Merlin Metalworks ~
30 years ago Merlin built the first contemporary titanium road and mountain bikes and revolutionized the sport. An unsurpassed strength-to-weight ratio and toughness along with superb physical properties at lower weights give titanium the unique ability to absorb road shock while retaining excellent torsional stiffness to resist pedaling loads. Add titanium's phenomenally high fatigue strength plus the fact that it doesn't rust or corrode, and there is simply no better frame material choice.
Ultimately, titanium's biggest benefit is that it enables you to have more fun and get more enjoyment out of your bike and your riding experience. And, with greater dependability and durability than any other frame material. For many of us, that's what it's all about.
Headsets are not included. Merlin frames accept all 1 1/8" threadless, non-integrated (non-hidden) headsets. Any headset purchased with a Merlin frameset will be machined and installed with no labor charge. Headsets
Last of the genuine Merlin titanium frames ~
Due to the sudden drop in titanium demand, American Bike has decided to sell the iconic Merlin brand name. However, ALL of our remaining Merlins are the genuine, real-deal, each one handmade in Tennessee. If you see your fit then grab one because these are the very last of the genuine Merlins, the frames that forever changed cycling.
