Road and Mountain Bike Wheels
Road Wheels are a standard 700c size (27”) so any road wheel will fit any road bike. As you spend more money the wheel tends to get lighter unless you go for an aero rim which may be heavier but work better in aerodynamic terms. Merlin Cycles stock wheelsets from major brands including Enve, Fulcrum, Mavic, Shimano and Zipp as well as our own hand built custom wheel service where you can choose rim, hub and spokes and we’ll build it.
Wheel spares and accessories such as spokes, rim tapes, cassette freehub bodies, rims and bearings can all be replaced rather than buying a complete wheel. Handy accessories such as 6-Bolt to Centre-Lock adapters and vice versa for bike disc brakes, or valve extenders for deep section rims can also save money. Or for upgrading, there’s lightweight colour coded titanium skewers or ceramic hub bearings. Merlin Cycles stock wheel accessories from brands including A2Z, Shimano, ACI, Hope and Zipp
Mountain Bike Wheels are available in three sizes; 26”, 27.5” (650b) and 29” (29er). Then its disc or traditional rim type brakes in a standard or tubeless rim. XC rims tend to be thinner whilst DH and more aggressive riders need a wider rim. Merlin Cycles stock mountain bike wheels from Shimano, Hope, Mavic and Crank Brothers as well as our own hand built custom wheel service where you choose rim, hub and spokes and we do the building.
