Ltd. Edition Newsboy

Robin Williams, an avid cyclist and collector of exotic bicycles, owned a Merlin Newsboy, and now you can too. Starting in 2019, Merlin will be offering eight (8) limited edition Newsboys. Each and every Newsboy will be custom made specifically for the customer. An homage to freewheeling ‘50s, this unique bike melds the aesthetics of a classic beach cruiser with the latest cycling technology for an unforgettable ride.


 
 

Innovative BY DESIGN

Designed utilizing custom, hand contoured tubes, the Newsboy has a distinctive shape of a classic cruiser with all the accoutrements of a top-flight mountain bike.

Cold Worked Titanium

The careful shaping and cold working of the tube set results in a 45% increase to the titanium's remarkable strength, enhancing bottom bracket stiffness while delivering a smooth, comfortable ride.

Best in Class Finish

The Newsboy’s beautifully engraved head tube badge, best in class finish, and meticulous welds are a testament to Merlin's commitment to frame quality and esthetics.
