Merlin Malt R
Merlin have these bikes for a knockdown price of £499 and thinking of incurring the wife's wrath by buying one.
I want a sportive-esque bike and have about £600 to spend. They're well specc'd for the money. Should I buy a 'bigger' brand like Specialized, Giant or Felt (the ones my LBS carry)or tread my own path and buy the Malt?
I tried a Felt Z95 and a Giant Defy, and they felt pretty good. Hoping to further annoy the missus and drive up to Chorley on Sat to try the Malt.
Cheers in advance.
