TESTED: Starling Cycles Murmur 29 review – Flow Mountain Bike

Here’s one out of left field! The all-steel, single-pivot Starling Murmur proves that a back to basics approach to suspension design, coupled with great geometry can go head to head with any carbon super bike on the market. It’s not the bike for everyone, but there are plenty of steel fans who will go bananas for this one.

Brian Richards says:

what is it like under hard cornering, does it wind up and then oversteer or go full noodle or does it stay straight

I met the guy who owns the company and makes the bikes himself. He had a stand at the Ard Rock and everyone seemed to pass him by and go to the Big Brand stands. Me and my mate chatted to him for a good while. Top bloke making some really nice bikes. This is the first time I’ve seen a review of his stuff. Good work lads.

TT looks high so not the best for stand over. Trail looks like narrabeen, would have been a test to pedal to the top..

You youngsters can keep your plastic….. I’ll take good ol’ steel or aluminium!

Enjoy watching your videos and another good review . Here in the UK the Starling Murmur is a big hit and in group tests with bikes from the big brands the Murmur often comes out on top
