Hi,

After a long search I finally found a Merlin Extralight in my size. I always wanted a Merlin roadie, and hasn´t dissapointed me!
The set up is modern, with a 7900 Dura Ace, R-Sys wheels, and little more. The weight is very good, around 7kg, but with another handelbar and pedales will go to 6,9-6,8kg! Not bad for a bike with 16 years, and not an ultralight setup.

It rides really well, even I might preffer my IF Crown Jewel with a 7800 Dura ace, it works far better!

And now the pics, hope you like it ;)
