancy making it into a fun commuting bike, you can. No problem. Disc Brakes The disc brakes are TYRP Spyre C brakes with a 160mm rotor up front and a 140mm rotor at the rear. Once you've tried disc brakes you won't ever want to go back to rim brakes ever again. As well as being more consistent and controllably powerful in all-weathers, disc brakes are much more fit-and-forget than cantilever cyclocross brakes. Easier to live with. Uncomplicated. Wheels The wheels are a particular highlight on the X2.0 - Fulcrum Racing Sport Disc shod in high quality Challenge Grifo Comp tyres. A bike's wheelset has a massive influence on how a bike rides and feels, so we've not skimped in this vital area. You could certainly make worse choices if you're after a bike that will more than hold it's own while racing, commuting, or just larking about in the local woods. As you'd expect from a bike of this price there's no fancy carbon frame, although you do get a carbon fork which does a great job reducing buzz while zipping over gravel tracks" - Cycling Weekly Specification Frame: Merlin CX 7005-T6 butted aluminium Fork: Merlin CX Disc Z - carbon legs, alloy steerer 1-1/8th Brakes: TRP Spyre Mechanical Disc Brake Caliper & Rotors Shifters: Shimano 105 5800 Shifters Front Derailleur: Shimano 105 FD-5800 Rear Derailleur: Shimano 105 RD-5800 Cassette: Shimano 105 CS-5800 11 Speed 11-28t Chain: KMC 11 Speed, 108L Chainset: FSA Gossamer 172.5mm 36/46t Wheels: Fulcrum Racing Sport CX Disc Tyres: Challenge Grifo Comp 700c x 32mm Saddle: 4ZA Stratos 7DD Stem: 4ZA Stem 100mm Handlebars: 4ZA Handlebars 42cm Seatpost: 4ZA Seatpost 350
