Another excellent Takeover from Merlin Cycles, packed with great deals on framesets, clothing, and components.

Let's get right to it!

Ridley Noah SL Carbon Frameset

If you're looking to build up a fast road bike for group rides, sportives and racing then Ridley's Noah SL is a great place to start.

This carbon frameset is designed to slice through the air and provide plenty of stiffness for sprinters in the dash to the line.

Given that this is a fast aero frameset, the ride is surprisingly compliant thanks to space for wider tyres. 

De Rosa 888 Carbon Road Frameset

De Rosa 888 Carbon Road Frameset
£1155.00

This frameset is one for the climbers thanks to the stiffness offered by the oversized bottom bracket and low weight.

The frame was designed to also be compliant, hence the many angles made during the carbon layup.

Merlin Cordite SL Ultegra R8000 Mix Carbon Road Bike

£999.95

Merlin's Cordite SL is simply a resprayed Ridley Helium, one of the best climbing bikes on the market.

You get the integrated seatpost for the lowest possible weight and great stiffness.

This one has been built up using Shimano Ultegra R8000 shifters for snappy shifting and powerful braking.

Castelli Perfetto Long Sleeve Cycling Jersey

Castelli Perfetto Long Sleeve
£126.00

We're big fans of the Castelli Perfetto here at Deal Clincher HQ.

The Perfetto is the follow-on from the Gabba. Castelli gave it the same close fit for fast riding and racing and also kept the excellent windproofing that makes these jerseys so warm. The material is a light lighter, helping with breathability.

There are really nice finishing details on this jersey, like the storm flap to protect against wheel spray and the waist gripper that keeps the jersey in place.

Castelli Emergency Womens Jacket

Castelli Emergency Womens Jacket
£65.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

A rain jacket that you can stow in your pocket is rather useful here in the UK.

Getting one that protects well against heavy showers and also fits well isn't easy but Castelli's Emergency rain jacket does both, at a very reasonable price too.

This one features a women's specific cut.

Castelli Velocissimo IV Bibshorts

Castelli Velocissimo IV Bibshorts
£55.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

The Velocissimo bibs are some of our favourites and offer a great balance between performance and price.

Soft and supportive lycra makes up the main parts of the shorts with wide leg grippers finishing the shorts perfectly.

These are great for long days in the saddle thanks to the excellent fit and comfortable chamois.

3T Ergoterra Team Carbon Gravel Bar

3T Ergoterra Team Carbon Gravel Bar
£125.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

If you're on the lookout for a new bar for your gravel bike, or you'd just like a flared drop for your road bike then the Ergoterra is perfect.

The drops kick out by 6°, giving more comfort and better control thanks to the wider stance.

The bar is carbon, giving better vibration damping than an aluminium bar. 

Pair Michelin Lithion 2 Folding Road Tyres & Innertubes

Pair Michelin Lithion 2 Folding Road Tyres & Innertubes
£24.95

And finally, here's a tyre package that won't break the bank.

Michelin's Lithion 2 tyres are designed for general road riding and they do very well for the low price.

The package comes with two tyres and two free tubes.
