General information about our shipping
It's no secret that the 105 is a stable, smooth & precise, reliable rear mech; a no nonsense & cost effective solution, it won't let you down. Pay more for very marginal gains by all means but this is placed right at the point where the diminishing returns graph flattens off abruptly.
Very impressed with the quality of the 105 derailleur. In my view it is as good as the old Ultegra 6500 it replaced but I may upgrade the pulleys later. Merlin shipped hassle free to Florida in 8 working days. Also responded to email promptly. Good company as as an ex pat living in Florida I will buy from them again.
Winter bike heavy fall so forced replacement. Set up by a chum shifts like a dream cracking value and as cheap as the drop-out bought elsewhere!
Got this for my commuter bike. Didn't need the lightest sexiest piece, just reliable and functional. This derailleur is well made, fits a huge cassette, and is reliably precise in its shifting even on a large cassette with big jumps between rings.
Great upgrade from 9 speed Tiagra. Noticeable difference. Positive shifting. Quick. Does the job.
What can you say about shimano 105. Best bang for buck. Reliable, reasonably light perfect for an everyday training or racing bike. The last one did over 10000 miles with one change of jockey wheels. At this price its a bargain.
Bought this to replace the rather tired Tiagra one on my Cannondale. Easy to fit, easy to set up and now a big improvement to gear shifting. Well worth it, very pleased
105 has really benefited from the trickle down technology from 6700 and 7900; the only difference now is a few grams. I bought derailleurs, chainset, shifters and calipers (a few weeks earlier); so pretty much a full groupset and, owning groupsets one above and one below (which this replaced) in the Shimano range, I'm hugely impressed with 105. Great service, great price, prompt shipping...thanks.
Straight replacement and replaced original item which lasted over 5000 miles. As ever, perfect quick reliable service and a great price from Merlin
Fantastic derailleur! Shifting is clean and quick. Recommended!
Excellent rear mech - does exactly what it says on the tin. Looks great in silver and easy to set up and adjust
Great price and quick delivery thanks
It's 105, it works fine with 9 speed drivetrain on my cross bike.
The same reliable build quality and performance you'd expect from shimano, quiet slick shifting, looks nice and blingy too! Fantastic!!
Excellent value derailleur, replaced an old 105 derailler over 12 years old (spring was getting weak). Now I have fitted this one gear changes are crisp and accurate.
Solid shifting performance. Not the lightest but good looking, functional and hardish wearing.
