It's silly light! Once I've finished bolting bits on and off I'll get her on the scales. Big fan of the Lefty now. Always wanted to try one and had been looking at normal Fatty's before it rocked up. Glad I held off.

It's all kinda coming together! Thinking ti Eggbeaters, maybe XTR rear mech and shifters?
I'll post up a spec list soon.

Stunning frame, looking forward to the rest of this build. Just put a rare yeti terquoise blue ringle bottle cage and matching mint ti twister ringle Skewers on Ebay today that would have looked perfect on a classy yeti build like this.

Had a bit of a mixed life with my Merlin.
Awesome ride... the one i've been on! The bearings in the headset are shot and found that the cap that holds the forks in place (like a headset cap but on the bottom) was rounded off at the allen key :evil:
New cap sourced, had to Dremal the s*±t out of the old one to get it off and she's now back at the LBS awaiting some new bearings!
Had new cable outers popped on and she's almost done. I do need some XTR callipers as its running Magura callipers with XTR leavers. They work fine but the cables are to short now i'm running a riser bar.
The only other dilemma i have is I've landed a new Job in Australia! Do i ship her out with me or do i sell???
