Rotor R-Raptor Crank Arms
The R-Raptor checks all the standard boxes for an all-mountain/enduro crank. Like Rotor's REX cranks, the R-Raptor is a work of engineering built on the principles of lightweight and rigid, but R-Raptor's modular concept offers compatibility that meets and even exceeds current trends in mountain bike technology. Crank arms will be available independent of an axle and chainrings; there's no longer a factory-assembled arm+axle, both crank arms can be removed from the axle. This way the R-Raptor can be mounted to standard, boost, and downhill axles. Rubber bumpers protect crank arms against wear. Direct Mount chainrings for the R-Raptor feature Rotor's patented Optimum Chainring Position (OCP) system to optimize your pedal stroke. Swapping out chainrings on the fly becomes incredibly easy with just an 8 mm allen key.

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.
