This may be of interest to you :P


Thank you for the heads up sir!

I'll have to give it a miss as it's a set back. I'll probably search around the local guys for a non-set back titanium seat post.:)

Well… I usually ride a size 54. My maximum tolerance is probably 545mm top tube C-C with a 100mm stem and non-set back seat post.

This current Merlin has a 550mm C-C top tube with a 110/120mm stem. Feels pretty stretched out for me right now, but still bearable. To add on a set back seat post means I'll be pushed back a further 10mm minimal, I'm not exactly sure if I'll be able to take the gamble.

Class build and very good pics as well.

I think the carbon post looks good; goes well with the forks and cranks.

Thank you Ally!

I'm contemplating on keeping the carbon post because of the weight and the looks too. =)
