I bought the malt-g after having a decent road bike for many years. I decided to go to gravel to have a more well rounded bike which I can journey on the road, or on cross country trips. I think this bike is well up to the job-especially for the price. The main issue I had is with the bike length, so be slightly wary with size. It would have been very helpful for the site to provide a rider height guide with this bike specifically because of its difference in reach to road bikes. I am 173cm and have done well with 54cm bikes for many years, yet I was a bit surprised with the length of the bike. But I have now placed a shorter stem and enjoy the steering a lot more! The bike has been great on my gravel rides and good on my road rides now. The bike is worth the money in that it provides a great base (frame, fork, and groupset), while the other elements of the bike (wheels, tyres, brakes) are a bit lower quality, but can be eventually replaced. All totally understandable for a budget gravel bike! Always great service from Merlin!
Nice solid bike, grey and orange work well, lost one mark because of the Tiagra gears slipping. Possible derailleur issue. Changed tyres before using the supplied Kendas so can`t comment on these but they look better for muddier conditions so may go back to them.? Used on the road and canal towpath and zips along well on both.
The bike is great and comfortable. Rides well on the roads.
Very happy with the purchase of this bike, really light and feels good to ride. Service from Merlin was excellent
This bike is very cool. Comfortable geometry. Color is very nice. Frameset and fork look great.
