Garry AOrdered these hand builts to replace the stock wheels on my Defy 3 which had spokes breaking. These arrived quickly with lots of updates from Merlin on the delivery status. They appear to be lighter than my previous wheels and well put together. Only done around 100 miles on them but no problems so far. Twin pack of Zaffiro 18 mm rim tapes were a perfect fit as were my 25mm Durano tyres. I would buy them again.
Mr ChaddockGood, hard wearing wheels that do exactly what they are built for. Build quality is excellent as you'd expect. However, they are weighty and a bit sluggish up hills, plus the profile is quite narrow. I wouldn't really recommend a 25 tyre, I went down to a 23 and they sat a lot better on the rim. No problem for winter training though.
Mr PriceThese are great training wheels. So good this is the second pair. Clincher is that they are handbuilt!
DaveyI fitted these wheels to my bike this weekend. What a difference. They were completely true out of the box and I had the whole job done in 40 mins. First 35 mile cycle when without issue and spokes are all tight as expected. I can recommend this wheel set-up without hesitation.
AP133Great set of wheels for the price! I am a heavy rider. The rims are strong the hubs are smooth and they look really good as well! Bought these after looking for a while. Good quality wheels for all round cycling.
DavidExcellent value for money. Run smooth and have the assurance of being hand built. Have already recommended to friends
Mr ChambersAfter much deliberation I decided on this set of wheels and they were within my budget and I needed a more conventional set wheels that would withstand the my local road surface conditions. I can't fault the build quality and the Shimano hubs are extremely smooth, a massive improvement over my old wheels.
Mr MunroGreat wheels for training and winter use. I kept buying lower end wheels, Fulcrum 5 or Shimano R500, and having to bin them after 1 winter - Fulcrum spokes and rims are uneconomically expensive and the R500 hubs have very poor sealing & lower grade metals in the hubs that once marked are done. These 5800 hubs have much better sealing, better grade materials and new spokes/rims are easily available and replaced. And again excellent after sales service from Merlin with my queries.
Mr benfieldGood strong wheels for reasonable price. These rims have wear groove so should be easy to judge when worn out.
ARI needed some new 32H wheels as my current H+ Archetype on ultegra hubs were getting a bit concave. These were cheaper than getting a new build on the Ultegra hubs. weight wise I cannot tell if they are lighter or heavier. Having ridden 20km on them they seem pretty good for the price.
Mr BlackGood wheels, have same on winter bike which I built myself. Merlin cheaper than I could do them. 105 hubs great value as they go forever. Mavic rims, best at price.
