Mountain Bike Parts
Mountain Bike Brakes There are two types of mountain bike brakes; disc and V brake. Disc systems offer better braking in all conditions but more expensive and slightly heavier. V brakes are lighter and cheaper but performance is not as good as discs. A wide range of spares are available for both types making servicing and replacement easier and cheaper. Merlin Cycles stock major mountain bike brake brands including Avid, Formula, Hayes, Hop, Magura and Shimano.
Mountain Bike Saddles & Seatposts Finding the right saddle is very important but the choice of seatpost can also affect comfort. Seatpost material, length and layback all play a part in determining comfort and as well as the saddle. Often overlooked, try and ride a bike without a seatpost collar and you’ll see how important they are. Merlin Cycles stock mountain bike saddles, seatposts and seatpost collars from major brands including, Easton, Hope, Fizik, Race Face, Ritchey, Rock Shox, SDG, Selle Italia and Thomson.
Mountain Bike Handlebars & Stems The handlebar and stem combination affects your riding comfort and control more than you think. Too long or too short a stem will have a massive effect while bar width and shape is also a determining factor. Type of bike and riding style will also contribute to bar and stem choice. Then there are the colour options... Merlin Cycles stock mountain bike handlebars and stems from major brands including Easton, Hope, Race Face, Ritchey and Thomson.
