2016 Ridley X Ride 105 Disc CX Bike
The X-Ride, made of 7005-T6 alloy, sports a slightly more relaxed cyclocross geometry which increases its versatility. Delivering the same modern technologies used to design the X-Night, it'll enthusiastically tackle a full cyclocross season with you, but as it is not a pure cx race machine, it is also perfectly suited for long commutes or to serve as your winter training bike. Go ahead and take it on your local mountain bike trails for a bit of technical fun. The X-Ride can handle it all, its internal cable routing keeps cables clean and easy to maintain. Compatible with mechanical shifting only. With the incorporation of disc brakes, the X-Ride Disc is that bit more versatile. No matter the weather conditions, you'll always be in control of your speed. This especially comes in handy when taking on slippery mud descents where expert speed modulation is required. It can also be key in your rainy commute where you may need to come to a full stop in a split second.

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.
