Everyone...

Apologies for the late transmission but I have been looking (and looking) to find these...

A half cooked Merlin for me on 120122364040
An AMP for me on 260118451160
A GT RTS for me and the other half on 180118798875

A GT Avalanche for my son (7 and growing!) on 300114098390
A Kona Expolsif Pro 1992 (for me!) on 270122450682

I REALLY am looking for another build here but DO NOT want to up against any of you guys... if anyone is bidding on these PLEASE let me know. I can only afford 1 or perhaps 2 of these (re: redundancy package!) but as you can see by my only other bike my choices are somewhat (shall we say) strange! I would like a proper bike at some point... never can find a Pace when you want one!

Thx, Mark

We are not giants!

I am 5' 7"
Partner Is "around" 5' 6"

The little man will be our height at some scary close date!

Okay... we are both short a***s!

Frame advice much appreciated!

Thx,

Mark

Can't access e-bay at work, is the AMP the B4 in the UK at the moment?

Was thinking about it, but i'm really after a B5, with the carbon extras, and seem to be stockpiling amp disc brakes now :? so bid away

AMP's are good for smaller people, the B4/B5 frame has massive crutch clearence :wink:

B3 - the 1997 B4 is indeed in the UK, Gloucester.

If you've bid or are aware of anyone else bidding I am only too happy to back off, certainly don't want to step on anyones toes!

Nope, decided not to bid, cancelled the snipe, so go for it. It's a nice looking bike.
