Merlin Performance PR7-RS Road Bike with free shoes and pedals up to £110
The Merlin PR7-RS is an excellent step up from your first entry level road bike. With a classic, understated look it has the performance to match its elegant and modern appearance.
The PR7-RS road bike has a light, swift feel but without the harshness often found on bikes at this level; with the clean, classic lines of the frame reflecting the pared-down gimmick-free appeal of road riding in its purist form.
The versatile PR7-RS can turn its hand to pretty much any type of road riding including your first forays into racing. It’s an adaptable bike with immense upgrade potential – morph it into a reliable tough-nut training bike or change it into a race-worthy steed.
The Merlin PR7-RS 2017 Road Bike features a triple butted alloy frame and carbon fork, precise shifting from the Shimano 105 groupset and a compact chainset combined with a wide-ratio cassette for a versatile (knee-friendly) ride.

I'm new to road cycling and this bike came highly recommended. So far I've covered 90km and am impressed with its ease of handling , quick, quiet and efficient gear selection and comfort. The brakes are fine; I prefer a bit more bite but they don't need upgrading to be fair I have come from hydraulic disks. The only let down is the welding which is a bit on the heavy handed side. Pedals work well and match the bike. The shoes aren't my cup of tea so they've gone but thats personal preference. As shoes and welding don't effect the performance I've given it 5 stars. Overall, it looks great and goes very well. Its a pleasure to ride something built in the UK.
Being new to road bikes I was seeking a decent bike without breaking the bank and the PR7-RS did not disappoint. Having scoured the web in my search for a bike, I couldn't help but be impressed by the high spec offered on the Merlin for the price and when it comes with shoes and pedals it really is too good to miss. The bike arrived assembled for the most part and the few bits the had to be done, e.g. Handlebar and pedals, were simple even for a novice like me. I admit that I was concerned about using cleats for the first time, but I really needn't have worried as I felt like I'd got the knack within a few miles of my first ride. Speaking of my first ride, I thought I`d pop out and give it a decent run of 30 miles or so. The bike however was so much easier, more comfortable, and sheer fun to ride I ended up spending 5 1/2 hour in the saddle clocking up over 70 miles on the maiden journey. Couldn't recommend this bike more highly and for the price I don't think it can be beat!
First time ordering a bike online, little apprehensive but all very straight forward. Size guiding spot on. Bike arrived well packaged after a week from ordering (Sunday). No problem assembling, only minimal work required. Gearing and brakes work faultlessly. All in all outstanding value for money. You will struggle to find a better bike at this price point especially with pedals and shoes thrown in as well. Very happy customer. Glad I took plunge into online bike purchase.
Bought as first road bike for my grandson. Exceptional value for an entry bike with 105 drive train. Paint job could be a little more enterprising - doesn't do the bike justice! Wheels heavy and could do with an upgrade in due course. Tektro brakes average. Overall - great, and I am nitpicking.
Very pleased with my new bike. Super light and moves like a dream. Have found it fairly easy to adapt to cleats also.
I felt it was a bit risky buying a bike without a test ride but it was not a problem and the service in general has been very good.
Frame wise though it's definitely proportioned for people with a long torso and short legs ie men and not so much leggy ladies.
