    Strengths:    Balance, stiff but friendly ride, fun, fast, great looking paint

    Weaknesses:    That nice paint ain't powdercoat, it chips

    Bottom Line:   
    Since 1990 I have been buying bikes for resale. I've bought container loads from Taiwan and special one-offs from Ellsworth. So many bikes have been thru my shed I don't talk about it. This frame is one of two that stand out from the rest. Normally I keep frames for maybe 6 months but this bike isn't going anywhere. A brand new Intense Spider hangs beside the Dekerf and is used half as much as the Dekerf. Its fun on the road, down the steep and nasty and everything in between. If you are looking for a hardtail to do it all look no further

    Just wanted to share some pics of my new steel hardtail. On the wet, muddy clay trails of Hertfordshire it certainly beats using the full bouncer. Don't know much about it - the Reynolds 853 steel tubed frame is apparently designed by a Paul Sadhoff. (Anyone heard of him?). Merlin cycles in Lan ... Read More »

    Rock Lobster Team Tig 853

    Does anyone out there (probably in the UK) have a Rock Lobster Team Tig with the Reynolds 853 steel frame - sold by Merlin Cycles in the UK? The 2008 model looks like really good value with full XT groupset and a Reba Team fork, but how does it handle? What are it's weaknesses and strengths? An ... Read More »
