Merlin PR7 Alloy Road Bike - Shimano Claris 8 Speed Drivetrain

The Merlin PR7 is an unbeatable value entry level road bike rivalling bikes out there that are twice the price. With a classic, understated look it’s not just a good-looking bike, it’s a great riding bike too with the performance to match its elegant and modern appearance.

Featuring a sophisticated aluminium frame paired with a carbon fork and quality Shimano gearing the PR7 features tough but lightweight Mavic CXP wheels and is an excellent example of how technology which was previously found on much more expensive machines trickles down to entry level road bikes.

The Merlin PR7 is a simple, reliable road bike with a broad range of gearing which is perfect for riders who are just starting to venture out on longer rides. This versatile road bike allows you to run a rear rack too so why not fit panniers and start commuting to work. 

The Merlin PR7 Road Bike features a triple butted alloy frame and carbon fork providing impressive stiffness and efficiency under power. The Shimano Claris groupset offers crisp, reliable indexed gear shifting; we have also specced Mavic CXP-22 wheels with slightly wider 25mm tyres to help smooth out the unpredictable road surfaces you’ll no-doubt encounter.

Mr Boston My first ever road bike and fallen in love with it immediately. Chose to start with a cost effective bike and this has been superb. In first 7 days already clocked up 150 miles and looking forward to the next few thousand. Not sure why I would upgrade to be honest (apart from to different pedals). Happy with everything about it
Richard Looking for an introductory road bike and after reading a number of reviews for other products, opted for the PR7 and I wasn’t disappointed! Looks great, rides smooth and for the price is a good entry level. Service from Merlin overall has been very good too. Just be mindful that when ordering the bike does not come with pedals as standard!
Mr Rosvall Great bike overall. I use it for bicycle touring as well as for long one day rides.
Mr Sumners So far so good. I've had my bike for a few days and it looks great. Nice old school feel to it. I've only been out on two rides so far both about 30kms each and it is performing very well. I used to ride a single speed but upgraded to multi-gear road bike and the comparison is noticeable. For the price it is superb, the front derailer has needed some attention but little tweaks are expected when a bike is delivered. Superb bike and quick delivery especially with the current situation! Would recommend.
AG I have waited to test this bike on a few rides before submitting a review. I am a novice cyclist and opted for this bike after reading a few reviews online. It is a great bike at this price point. It looks sleek and is light which means I can get it up and down the stairs in the flat very easily. Would say that it could do with a slightly wider gear range, as I live in Yorkshire and we have a lot of hills, but despite this I am still managing on the steeper climbs and overall very happy with this purchase.
