Thursday, November 21, 2019 - 12:59
Merlin’s Black Friday sale includes loads of bikes
They have also sent us some great deals on wheels and footwear so let’s get straight to it.
40% off Ridley Noah Ultegra Aero Road Bike- £1849
Ridley Noah Ultegra Aero Road Bike
Ridley’s Noah Aero road bike is, as the name suggests, designed to be racer quick.
The carbon frame features deep tube shapes and an aggressive race geometry to help you slice through the wind while the chunky bottom bracket shell keeps the power transfer high.
This model comes equipped with Ultegra’s R8000 groupset for fast, accurate shifting.
40% off Merlin Cordite SL Ultegra Road Bike - £899
Merlin Cordite SL Ultegra Road Bike
Merlin’s Cordite SL is actually a repainted Ridley. Merlin has taken the Helium ISP and used it to create a lightweight climbing bike that is perfect for chasing Strava KoMs and race wins.
The Integrated Seatpost design keeps the frame seriously light and while that does mean that you’ll need to know your saddle height before cutting, it does eliminate fit issues.
The lightweight frame gets a mixed groupset that is mostly made up from Ultegra R8000 components.
50% off De Rosa Planet Carbon Road Frameset - £750
De Rosa Planet Carbon Road Frameset
If you’re looking for a frameset to build into a comfortable all-day road bike then the De Rosa Planet carbon frameset will ensure that you’ve got an excellent bike that will be one of a kind.
We so rarely see De Rosa bikes out on UK roads and it’s such a shame as the framesets are fabulous and they look so good.
We’d probably look to build this up with a 105 R7000 groupset for reliable performance.
47% off Felt VR4 Ultegra Disc Endurance Bike - £1149
Felt VR4 Ultegra Disc Endurance Bike
Felt’s VR4 is one of the American company’s long-distance road bikes. This carbon road bike has very little on the stock spec sheet that we’d want to upgrade.
The Shimano Ultegra R8000 shifting is brilliant and combined with the RS505 hydraulic brake levers and callipers, you’ve got a setup that will provide consistent stopping power in any weather.
A sub-compact chainset is perfect with the 32/48T gearing combining with the 11-32T cassette to provide low gears for the toughest climbs.
39% off Eddy Merckx Strasbourg 71 Disc Force 1 Gravel Bike - £1899
Eddy Merckx Strasbourg 71 Disc Force 1
If you’re a fan of heading off the beaten path then a gravel bike will provide the versatility needed to mix tarmac and loose surfaces.
The carbon frame allows for 40mm tyres to be fitted and the bike comes with the excellent Sram Force 1X11 groupset.
39% off Vision Trimax 40 Carbon Disc Road Wheelset - £529
Vision Trimax 40 Carbon Disc Road Wheelset
A wheelset upgrade is great for any bike and having a wheelset that you could use on your road, gravel, and even your cyclocross bike makes the investment
40% off Time Osmos 15 Road Cycling Shoes - £199
Time Osmos 15 Road Cycling Shoes
Time’s Osmos 15 road shoes have just been tested over on road.cc and the verdict is very positive.
Reviewer Simon praised the stiffness, comfort, insole design and the style of the shoes, going as far as to say that this shoe puts the French brand back at the top of the cycling footwear game.
