After our first shipment of G2 series Merlin gravel bikes coincided with ‘that’ lock-down bike frenzy, we have now got decent stock of our three gravel best sellers, plus the frameset only option with the Malt G2X. So, if you are looking for a tough, hard-wearing gravel bike or a bike to completely boss winter, or one bike to do pretty much EVERYTHING – just choose your ideal Malt!
Merlin Malt G2 Range
The good news is all of our gravel bikes feature a very inclusive range of sizes, all framesets feature tweaked geometry which enables sure footed handling to inspire confidence where ever you ride. Our three aluminium bikes all have our own brand wheels with thru-axle fitting for a solid connection between wheels and frameset. All three bikes also feature carbon fibre forks and a full compliment of rack and mudguard mounts, making them a pretty good option for winter riding, even with fat tyres.
Malt G2 Claris
Our entry level bike offers some very attractive features for a relatively low cost bike. Thru axle wheels, carbon fibre forks and a double butted aluminium frame provide a reliable and sturdy chassis. The Shimano Claris groupset delivers good quality, dependable shifting and solid budget performance.

Malt G2P Tiagra
Our mid-range aluminium gravel bike, the G2P Tiagra, benefits from a triple butted aluminium frame for a more spritely ride, internal cable routing, tapered head tube for more stable and solid front end. The Shimano Tiagra 10 speed groupset allows a good range of gears for tackling most on and off road challenges.

Malt G2X GRX
Our top end aluminium Malt is an off-road loving thoroughbred. It features a high quality triple butted frameset, a high performance and great value mix of Shimano’s gravel-specific 1X GRX groupset. The bike rolls on our own brand GDA-1 wheelset, while FSA components (including flaired Adventure Gravel handlebars) and high performance Schwalbe G One gravel tyres complete a very able and competitive gravel bike package.

Malt G2X Frameset
If you would rather build your own custom spec’ gravel bike, the Malt G2X frameset is a great place to start. The lightweight yet extremely solid frameset builds into a 8 – 11 KG bike, depending on specification. The frameset can be built either 1X or 2X and with 700c or 650b wheels. Build your dreams!
