Ok folks I seem to remember a Mongoose advert (MBA 90,91) for a frame with ti main tubes and a cromo back end (4130). Did I imagine it or was this bike actually produced? If so does anybody out there have one? I even think it was a Johnny T signature.

It was made by Merlin for Mongoose. Johnny T did race one for a bit.

Cool thanks for that I am not going mad. Now all we need to do is find someone with one. I remember it being the nicest thing ever.

You're from Cheltenham right? Do you remember a small bike shop called Chicken Rock?

The owner there used to ride one, he sold it to one of my mates and we regularly thrashed it about Leckhampton and Cleeve hill, you may have seen one already and not even known it :)

Not many around these days though.

After its stint in Cheltenham, the owner moved to California where it did him well on the trails over there, then it was sent to a friend in Switzerland where it played in the mountains for a bit. Last I heard, it was sold but I don't know who to so the trail goes cold I'm afraid. It certainly stood up well though.

I'll call him and ask if he still has it :)

Kudos to Merlin sounds like they were built to last.

Be interesting to see where it is now.

Are there anymore out there in the Uk??
