Strength:

Best of both worlds, ti & carbon together make one outstanding bicycle. Merlin makes it BEAUTIFUL! I try to ride at least a couple of centuries a year and can't wait to ride one on my Cielo! Climbs great! Opted for the triple because I like climbing hills. (NOT walking them) However, in almost 500 miles I have only used the granny once! Amazing!

Weakness:

Price is high, but worth every penny. Not many Merlin dealers around but my LBS made it happen.

Amazing!!! Have ridden a Fuji Team for several years, good stiff platform but not exactly a comfortable ride. Tested full ti and full carbon, liked both but not thrilled with either. Fell in love when I saw it over 2 years ago in Bicycling magazine, studied, read, & talked to a lot of friends/riders. Easily worth the work and wait! Did I mention that the ride is amazing!! (Beautiful too)
