Mr Huysamer Awesome steel frame. SRAM groupset difficult to align for entire range of the cassette but overall great buy.
Jim Morris I've now had my Jaroon for just over 7 weeks and in that time I've done nearly 850 miles on a variety of terrain - tarmac road, dry forest trails, muddy tracks & even on the beach. To say that I am happy with my Jaroon, is a massive understatement, as it has exceeded all of my expectations. I am delighted with it. I am 175 cm in height and the Medium size is a perfect fit for me. I was totally new to the Sram set up - as all of my road bikes are equipped with Campagnolo - but I have surprised myself in how quickly I have got used to the Sram tap gear change. The range of the gears is very impressive and I even surprised myself the other day when I went up a 21% slope in the lowest gear. The wheels seem to be able to take a lot of punishment, as I have went over some pretty tough stoney tracks, with no issues at all. The finish of the frame is of a very high quality - almost impossible to spot the welding and many of my mates when they first see the bike, make the assumption that it's titanium, rather than polished steel. If you are thinking of getting yourself a gravel bike, then I can tell you that you should seriously consider the Jaroon. At time of ordering, Merlin had plenty in stock in my size, so I got it in less than a week - which was fantastic, as I know there was a long waiting time for other gravel bikes that I considered, from other companies. The bike was extremely well packaged and protected and was easy to assemble. There is nothing about this bike that I don't like and I know it will continue to get my to places that you just get to on a road bike - which I'm discovering is the fun and appeal of having a gravel bike. 😊🚴♂️😊
Mr McCrae Ordered this bike over six weeks ago, and I knew there was going to be a delay due to the unprecedented demand for bikes. The bike arrived 12 days ago, but the derailleur was damaged in transit. Steve in sales was excellent and had the bike collected the following day and repaired in their workshop. I received the bike back yesterday. I had highlighted to Merlin when sending the bike back that there were two cosmetic scratches to the seat post, but I would touch them up myself. However, Merlin Cycles added a new seat post for me, which I really appreciated. The bike seems to only be available in the UK from Merlin, and the price is the best I have seen from scouring the internet. The bike itself is stunning to look at as the chromoly steel frame is polished and lacquered. Reviews indicated that it was a bit heavy but I wasn’t worried as I am over thirteen stone. I took it out today for a thirty mile ride in the west coast of Scotland when there was very strong winds and torrential rain. It handled the weather conditions beautifully. The hydraulic SRAM disc brakes worked great in the very wet conditions. The only thing for me to get used to was the SRAM Rival gears shifting, as I have always had shimano gears on previous bikes, but I started to get used to them and I’m sure after a few rides I will be unconsciously shifting gear. I purchased a gravel bike due to having two accidents involving cars, none of which were my fault, and the last accident wrote off my Merida Reacto 5000. I therefore decided to cycle on cycle paths and dirt tracks where there are no, or few, cars. This bike seems to be ideally suited for this based on today’s ride and despite the dreadful weather conditions the bike put a smile on my face and made the ride enjoyable 😊
