Can't take credit for the BoTM choice, good to have something different though.

My Merlin Mountain was originally the race bike of a Graham Warby, it was bought by myself from his father and what follows is what I was told at the time of purchase

It was bought for his son Graham at the age of 15 in 1993 when he showed promise as an XC rider. It was raced with some success and the Royce stickers show who his sponsor were. Apparently the small number sticker on the top tube were from an early world championship, not sure which one though.

It was updated in 2002 for Graham to resume his racing career, but was superceded by a carbon Scott. I did have the originally fitted Pace RC30's, but I prefer the SIDS it now sports since its refurb

I do not personally know Graham Warby, but from google it seems he still races in the masters series and maybe someone on here may know him. If so please let him know his bike is in good hands and well looked after, also how obviously proud his dad was too, albeit a bit sad to see the bike go

Cheers
Rich
