no one. Jeff has stopped production as a result. The waiting list was between 7 and 10yrs long too!

Remember well a young Jeff Jones cruising the floor working along side Gary Turner at GT back in "the day".

Only for custom frame is the wait this long, he expects to be up and running again with off the shelf frames before the end of the year.

e-mail from Jeff tonight:

Hi Richard,



It’s too bad Neil had to sell his bike. It’s a good one. There were just about 100 frames made by Merlin for me. Around 75 were Spaceframes.

I don’t know off the top of my head how many went where. Only a few were built into complete bikes by me. Most went as frame sets.



Call me sometime and we can discuss the fit, function and any questions you may have about the bike.



Enjoy your rides.
