Geometry Information
Got a M size Astana Edition. Awesome frame colors, very good price and services as usual from Merlin Cycles. Comes with all required parts, grommets and battery holder for DI2. Also has UCI tag if it's a plus value for you.
Delighted with this frameset. Loads of useful parts included, enjoyable build and rapid out on the road. Great service from Merlin's!
The frame is absolutely fantastic. Its light weight and looks great. Not a scratch for it was packaged well coming to the US. The box actually got crushed and open at the top and the seat post had fallen out. Customer service took care of me very promptly and right away sent me another seat post. Kudos to Merlin Cycles !
Took it to my local bike shop for the build. They said it went together pretty slick even with some of the proprietary bits on the frame. It is beautifully finished and on the road I couldn't ask for a better ride. Its stiff when you need it, comfortable when pedaling on the flats and climbs really well. There was very little to get used to on the bike. The gearing is superb withe 52/36 up front and the 11-34 cog set on the rear. Plenty of climbing gears and I don't run it out much on the downhills. This will be my new go to set up rather than the 50/34. The brakes are really quite strong as I live on a pretty steep long hill and I using them coming and going for my daily rides. The frame tracks straight as anything and even at speed you never feel like you are riding on the edge. You are going fast but never out of control. This was a great purchase. It's easily the best of my 5 carbons. Now I may look at a non Aero Argon just because they are so well made.
Amazing deal and amazing frameset. It may be a few years old but this one of the best aero road frames and at this price ! 10/10
