Superbly built. Light rims and superb, smooth running hubs. (Deore xt)
Great value and feel very good on a cross country ride. Well worth going for these! Very happy!

I have no hesitation in recommending this product. I ordered the XT hubs with black spokes and black mavic 319 rims. The wheels are nice and light and very strong. These wheels were an upgrade from my standard wheels I got with my Kona mountain bike. The order was processed amazingly good. I was given tracking and a window with the drivers name and time he would be at my house. It all came packed well and quicker than I expected. Second to none in customer service and the wheels are sooooooo lovely. I will 100 per cent use Merlin for all my cycling needs.

Got these to replace existing non disc wheels fitted to a 20 year old GT Avalanche. Wheels were true and well built. I am sure these wheels will last me another 20 years.

**** on 19/02/2015

Good quality wheels at an excellent price. I use them on my commuting bike and have done over 100 miles on them and they're dead true and I'm no lightweight. I had a back wheel, same as these, and it lasted well despite year-round commuting in Orkney, a test of any component.

***** on 17/02/2015

I've found it extremely difficult to keep my old school v-brake Trek on the road so these wheels from Merlin were manna from heaven when I discovered problems with my original wheels. Excellent prices, good options (went for the XT hubs since these are weatherproofed and slightly lighter) and well built. Have used on my 10 mile commute for several weeks now and the wheels are running straight and true. A bargain!

***** on 14/01/2015

Cracking set of wheels, built true and straight, couldn't ask for more and a reasonable price, upgraded to LX hubs for slightly better quality, recommended wheels for non disk specific requirements +++++++++++++

***** on 06/09/2014

I am very satisfied with the wheels from Merlin. I could not see any fault or shoddy craftsmanship. The wheels are nicely centred and spun smoothly without any "gravelling". My one concern had been the thickness of the rear axle but even though it turned out to be thicker than I had hoped for the rear wheel still slid in without requiring a great deal of persuasion. I am pleased I went for something a bit more expensive because the retro restoration looks sharp and is pleasing to the eye and of course the bike runs like a thoroughbred. So would use Merlin again and happy to recommend to others. Thank you.

**** on 23/07/2014

A fantastic pair of wheels. I had the brushed steel LX hubs with black spokes and the black rim. My red Hope quick release skewers look great and further complimented with Maxxis 2.1 tyres. The wheels are strong, true and reasonably quick. My bike purrs along. So no issues or concerns yet. Merlin great as with the 29ers and 650B's. The 26" will be a thing of the past or positioned for low end bikes. So keep up the good work.

***** on 16/06/2014

A brilliant set of wheels at a reasonable price. I brought these to replace my 10 year old Deore hubbed Mavic rimmed wheels and these are just the trick a bit lighter as well which is always good.

***** on 20/05/2014

I've used Mavic's X717 wheels with Shimano XT hubs in the past and they have been excellent. The quality of the handbuilt wheels from Merlin seem excellent and should give many miles of cycling.

***** on 10/04/2014

Excellent service, delivery very quick. I got the Mavic 317 rims with LX hubs. So far so good. fitted to 2006 GT Avalanche 1.0 MTB after previous rear rim wore through & split after 6k miles. Been on a few fast very bumpy off road trips and wheels are still smooth & running true. Impressed so far. Recommended!

***** on 21/03/2014

I ordered these with Hope hub option and these are an excellent set of wheels. Very well built and true.

***** on 01/03/2014

Excellent set of wheels. Perfectly true and straight. All spokes evenly tensioned. I've always been impressed with the service from Merlin and prices are unbeatable

***** on 13/02/2014

Best pair of wheels I have ever purchased. 18 months old and still true after many miles. Built to last. Excellent service from Merlin, they even sent me some spare spokes (I wanted spares to take on trip) for completely free!

***** on 20/10/2013

Great Wheels! (Mavic XM317 silver rims and upgrade to XT hubs)
I bought this for my 20-year-old Cannondale MTB.
Nowadays, It is difficult to find high quality Non-disc-wheels, but Merlin supplies us a great wheels at a reasonable price.
Compared to my old wheels; handbuilt with Araya RM-17 and Deore XT 7Speed Hubs, this wheel has much stiffnes and smoothness.
So I can ride my Cannondale faster than ever!
I really recommend this wheel for old MTB users.
I hope I can ride my lovely Cannondale for another 20 years!
Thanks Merlin.

***** on 19/07/2013

Very well built. Lovely combination of mavic XM and deore xt. Done 100 miles and still running quiet and true. See how it stands up to a heavy 100kg+ rider.

***** on 19/07/2013

Excellent very pleased with the wheels and they are so much lighter than my old ones :)

***** on 20/06/2013

Needed to replace the wheels on my retro build Kona, went for LX hubs with Mavic 317 rims. The build quality is second to none, they run really true, they were packaged really well and came within the week. Really pleased with them.

***** on 15/06/2013

Got these wheels built for a converted mtb/ tourer. Mavic rims with hope hubs. Only been fitted for 2 weeks so hard to say how they will stand up to a lot of touring, the only point I can make is they look and feel top quality but the noise from the rear hub takes a bit of getting used to.

***** on 09/05/2013

Absolutely brilliant. Wheelset came all the way to Australia quickly. Quality was excellent. No spokes pinging. Wheels perfectly true. Will definately buy again from Merlin with no hesitation.

***** on 20/03/2013

Excellent build quality at a very affordable price and lightning fast delivery. As always a pleasure to do business with.

***** on 24/02/2013

I needed decent wheels for an old v-brake only bike, and didn't want to buy disc hubs or high-end wheels beyond what made sense for the bike These were just the thing and I am very satisfied with them. They look nice, arrived true, roll smoothly, and are working great. The spokes are the classic round type, which was not obvious during ordering. The freewheel clicking sound is moderate in volume, more noticeable than other wheels I have, but not at all too loud.

***** on 17/02/2013

Well Built, Speedy Delivery, Competitive Price. What more do you want?

***** on 02/02/2013

Nice wheel set built with XT hubs and Mavic M719 rims for non disc brakes. Wheels arrived very well packed. True and round and seemingly well tensioned. First ride was 22 miles off road. After just a couple of "pings" as the first loads went on, the wheels have been great, strong and true. Very pleased:-)

***** on 23/01/2013


I was very pleased with the wheel set on arrival, they look great and hubs are super smooth. With a lovely ticking.
Good strong rims

***** on 14/01/2013

Prompt delivery and the wheels look fantastic. Far lighter than the original wheels on the bike and they run very true. I would have no hesitation in recommending these wheels. Quality items.

***** on 12/01/2013

Look at a lot of web sites to find this service and once I used they did not disappoint. Great custom built service and good value for money. Wheels look great

***** on 12/12/2012

Absolute bargain as ever... shipped to New Zealand and still about half the cost of a pair made locally!

***** on 16/11/2012

Really well put together set of wheels. Light, fast, and a really good price.

***** on 08/11/2012

First rate

***** on 01/11/2012

Keen price and quick delivery. they look really good on an old school nag. Quality!

***** on 25/10/2012

Excellent service - handbuilt to my spec and delivered within a couple of days of ordering. Wheels are top quality, and already done several miles - thanks

***** on 18/10/2012

Fantastic service. Couldnt believe how quickly these turned up. They were packed really well, they were beautifully made and roll very smoothly. I've done a couple of big rides on them already and they're still completely true. I couldnt be happier.

Will definitely be using Merlin again, the only downside is that wiggle send sweets... :)

***** on 13/10/2012
