Mark Perfect for replacing an old worn spring and upgrade to longer arm for wider ratio
Mr Quattrin Purchased this as a spare. At the sale price, it was impossible to pass up. The derailleur was well-packaged.
Mike Great deal on great kit, shifting is improved from the Tiagra it replaced and allowed me to move to a 11-32 cassette to gain a better granny gear.
Jules59 Needed a longer derailleur cage (medium GS) to cater for a 11-32 cassette . Prefect replacement for my original 105 rear mech. Excellent service.
David Smooth shifting, as good as Dura ace 7803 and only 20g heavier.
Mr Howard Very nice and tidy piece of kit. Not as smooth as the Ultegra but that is to be expected. Easy to replace and tune
John Pilling I recently changed my rear cassette from 11-27 to 11-36 in order to enable me to get up some of he horrendous gradients that are used on the Isle of Man Sportive's. The old short cage derailleur simply could not handle the range/chain length required for the 36T low gearing - this derailleur together with a hanger extender worked perfectly and I now run a 10 soeed 11-36T with a traditional 50-34 chain ring. Easy to fit in minutes. and a few more to get it tuned in. Merlin cycles price was fantastic and the regular delivery was on time, exactly as they stated. Great Service.
Josh Easy to fit and works perfectly
Kevin Great rear derailleur! Got this one to replace my existing 105. I am going to go up to 32 teeth on my gravel bike. Needed the longer cage.
Andrew The workhorse of the Shimano range. Dependable shifting is a given. Great price from Merlin also.
Mr Filipek It is time to replace my rear derailleur and this one is replacing the original. It lasts a long time and gives many years of reliable service through even the worst commuting conditions
Mr Wilkinson Nice looking product. Very easy to fit and set up. 105 stuff sets up well and a good price point. Delivery spot on as usual.
AR Shimano 105 is generally a very good balance between quality and price and this derailleur is no exception. I bought this to replace an Ultegra derailleur and the main reason was the fact that the ultegra was almost twice the price of this one. The shifting is smooth and crisp and I have not noticed any difference in performance. Merlin was the best price for this and I ordered on a Tuesday night and the item was dispatched the following morning. Can't ask for more. Thanks Merlin.
Gresswell This was a straight replacement for my old one (10,000 miles). Although I don't think my old one was really that worn, so could probably have gone quite a bit further. So overall the 105 remains a good reliable rear mech
LAVAU80 I purchased this to replace the one on my bike that had done around 20,000kms and had seized up. Cheaper to replace than to fix, bike now shifts like new.
Mr Wood Shimano 105 is unbeatable for the price. Really good gear at a very reasonable price.
pearce It replaces a lower grade Tiagra. Shifts very well. Great price. Easy to install and index.
Baggy So I`m replacing one of these on my 2011 SuperSix... Just to give you an idea how hard wearing these bad boys are, I have done over 20,000k on that mech without a single problem .. It finally gave up when I smashed the buggy in to it in the shed ... Great shifting, long lasting bit of kit.
Rico Very good rear mech, shifts perfect and possibly the best value 10 speed rear mech on the market !!!
Mr Clements Fitted this to specialised allez 2009. Performs with no issues, at a great price.
Mr Rouse Top quality mech at a great price. Fast delivery. Purchased to replace 7 year old 105 derailleur, I am sure this one will last as long.
Hambly Improved version of old 5700, works really well better than 5700. Easy to fit. The spring in the old one was weak, stopped pulling back quite far enough. GOOD FAST service as ever by MERLIN CYCLES also best price
Lawnmower man Quality product. Smooth shifting up & down. Bought to replace my old 105 unit which served me well for years in all conditions.
butcher 100% Perfect product; needed as a direct replacement for the original as the desert sand in UAE had completely worn the pivot out. Brilliant price and magic service as always from the Merlin team !
Mr christie My last derailleur lasted 5 years. These are easy to set up, are reliable, robust and best of all just work. What's not to like?
Mr Barnes Excellent. Easy to install and works really well with just a slight weight penalty
Ronno6 Just exactly as I expected. Perfect shifts on my 10 speed drive train.
Mr K Easy to fit and setup. Gear changes are precise and rapid. Not quite as light as Ultegra but I've calculated that if I remove 35ml of water (less than a mouthful) from my water bottle, then my bike is no heavier than if i had fitted the Ultegra version.
Mr Midmore I bought a Sensa Romagna Special from Merlin Cycles nearly 2 years ago. I use the bike for my daily commute & now - some 6.5K miles later - things unsurprisingly have worn-out. Love the bike, so I have treated it to some new Shimano 105 parts. Now as good as new. Thank you Merlin Cycles for all the good gear together with excellent service.
Mr hobbs Smooth and quick - this is a great piee of kit
Mark Bulletproof 105 Rear Derailleur. 105 is probably my favorite groupset from Shimano. It's economical but well made and always works. The best for commuting, winter rides.
Mr Edwards A quick an easy install, shifts without drama, a solid piece of kit
Mr Evans Looks good, easy to fit and excellent indexing.
Ned in Newcastle I bought this to upgrade from a basic Shimano 2300 that came as standard. I considered moving up to Tiagra only bu due to the low price offered by Merlin for the 105 mech I decided to opt for it instead (34.99 paid). What can I say about the derailleur; it is much improved over what I had as standard. It shifts so much more smoothly. There are no clunks when shifting down from the bigger gears. This is to be expected but definitely worth it.I am currently running this with a 8 speed set up but will be moving to full 105 10 speed at the first opportunity.
Dr Jackson Not quite as crisp a shift as Ultegra but a lot cheaper.
Mr Thomson This was a replacement unit as my original was damaged by another cyclist. Had no problems at all with 105 for the last few years & have just used this one during Etape Caledonia. Cheap price & good quality.
Mr French Solid shifting and clean looks, and at a good price from Merlin. Would prefer if Shimano used the sealed bearing pulleys.
Mr Waters It's a basic rear mech which can be easily improved with the addition of quality ball bearing jockey wheels. I own Ultegra and Dura 7800 on other bikes and this performs exactly the same but does add a few grams. Lotsa bang for the buck is what 105 is about so it rates four out of five.
Mr Luke Great product at an unmatchable price.
Mr Jeffery I have purchased many road bike components from Merlin Cycles and all transactions have gone very well, a superb company to deal with.
Mr Karolski Great product from a great brand.
Mr Fowkes Derailleur seems to run smoothly. Usual Shimano quality
Mr reynolds What it said on the TIn Thanks Guys Good price from these guys and fast post
Mr DIXON great deraileur at great price,always choose shimano's italion rival but suprised at accurate shifting and modern look.
Mr Griffiths good product well set up it performs as well as some more expensive models
Mr endo I upgrade from 9-speed to 10-speed, changing the triple crank to double one. That causes me to change everything. I must have spent more money, but here "Merlin" gave me good prices. Thanks so much, Merlin!! Next time again I will definitely come and buy some, I swear. I was lucky I found this nice internet shopping. Thanks.
