I'm considering parting with my Merlin frameset, which is a 2005 model in 51cm (geometry here: http://www.merlinbike.com/bikes/2005/ge ... light&k=rd

Nothing wrong with it, in fact I would say it's the best road frame I ever had but then again it's the only one I ever owned! Comfortable, springy, won't break, lasts forever etc ...

Weighs 1170gm (2.58lbs) which is about next to nothing. Comes with a black King headset that will last as long as the frame, and Real full carbon forks cut for tall stem + spacers, all of which have had 15 month use - at speed but never crashed or dinged :).

Frame only retailed at £2.2k, would sell frameset for £990. Based around Londinium. Photos on request

I'm away for xmas time from tonorrow night but i'll try sort you some pics tonight even though they might not be great.

There are a few action shots from last Saturday here

http://www.dgs-photography.co.uk/cyclin ... 06&Index=1

You'll have to scroll through the 10+ pages and spot me in a yellow/black "Addiscombe" top with white arms. I think there are a couple decent side-views.

I also have another friend who's interested in it.

Cheers

I'm 5ft 6 1/2 BTW
