Borrowing its design from REX1, the forged and CNC'd REX 2.2 for your double cranks are enhanced by proprietary Trinity Drilling System (TDS) triple drilling technology to yield the perfect weight-to-stiffness ratio. Rotor wanted to craft a mountain bike crank that could respond to whatever demands you throw at it. The REX 2.2 uses ROTOR's UBB30 technology, offering a performance upgrade opportunity for almost all mountain bikes on the market whether they were designed for 30mm cranks or not. Specification Axle: 30mm BCD: 110/60 Q-factor: 163mm chainline: 44.5mm Material: Aluminium 7075 CNC Compatibility Bottom Bracket: BSA, BB89, BB92, BB30, PF30 Supplied without chainrings.

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.
