I realise the photo's are awful but I'm too technophobic to do any better at the moment. I'm not quite sure what I've got truth be told, I'm guessing a late 90's poss early 00's Merlin ti rock lobster cyclocross frame. It certainly looks like one doesn't it, serial no. H758, can anybody confirm and potentially date it? Any aficionados?

...nice find. Sadly, with this sort of frame don't expect answers to come rushing in. I know it
doesn't sound right but on the MTB side there must be a Rock Lobster fan boy.

Yes I would agree it is a Merlin Cycles (the U.K. bikeshop) , Rock Lobster.

I purchased one sometime late 99 - 2000. Never built it up as decided the frame size was not right for me.

Took mine the Bicycle Workshop in Bristol, and traded it for Pace RC30 forks , RC45 stem and some beer money.

Seemed liked a really cool, frame wish I'd given it a go riding around. Have fun building it up
