i've been looking for a vit t frame and forks for a while.
i think jezza's valuation is nearer the mark though.
i'll give this one a miss.

Nice, doesn't look like it gets ridden much though.
Vit T frames handle great but are quite flexy, Orange chose the tubing to absorb some of the trail buzz rather than an out and out race bike like a merlin. Means its a great all day ride but if your a heavy rider you might find it too noodly.

I like the quote I heard recently from 1 of the 3 founding fathers of merlin
..quote from Gary Helfrich that "the Merlin is essentially a Ti Yo Eddy"
:D
sorry wrong of me to be big upping FAT on a orange thread :wink:

I'm now smiling for no apparent reason as the owner of an XLM - you've just saved me the cost of buying a Yo Eddy :D
