Merlin, sometimes cheap, but worst customer service I've experienced in a long time. I'll stick to Wiggle, CRC and Evans.
Never had a problem myself, really fast delivery too
Agree, but when a simple £12 chain didn't turn up, they refused to refund, or even send a replacement until 14 working days had passed, and then when that had passed, told me I had to wait until RM returned due to their system entering the wrong address. All other places I've had similar issues with replaced or refunded no questions asked. Shame, as I've had decent deals from them, but proof of the pudding is when things don't go as planned.
Ah right, must admit I've never had to deal with customer services as everything I've ordered turns up next day, I use them a lot as they have some great deals on, but I suppose if something did go wrong and I had an issue like that it would put me off, fingers crossed it doesn't because it's the place I buy most of my cycling gear now :)


​Hope it's a one off for others sake, but as there's so many other online cycle stores now, they're off my Xmas card list. :)

[quote=BesfordThat's an excellent experience but (excuse the cynicism) I suspect they wanted you to accept a quick payout rather than pursue it further and cost them more. I've had similar experience with a non-fault car accident. No problem if you're unhurt and happy with the result though.[/quote]
Yeah, happy for a quick payout. Like I said, I need a bike for work and my only damage to my body was bruising. The lady was very apologetic, not intent just bad infrastructure on a road that is notorious for near-misses anyway. If I didn't already have a lot of the parts in to replace bit on my bike anyway then I would have been £100 up so I see it as a result. I have a steel frame too so it can take some hammer.

Insurance paid out within a week - wow!
Yeah, I was very impressed and would recommend LV who her insurance was with (this may sound like a Craig David song) but the accident happened on a Friday, she contacted her insurance and admitted fault same day. Had a missed call Saturday, they were closed Sunday. Spoke to claim person Monday, I emailed them with damage Tuesday, they confirmed Wednesday and I got the cheque Friday almost coming through the door at the exact time of the accident previous week.

Merlin's bundles look OK. I'm torn right now of what to do. I was hit by a car last week and repairs are needed. Frame looks OK (steel) - insurance paid out £400 for replacement of bits (inc clothing & helmet) and I spent £40 so far cheaply getting it back on road and used parts I already had in stock. Then my crank fell off yesterday (right outside MI6 if you're spying - it may have looked like so elaborate snooping - it wasn't) so part of me is seeing these deals and thinking n+1 and sod fixing it up.
I need a bike for work and sanity. I like tinkering but looking at my options is feeling like chore. Guidance please HUKDs! New bike or fix up?

Also consider the £250 Ribble Prime for a beginner road bike.http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/ribble-prime/build/
What's not to like for £250, claris with a carbon fork. That's £50 cheaper than the Triban 500se and comes with better claris shifters.

It's a good deal, but don't you need to add pedals?

Do you think it is worth spending an extra £50 for the Shimano 105 5800 that comes with the Merlin FF1 ?
Not worth paying for a extra two gears and better tyres and it looks better.

I just checked My Quidco & I have £19.96 confirmed for my Sensa, so delivery charge works out at under a tenner.
I had called Merlin about their delivery charge as I only live 6 miles from them & was initially annoyed with the charge, they said they are sorry, but do not have click & collect available at the moment.
So I bit the bullet & ordered. After opening the box & seeing the Sensa ,I am more than happy I paid £509 in total. <38):)

Yes the pedals will fit both road and MTB chainsets. You will need SPD compatible cycling shoes to go with the pedals.

Are the fixings standard fire road bikes? I'd be wishing to use these with my triban 3, if any if the pro cyclists could advise would be appreciated.
morrig
Unclipping is easy with systems now in the days gone bye had shoe plates and clip and straps,so had lean down to loosen the strap and then lift your shoe out of the pedal slot.That was especially fun with a fixed wheel bike.
Mind last summer had a Look cleat come loose that jammed ,had to use my right foot to unmount with the left one still in pedal.

avid brake review
And for fairness a review of Avid brakes of roughly equivalent spec
If you search all the other brake reviews on bike radar Monzer you will notice a lot of the reviews of various Avid systems mention set up, bleeding and levers pulling to the bar issues
There is no denying Avod had a pretty rotten couple of years recently which coincided with Shimano really getting their braking systems sorted

brake review

Hopefully help people fight past 'opinion'

(Of course a magazine review is just another opinion)
mudhead
I counted 6 people that recommended Shimano then got bored. I forgot that I originally posted this deal to get a demographic of who uses which brakes.

As I said, all these replys are just other people's opinions, which I personally value much more than any magazine review.
Monzer
mudhead
Well from a personal experience as 90% of the other members on this conversation have stated, avids are a pain to setup and keep running true.
I don't think it's a fair statement to say other members are being lead up the garden path by people, who have an opinion from experience, as do you Monzer. You prefer Avids, fair play to you.
At the end of the day, you buy the brakes on the post at a cheap price (which is what we are all here for) stick them on your bike and for the majority of people here there will be an improvement.

90% of what? 3 people? I hate to teach you statistics but erm.. that isn't a good sample size.

You'd be better off looking at reviews and posts on mtbr.

I have elixir r with a 185 g3 clean sweep rotor and adapter up front and a 160 at the back. Would this be a straight swap for front and rear? I could go back to 160 at both ends....
I did some research and saw a post about overhang of the rotor with a 185 and avid rotors being thicker than shimano. Thoughts appreciated.

What matters is the rotor diameter - if you've got 185 I think you'll need a Shimano post adaptor and a new disc to suit the caliper - Shimano use 180mm. I ran into this when I bought a 183mm Hope disc, thinking I could use my 180 Shimano post adaptor. Nope, disc fouled on the caliper and I needed to buy the Hope post mount adaptor. You'd need the Shimano post mount adaptor for 180mm rotors (or whatever you end up buying) and the appropriate disc. It's only Avid who work(ed) with the 185mm rotor.
