Thanks .

Very bad weather to do nice pics :(

I have to paste the second Extralight decal on top tube , but I search a method not to miss her pose, it is a original Merlin and rare ..

I mixed old and new logo , I prefer the old MERLIN logo ..

I love that bike, Much better with the classic decals.

I own a Merlin extralight 1996 size 57, and it weights 7,7 kg with triple crankset and Steelman fork. Campy Record and Campy Neutron. I cannot believe the weight you achieved. It's GREAT!!!!

They don't get much better than this but i do think you can go to lightweight as there is a less physical challenge of moving the bike and less fitness gained,but i would still have one though.

Possibly the most beautiful two wheeled object ever created.

Sublime.

hi garyturner,
beautiful bike/frame and equally brilliant setup. gorgeous!!!
i'm new to this forum and i own a 2004 Merlin Magia.
just wondering if you got the frame year of your extralight correct 2009?
in fact i'm kinda hunting for an Extralight now and it seems there's such a huge variation in the year of manufacturing. i'm particularly interested in the year where the extralight has the s shaped/hourglass seatstay and chainstay. would you happen to know what year model that is? Anyone???
thanks very much.

Nice looking Merlin. How's the handling with that stem? It looks short..

Now gone http://www.bikeshepherd.org/bikes/view/ag5zfmJpa2VzaGVwaGVyZHINCxIEQmlrZRiq-v0CDA, and this thread has made me sad.

Since Merlin is no more, and having the longest rebirth in history, what would people suggest as a replacement? Moots?

If you see a used 56cm cyrene for sale, it's probably mine!
