BLACK! The new Merlin PR7-R

A beginner’s racing road bike for those like to attack stealthily.


Merlin Cycles price £425.00

The basic PR7 is arguably the most popular bike that we’ve ever done. This bike doesn’t replace that bike.

It keeps the ethos of the PR7 – incredible bang for buck – but where that bike is an everyman all-rounder the PR7-R is more focussed on performance. This is a beginner’s racing bike.

Yep, the R is for Racing.

Stiff and lightweight frame with classic racing geometry. The heart of the PR7-R is a frame and fork that is ripe for a lifetime of being hammered around in the bunch.

The finishing kit is also very capable. Shimano, Mavic and Kalloy Uno are all names that experienced cyclists will know and appreciate.
