Took a punt on one of these after seeing your recommendation. Read all the forums from the last few years and took the plunge.
Wish I could sit here and sing the bikes praises, but I can't...because Argos/Parcelforce have conspired against me and managed to ruin the bike before I got it in my hands! Box arrived with the rear cassette poking out of the packaging where the wheel had obviously moved and decided it needed more lateral space. The box was fully open on arrival, not by myself! Who knows what fell out or 'fell out'. As Argos only do refunds (pffff), I had to make a fresh order. Managed to bag the last one available. If this one gets damaged in transit I will have no choice but to unleash a personal, one man scathing daily attack on Argos via social media. Watch this space!
Bummer. I bought one of these to add to my collection and now it's my main bike and I ride it to work most days and into some pretty decent Strava times as well.
The only thing I've changed out were tyres, saving about 200g, a proper shimano crankset and external BB as I wanted to move to 165mm cranks for a knee problem and a new saddle. Probably saved 500g in total and the bike is awesome. Flipped the stem for a more relaxed position and that's it. The frame and forks are pretty nice and absorb a load of road buzz although I've had a couple of chips I've had to cover with laquer but that can happen to any bike.
When I've destroyed my Sora groupset I'll stick 105 on it and then probably be done upgrading. The r500s are pretty bullet-proof for today's poor roads and you're spending a lot to save not much weight if you change the wheels.
In short I thoroughly recommend the CP50. It won't get the Bianchi crowd drooling at the café but to me it's more motivating catching people on a cheap bike.
What BB did you use, what length?
Standard Hollowtech 2, 68mm with a Sora 165mm crankset. Used one spacer on the drive side to match the chainline up the factory one, which was shifting ok out of the box. Didn't have any facing up issues, seems perfectly flat for external brackets.
I did read somewhere that frame and forks are used in something else (maybe a Mekk?) and it's sold with a better groupset, so I guessed that an external one would probably fit with no facing issues anyway.
Thanks for that, something in the future, wait til it wears out. Yes, it was Mekk

I've just ordered. Needed a new bike to commute to work so thanks OP. I know nothing about bikes, but this is relatively cheap and fits the bill. Just as a heads up, I don't think this is the V2. Looking at the differences, the pictures that are linked to the deal only have the single brake. If it is the V2 though, even better.
it is the v2 as my mate had had his delivered.
Just got mine delivered and you're right. It is the V2, makes the deal even better. Thanks OP
I_Am_Timms, have you been out on it yet? Any good??

It's.. okay. It's the first time I've owned a 'fixie' bike. Been used to mountain bikes/bmx and I couldn't seem to get on with it at all. When I received it, it comes half built as a fixed gear. For example, the first time I took it out for a test ride. I went down a hill and picked up speed and wasn't used to the pedals continuing rotating as the back wheel rotates forcing you to continually pedal. On a regular bike I'd like to just rest my feet on the pedals freewheel and let gravity take me. I flipped the back wheel over and made it a free wheel and I still can't get along with it. I'm probably just going to sell it on tbh, I just can't get on with it. The bike itself is pretty decent, I just don't think a fixed gear bicycle is for me unfortunately.

I notice though the description mentions front and rear brake, though the pictures only show a front one?
Looks a good deal, my only concern would be it only having a brake on the front wheel (I know a lot of fixies only have the one brake), particularly when used with the the freewheel. I've had a brake cable snap on me whilst approaching a busy junction, not having a brake on each wheel would have resulted in disaster!

Not for me, but that's a great deal on a cracking saddle for many.
Wouldn't worry about the 6g weight penalty, that's an extra squeeze during the pre-ride ****.
Very good deal but note it's the versus VS model with central channel. not comfy for everyone.. not me anyway. the ridges were like razors.i prefer the regular Aliante. heated.

Highly water resistant shell jacket
Don't know about that. This review says
http://road.cc/content/review/169742-lusso-giro-rain-jacket

It's a puzzle then, as to why it has chosen to describe the Giro as a "rain jacket" because I'm pretty sure it isn't. Ten minutes out on a sodden October day was enough to convince me of this. The fabric on the shoulders of my jersey was damp already. Whether this is because the water was seeping in through the untaped seams or getting down the neck, which can't be adjusted for tightness, is hard to say but the result is the same.


​for an emergency Summer rain jacket it works pretty well. role up very small.

bought to try. just getting back into cycling and not believing the hype about clipless but at this price, I'd be daft not to try em. £2 extra for black or silver. White as priced above.
Great deal and still active. Just bought the package - thanks OP.
Bought the bundle. Great price!
I'm still not convinced anyone needs these unless they are a serious athlete, they don't seem to make me cycle any faster and not being able to move your feet position on pedals at different points on your ride can make for uncomfortable cycling. Yes they can give you a bit more oomph when sprinting but overall I can't see the point of clipping in. If you do though, it's worth getting the pedals which are normal on one side (shimano m324s are one type I think), so you can at least use your bike to pop down the shops without having to put special shoes on!

It's not so much a question of need, I know many riders who use clipless because they prefer the feel of them which ultimately improves the riding. The pull on upstroke benefit is commonly repeated but it's not true, you can get a longer pedal cycle on clipless but cyclists don't pull up on the pedals and if they did, it's actually less efficient. Similarly the performance benefits of clipless systems are usually massively overstated, I was getting told I'd be over 30% faster on clipless compared to flats but the actual gains are much smaller. I do see the benefits off road when going on rough terrain as there's no risk of a slip but that risk can be reduced with a decent shoe/pedal and being attached to the bike in unpredictable riding brings its own risks.

I this is a great package for people who want to try out clipless pedals but for those getting on well with flats, don't feel you have to change. I regret being pushed into clipless pedals (and wasting a lot of money on the system) and more so not changing back to flats sooner, even now I still get told I should change to clipless pedals so I can go much faster or better yet, people being shocked at events I could do a decent pace on flats.

You don't need to think about feet position, or focus keeping your foot on the pedal. It can relieve muscle aches by using upstrokes if parts of your legs get tired. You just attach and focus on everything else. Obviously take care when stopping :)

are they some kind of OEM brake since does not have the grey accents of the retail pics
I'm afraid I have no idea. They weren't packaged a box or anything. The certainly seemed new and unused, no marks on them. Don't know if they are gray import or old stock. Could be fake for all I know, but seem the real deal to me.

great brakes.have these on my trance.have the slx on my other bike.no difference at all.the standard pads they come with are rubbish.same with slx pads.shimano organic.change them for some serated pads from superstar or urberbike and your on to a winner.as it happens the new xt brakes got a poor review the slx from last year win the test.and the deore are basically the same brakes as slx without reach adjust turn knob.shimano slx and deore are fantastic.a combo of both is good.the slx cassette is much better than deore cassette tho.if i qas on a budget id have deore brakes chainset mecs and chain and slx cassette and shifters.which can be had for 30 from merlin
Yeah m8000 xt out of box aren't so great, bled up correctly they are quality, I prefer them to slx m675 which as you say are equivalent to these m615,
Although both brakes work supurb and friends who have these m615 are more than happy,
I've seen an article for some new slx m7000 coming out and they look identical to the new xt, pearlescent finish,
Depending on your brake levers and shifters and whether you want your shifters attached is probably the main reason to go higher spec,
The m675 are ispec b, which you can attach the majority of 10 speed shifters ,
I planned to upgrade to 11 speed In the next year hence buying the xtm8000 I can do that with the ispec ii compatibility .. Why oh why did they need a different join

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 :)

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.

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?

Great but for giants
Now when I clip you you'll at least look stylish hitting the deck. Heat!

It's still in stock but in a 62cm Frame. That seems extremely large.

Brand new or second hand? Waiting list is HUGR now
Where does you look for second hand bikes. I live in the south west of UK.

It's still a great bike for £779.99, I'd have bought it myself if I hadn't recently bought a canyon, anyone after a full suspension 29er will find it hard to get a better deal than this

I'm not doubting that at all :)

What is the sizing like
They are a sport fit so if you want it not too tight go one size up, that's what I did anyway and it fits me fine

Brilliant deal!
How does it compare to the 'Merlin FF1 105 Mix Road Bike' @ £549.95 ?https://www.merlincycles.com/merlin-ff1-105-mix-road-bike-84204.html
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.

56cm now sold out. Only 52cm and 60cm left...
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):)
