If you're looking to build up a new road bike before the nice spring weather arrives, how about building up a 1X road bike?

Yes, ditching the front mech does mean that you're going to be sacrificing a fe gears, but you should still have the range that you'd expect from a 2X system and a 1X system has its advantages.

Firstly, you save a bit of brain power by not having to think about whether you should be in the little ring or the big ring.

A 1X system is more aero too, apparently. While it might not be a huge difference, it's a good move for those building a circuit race bike or riders that live in a flat area.

Removing the front mech also means that the seat tube can be designed without the need to support the front mech, or in a way that it is in a position to place the front mech correctly.

About Merlin Cycles

Merlin Cycles was initially a mail-order business started in June 1993 by John Moss in the spare bedroom of his house in Whittle Le Woods near Chorley. A few months later the company opened a shop premises in Ormskirk, Lancashire. In 1998 Merlin Cycles moved to larger shop premises in Leyland.

Merlin Cycles spent ten years on the Leyland premises. During this time they began designing their own mountain bikes, including the Rock Lobster steel hardtails and then the Malt aluminium hardtails.

From an original concentration on the UK mountain bike market, recent years has seen the company switch to catering equally for the increasing road cycling market. In 2008 the company moved to their current shop, warehouse and office premises in Buckshaw Village, Chorley.

In 2012 Merlin Cycles began as the sole importer of Dutch-based bike company Sensa. Merlin Cycles now have an exclusive UK deal with Sensa.
