Yes, I know I've only just brought it - with the house moving costs starting to come through I'm re-evaluating whether I need another project bike.

1993 (ish) Merlin Mountain titanium frame - cantilever brake only, press-fit bottom bracket. Has recently been renovated and re-decalled (as an XLM), but has a few small (non-structural) dings to the top tube and downtube. Will rode beautifully and build into anything you want - stealth town bike, singlespeed, or highly usable retrobike.

Weighs 4lbs including BB and seatpost binder. Measures 21" centre to top on the seattube and 23.5" centre to centre toptube.

Will be very well packed for transport.

£175 plus delivery, or can be collected from West London.

If this doesn't sell by the end of the week I'll keep it!

Knock 5" off the seatube and I'll come pick it up today!

Why are these things always too big?

Too cheap. No one will believe you're serious about selling!
