I have tried Shimano 105 and Dura Ace groupsets over the last years and my latest purchase of Ultegra is a first for me.
Why have I not done this before! Superb quality, excellent ergonomics and solid, slick, reliable performance at a very good price.
Best price on this groupset from Merlin - really fast delivery as well. Ultegra is certainly that bit crisper than 105 which I have on other bikes although 105 is a good reliable groupset. I would say that Ultegra is almost as good as Dura Ace for around half the price.
10 Speed Ultegra groupset, this everything you need apart from wheels for to build up a good racing bike. The brakes give you more than enough stopping power, the gear shifting is super smooth, both front and rear mechs give a precise action...the levers are sleek in design and very comfortable when riding on the hoods. I am really pleased with this on my bike.
Purchased to upgrade from Sora 2300, and everything is a significant improvement. Gears change crisply, brakes are sharp. Very pleased.
The groupset came well packed and as advertised. I have installed it on a road bike I built. The installation went smoothly and I have been riding the bike for the last few weeks. I'm very satisfied with the functionality of the groupset. Gear shifting is responsive and so are the brakes. Altogether I'm very happy with this product, and Merlin sold it for the lowest price I could find.
Great service from Merlin. Quick delivery with goods in perfect working order and condition.
Superb groupset. Smooth shifting of gears. The drivetrain feels great. There is excellent response and transfer of power with the stiff and light crankset. All brake and gear cables and housings included.
Great product from Shimano. Really happy with the groupset and the price from Merlin. Gotta say though. Shimano really need to work on the instructions. They are extremely poor. Thank god for youtube! Definitely worth the upgrade from 105 5600. Do yourself a favour!
If you are ordering Ultegra you are expecting quality and that is exactly what I got. Only minor downer is the limited Shimano instructions to install however that is what Youtube is for.. or Vimeo in this case. I had concerns that the short cage wouldn't deal with my 12/30 cassette, however the helpful post sale staff put my mind at rest. (at it easily handles the casste)
Fantastic quality shipped quickly at an unbelievable price.
Equipment is installed and works silently and extremely efficiently.. lovely..!
Have just installed this on a black on black Pinarello Dogma. It looks stunning and runs perfectly. I do wonder why I have always bought Dura Ace in the past.
Excellent product .
After buying myself a 2012 black Argon 18 frameset to upgrade my work bike, I started looking for a new groupset. Having had ultegra before, I knew what a great groupset I would be getting and when I saw Merlin Cycles price I knew I had to take the plunge.
I went for the grey version as this is darker and would set the frameset off well and when it arrived I was not disappointed. The components are light and after I got the bike built I was not only amazed how smooth the gear change was, but also how good the braking performance was and the overall general build quality.
I would highly recommend this groupset as you are not far off Dura Ace in performance, but way off in price, so in my mind a win win situation.
Works great! Replaced my old Ultegra 6500 9 speed with this, now can't tell the difference between this and my other bike with DuraAce 7900, in terms of shifting quality. Easy to build/assemble. All cables are there, with some pre-cut to the exact length.
Service from Merlin was superb. Order was completely traceable from sending to receiving, and was delivered precisely on time - 3 business days.
Excellent quality groupset, smooth and looks great. Can't fault it.
Amazing service, group set an upgrade from sora the ride is so sweet. Quality parts and performance from Shimano.
Bought the Ultegra Groupset to upgrade my existing 105 set up, great product, fantastic price.
Fitted the complete Groupset in around 4 hours, really pleased with the result. The gears shift really smoothly, the brakes are progressive and powerful.
Shimano have improved on the previous generation. It was great to be able to swap in a dura-ace chain to my purchase. Had to buy a band type front mech for my frame but was still a bargain.
Was tossing up between 105 and Ultegra and am glad I spent the bit extra as it really is worth it. This is a great groupset.
There's a lack of retailers offering complete groupsets - as usual Merlin were the cheapest and offer the best service. Perfect quality Ultegra in glossy grey.
I shopped all over the Internet for a groupset for my new bike. I ended at Merlin Cycles. Not only did they have the best price but they offered free shipping to the U.S. The shipping was extremely fast, faster than I normally get from domestic shipping. I am extremely pleased with my groupset and how carefully it was packed. Thank you.
Lightweight compared with the Tiagra I had before. Fantastic looking. Easy to set up and great functionality.
Brilliant delivery and excellent customer services.
Excellent price on this product. Delivered as promised - quickly. This is for a new build for my 2013 Cannondale CAAD10. Will be used for crit racing.
Groupset is excellent. All the bits and pieces I was expecting
Excellent. Bought the groupset as I was building myself a bike. First time I've done it. Merlin had the best price by far at the time. Delivery was very speedy too. The groupset is beautiful (as you would exspect) Went on much easier than I antisipated, adjusted very easily. I was a little surprised / disapointed that the chain didn't come with one of thouse nice re-usable spit link things. The bottom bracket had more resistance to motion than I thought it would have, the bb that came with my cheap apex crankset allowed freer spinning of the cranck than this one. The shifters are ace, they feel good in the hand, they are comfortable, require only a lite touch, with the exception of returning to the big ring at the front (that requires a bit of finger strength) The grey looks stunning with the black frame. On the whole very happy.
This an excellent product at great price. The colour is superb and I can definatley tell the difference in weight just by feel compared to some of my 105/tiagra components.
Would be better if I got a bandon front mech but that's what auction sites are for!
Top notch product from a top notch company. Great price and very fast delivery. 10 out of 10 merlin cycles as usual!
Real bargain price with quick delivery as always, not fitted yet but you don`t need me to tell you about how good Ultegra is!!
Great price, must say the Ultegra group set is silky smooth and effortless, a world away from 105. Easy setup, flawless
The 6700 groupset really looks the part, I just wish the front mech plates matched the rest of the set (they are silver). I would also have liked a band-on front mech but they seem non existent on groupsets these days.
Overall I am happy with the product but Shimano why, oh why does your front mech not match??
Great kit at an amazing price, so good I bought two!
Bang on time delivery and excellent value
Great price very friendly service recived very fast top notch
No mess no fuss groupset at the right price. The grey(almost black) finish is very tasty. I have Ultegra groupsets on three other bikes, it works for me....
Great product. Smooth ride, gears change as soon as you press the shifter. The shifter boots feel great.
The grey looks really good.
The price is great. I would recomend this goupset.
Great groupset and service! Arrived the next morning and riding it later that day! Can't ask for much more and at half the price of my local bike shop! 'Back of the net!' (Alan Partridge style lol)
Ultegra answers all the questions asked by the bike build I bought this groupset for. And the 'Glossy Grey' finish will add to the aspired for stealth black of my new bike. I look forward to my first flick of the gears when I finally get out on the road..... In addition, no one could possibly supply this groupset to me at any better value, or any greater speed than Merlin.
excellent product, great description ,had all information needed in add.Great value and once I bought the item the postage was quick.Great service will deal again.
Very low price.
