It’s time for another edition of what’s in the shop as we take a look at the bargains and some new stuff that you can in our shop right now.
First up let’s just say with a heavy heart that winter is coming! That might not be a bad thing for some people but the Merlin Cycles crew will certainly miss the sunny weather which at the minute is still hanging on.
The reason we mention the shift in seasons is to give you a nudge to look out on our website for summer bargains. Summer clothing, bikes, team kit, it all has to go and you could save a fortune.
If you’re fortunate enough to live in sunnier climates like Australia and you’re reading this, then you really could get lucky as your summer has only just begun. Here’s a few picks from us but have a mooch round the site and see what you can find.
RockShox RS-1 Fork
Anyway back to the shop and first up we have the RockShox RS1 ACS Fork and Sram RS-1 Predictive Steering 32H Front Hub. This is possibly the most radical thinking fork RockShox have ever made or certainly in a number of years.
RockShox have set out to make the lightest and most responsive hub for the World Cup XC and now you too can have it. Of course stuff like this doesn’t come cheap RRP £1,595.00 but together with the hub (which you’ll need) we have it on offer for £1,361.82.
If that’s your budget then there isn’t much better out there and for that you’ll get a carbon steerer and what possibly the world’s lightest air spring. See what all the fuss is about in the link.
Sram Red 22 Double Tap Shifters
Red 22 is Sram’s top of the line group set as used by Mark Cavendish and Alberto Contador. It is also the world’s lightest group set, normally commanding a quite a high price we have these shifters at 51% off RRP.
Felt Bundle Deal
Grab a Felt F75 road bike plus SPD Pedals, Shoes, Bottle and Cage for just £669.99! For that you get a Shimano 105 group set with FSA crankset, a carbon fork and seat post and of course a bargain! Grab one quick as they are selling fast!
Schwalbe Ultremo ZX Folding Tyre
One of our favourite tyres is now 45% off RRP and they come in a range colours to suit your bike. Stock up now and save some money.
Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost
Save between 26% and 33% on this fantastic seatpost, that is the lightest dropper seatpost on the market. Dropper seatposts have become ever more popular in recent years and we have to say that this is probably the best out there.
It works using a cartridge system and is much simpler in form than its rivals. The result of this simpler approach is more reliability, in our experience this is the only dropper you need.
