Strength:

Comfort,speed confidence,low price..if you amortize the cost over the life of the bike, as I will probably not buy an other bike.This machine is in a league of its own. The team at Multi sport bikes said my previous bike ,a KHS Flight 2000, was like a Subaru WRX,whereas the Merlin is like a Porshe.I agree.

Weakness:

None except for initial cost. My wifes new kitchen will have to wait for another month or 2!

It is difficult to describe the great ride this bike offers. I am reasonably large for a cyclist at 6'2" and weighing 94kgs so climbing is always a challenge. I do some long rides with a group of like minded friends most of who ride Lightspeeds or KHS 2000's,and I needed a bike that offered comfort and speed over long distances. Riding the new Merlin Extralight gives the smoothest ride over harsh New Zealand roads I have ever experienced. It responds immediatly to power on the pedals and I would not have believed the difference Titanium could have made. It is a joy to ride. Warning.Do not test ride as it will spoil you for anything less.

Similar Products Used:

KHS Flight 2000 with Carbon on the front and rear.This was my second bike and was great until I rode the Merlin.
