And the winner was............

Drum roll.........

Erm, neither of them!
I was about to go for the XLM (the 93 has been reduced BTW to USD 1150) when my nemesis cropped up for sale. I've been after a Xizang for as long as I can remember so when a 98 frame appeared for sale I had to have it. $750 incl shipping and my mate will bring it over in a few months when he's next in the UK on business. Long term it will cost me a lot more, as we all know it's cheaper to buy a full bike than do build - but we see them come up so rarely I had to go for it.

I can supply further info on either of the 2 Merlins should anyone be interested. The 93 is in Portland and is a private sale, the XLM in California and being sold by an LBS there.

Anyway, this is the Xizang. It's going to be a long build, mainly due to lack of money and I'll start a build thread once received.

Nice frame Tony, going to be a lovely build I’m sure when it arrives. It’s like being a kid waiting for Christmas isn’t it waiting for a frame to arrive from across the pond ;)
