Code: SBIR-105

The Fuse is our best ever execution of a carbon road bike that’s easy to live with and is a pleasure to ride. It’s very much a practical everyday machine as well as a looker.

The carbon layup on the Fuse has been chosen to offer high levels of comfort and vibration dampening. We know that a lot of UK roads aren’t exactly billiard table smooth and it’s real world riding that the Fuse is intended for.

The Fuse exhibits remarkable stability, balance and smoothness with a consistency that is all too rare with carbon bikes at this level. This is not to say that it can’t mix it with the best of them when the red mist descends and you want to go on the attack.

It’s a great handling bike that’s impressively taut under pedal power and responsive up front too. It’s sort of like a race bike that’s had its harsh pointiness removed.

We need to mention its appearance again. The Fuse is one fine-looking bike. The classy matt black finish is a delight to the eyes as well as the fingertips. The Fuse frame and fork are superbly finished and this level of quality really shows when set against our logo and graphic work.

To get the most out of this excellent frameset we committed early on to a fully Shimano 105 groupset. 105 is where Shimano’s trickle-down technology is at its best. Super slick 11 speed shifting and powerful, controllable braking.

We opted to go with legendary brand Mavic and their award winning Aksium wheelet. 4ZA supply the rest of the finishing kit for a dependable and consistent ride character.

Named as one of road.cc's Bikes Of The Year 2015/2016.

Aimed squarely at the sub-£1000 commuter-sportive rider, this bike is a real steal. Out on the roads, the carbon frameset gives a smooth and comfortable ride. Racers and more aggressive sportive riders might want something lighter, stiffer and more responsive, but the Merlin Fuse 105 should be on the shortlist of cyclists looking for top bang for their buck under £1,000. - road.cc

General information about our shipping
My first road bike, I've had this now for around 3 months and approaching 1000 miles on it. The only thing I have to compare it to is a steel Roberts someone lent me for a month or so so I could decide if I wanted to commit to road cycling (and my ally hybrid but that's hardly comparable). This is so much quicker and more responsive, I'm now a born-again Mamil and in danger of becoming a bike bore. It also looks fantastic and friends of mine who have many years cycling experience agree it's a lot of bike for the money. Only niggle I've had is that I've had to change the saddle which I didn't find very comfortable, but that's just personal to me.
Have had this for just over a week now and been out 4 times. Longest ride so far about 20 miles. First proper road bike I've had and really enjoying it but don't have a lot of reference points. Minor niggles were the bike arriving without valve caps on the wheels and a duff rear tyre but credit to Merlin for sending out a replacement super quick. Other than that everything seems to be set up perfectly. Bike is very light and seems pretty speedy to me but I was coming from a chunky hybrid. Also pleased with how it does seem to soak up a load of the road vibrations. Overall very pleased.
I received the bike much quicker than I thought and it was packed great and easily put together. I have ridden about 25 miles and I have to say it is fantastic! Fantastically smooth and responsive. Being in the USA, I didn't expect the rear brake to be on the left though. Just takes a bit of getting used to. The bike looks wonderful and my riding buddies were immediately jealous I love it and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a bike at a great price!
This bike is awesome for this price, you can't get anything close to it. After my first ride I was so surprised that I went for a 100km ride and wasn't even thinking that I went that far. Great bike for the money you can't go wrong with this beauty.
Very very good cycle. Top value for money
