Sportful began life in 1972 in Asolo Italy, when Giordano Cremonese took advantage of his family's background in textiles and began making his own ski wear. The garments were based upon his own designs, and were labelled with the Sportful logo; they quickly gained attention from fellow skiers, and consequently in 1973 the company began trading. Having developed a reputation for creating performance skiwear, in 1985 Sportful moved into the cycling sector, initially sponsoring the Ceramiche Ariostea, Maglificio Bianchi and Mapei trade teams, and later the Italian National team, to great success. To this day Sportful still produce high end road cycling clothing, which is highly regarded by professionals and keen amateurs alike.

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.
