A super hardtail. The only thing I miss is the possibility to mount a second bottle cage. The bike was as described, the packaging perfect, the shipping to Germany with UPS went fine. Because of the super price and the excellent service, I will not hesitate to recommend Merlin Cycles.
My first 27.5 hardtail and I couldn't be happier with this bike. Communicating with the Merlin team was very easy, even with my being in the United States. They answered all the questions I had about this bike and I felt great buying it from them.
I was fortunate to find a Ritchey Timberwolf in size Large still available, even though it was on the opposite side of the Atlantic. Dealing with Merlin was extremely simple, bike was packed well and shipping was extremely fast. I would not hesitate to purchase from Merlin in the future, the entire process was very efficient.
More than happy with this purchase. A+++ from the start - fast and friendly communication before and after order, bike prepared and shipped on time with incredibly fast international UPS service. Bike packaged properly, everything as described. Top service and a really nice price. Thanks a lot!
