picked this up tonight from neil7, felt so bad as he didnt want to sell but unfortunate knee problems have dealt him a cruel blow bike riding wise.....
cracking guy who loves his bikes as much as the rest of us on here, and it was nice chatting with him today, we even went over his local fields on the bikes for a test ride.
december 2009, one of the last merlin built jones, not sure how many are in the UK, maybe another 4 or 5. think there were 75 made worldwide so not something you will see regulary.
also came with single speed cog and custom mudguards front and rear.
stopped off at evans cycles on the way home as i was desperate for a seat, was going to buy a basic charge spoon, but they had a single titanium railed one in my colour, result!
anyway heres some quick pics as i stuck the wheels on, and before i have set it up to my body.........enjoy
