My second Merlin. I purchased the frame new and built it up with campy record and flashpoint 60 wheels. Bike rides great, climbs well and sprints just as well as my clubs carbon riders. And let us not forget the quality of a Merlin frame,still the best Ti in the business.

Strength:

Compliant, shock absorbing frame and forks (Easton EC90). Fitted with Mavic SSL Kysrium wheelset, climbs beautifully. Descends with confidence and surefooted.
Handles bumps without any problems, the frame just absorbs them.

Weakness:

Price- OUCH!, But my last bike (steel 80's) lasted 20yrs, so this one should too, thats why I bought titanium.
But no weaknesses when riding.

I have raced this bike at local and regional level. Our local road race road can only be described as very poor- lots of potholes and very poorly maintained, by local authorities. I used this bike as my regular 50km commuter too.
It is beautiful to ride- compliant, climbs effortlessly and gets up and goes when asked.

Its tough upgrading from a VW to a Porsche- not!
