Freshly built the Merlin, but really it was a wee too small me. But I liked the disc brakes. I love riding my green DK, but was getting bored of V brakes.
So....plan F or P lost count.

Disc brake Dekerf is the way forward...totally the same size as my (not mine anymore green DK) but disc only. Prefer the colour of my (nmagDK) but the Platinum or is it Pewter Grey is quite nice.

I have been scratching my head about that all day...the steerer is too short.

I could JUST about get them to fit with a Tune Bobo headset, they WILL fit with a Cranks Bros headset but reports suggest their bearings are made of cheese.

I may just put some 100mm forks on.

I just do not know yet :? :lol:
