After a few years of remaining untweaked, Sensa have decided the Giulia was worth tinkering with a bit.

Patrick’s parts bin has turned up a trio of gear levers that encapsulate how much this aspect of cycling has altered since the 80s.

Take a break from all the heavy discounting Black Friday insania and focus on some unashamedly expensive kit. Bring on the bike porn!

Normal clincher tyres have improved immensely. Do tubs still have a place in the 21st century? What about tubeless?

Don’t saddle your child with stabilisers. Or pedals. Set them on the right path with a balance bike.

Another instalment from Patrick’s rummages through his cycling keepers box. This time it’s pedals.

The GoPro is the market leader among action cameras. But it’s not a perfect product. TomTom’s action camera has one clear advantage.

Just been in today to purchase a new set of wheels, I couldn't make my mind up so the very kind and patient lady fetched 3 sets of wheels from the warehouse and open all the boxes so I could see each wheel, I went for the DT Swiss in the end. I thought the service was second to none Its the first time I have visited Merlin cycles and it certainly wont be my last! Thanks again kind lady.

I ordered a set of expensive Continental GP4000s II tires from them at the beginning of August, this was the second set I have purchased from them. Both sets came with Vittoria Lite tubes. On the most recent set I was out for my first long ride on the tires this week and the tube bulged and caused the tire to dislodge and rub on the side of my bike. As a result, the tire's sidewall is ruined and I can no longer safely ride the tires after 1 ride! The tires were $80 for the set, so $40 down the drain. I contacted Merlin Cycles and while they were quick to respond, the told me I needed to send the tire and tube back to them for them to be able to do anything. This is cost prohibitive if you live outside of the UK! It will cost me at least as much as a new tire to send them via UPS. As a result, I do not recommend buying from Merlin Cycles if you live outside of the UK. While you can get a good deal on products, their warranty/return policy is not good and you have to pay for postage back to them. I should have just used Amazon at this point, I would have been net even.

I just bought a shimano groupset 105...no problem even living in Brazil I asked to delivery in the U.S and a friend brought it to me. Fast shipping. The only thing I would say I did no like, they did not send the receipt. All in All, I'd buy again

I have purchased a rockshox recon gold turn key fork plus an xtr rear derailleur and xtr shifters. Excellent service on both purchases and fantastic prices. Highly recommend!

I happened to have a great experience with Merlin. I guess some people have bad luck, etc., and take to the internet to vent with a bit of fire and drama. Got it. I ordered a set of Mavic wheels -- having them shipped to Pennsylvania, USA... three days later I had them in hand. I was shocked shipping could be this quick from the UK. Everything arrived as-stated and since then, I've put over 1,000 miles (1,600km) on them and they're still true and running flawlessly. Not only did I pay roughly 20% less than what I would have in the U.S., I didn't have to pay tax/VAT OR shipping. Would absolutely do business with them again.

I can't believe the bad reviews. I've been ordering from Merlin for about 5 years and have had one problem and they fixed it without question. I ordered a whole MTB build kit and they left out the XT shifters. They asked me to scan the invoice and send it to them, I did and had my shifters in 3 days, before I was even done building the bike. They have the best prices on pretty much everything. I just ordered $700 of road bike kit just because I was bored and the prices were so great. We'll see how they treat this purchase, as it's been a while but I have little doubt they will take great care of me. Thanks Merlin!

If I could give a 0 star I would! Customer service has been shocking! My partner has bought a bike from their website and it came faulty! We thought a call to explain this to them would resolve it and they would get it fixed but how wrong were we! All we got was rudeness and blaming. This is a genuine fault from their end and they cant even be bothered to short it out! Come on merlin this is not fair. My partners needs this bike for a big charity cycle he's doing and I was going to also buy the same bike, definitely not now! Please resolve this merlin! Fix it or refund it!

Ordered a set of Fulcrum road wheels. They arrived in Canada 10 days later! The price was great and there were no add on surprise fees. Kudos to Merlin and Spring shipping and tracking service.
