No rush whatsoever - lemme know if/when it's available! Want to find something that'll last her, & she's perfectly happy riding her current bike 'til then :)

I have a retro (93 - 94 ish) Fisher Tyro 24" wheel MTB which is 11.5 inch. It was bought for my daughter when I lived in Japan, the geometry is good (rear wheel close to seat stem for good climbing ability). The headset is 1 1/4 Evolution style and the forks are rigid. I'm looking for about £100 plus delivery (or pick-up from MK).

Cheers

Matt

Thanks, but that's probably a bit tooo small! Want to stick with 26" wheels :)

Ziggy,

I have a 1989 Kona Lava Dome in yellow with red, black and white splatters if interested. I can do frame and forks, and maybe some other bits too. Don't think I can quite manage complete bike. It is for 26" wheels, and is 16" frame.

Let me know if interested.

Tim

Looks like it'd do the job... Any chance you could take a tape measure to it? I'm in Dorset - where abouts in Cornwall are you, or are you ever anywhere nearer this direction?

the merlin frame is 17" from bottom of BB to top of seat tube,

i do have a smaller frame which is around 13" or 14" but its more based on trials, i have a pic in my gallery on site, its the blue and silver onza, its a bit more expensive and is fitted with a brand new tryall splined BB which cost me £50.

i live in redruth in cornwall, i dont travel up to dorset
