Bit of a long shot but does anyone have a Merlin Malt 3 19" frame laying around?

or a good alternative?

I'm looking to change the frame of my current bike as it is too small:

P.s. I have a caliper half and a 40+ adapter on its way for the rear, ready for a disc ready frame.

Many thanks.

Thank you very much for the information!

I have, however, just ordered one of these: http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/sp/mtb-bm ... IBBFRAM200

Looks nigh on identical to the Merlin but has the all important v brake mounts.

Yeah it looks good doesn't it.

To be honest though the main reason for purchasing this frame as it looks very universal parts wise. This means I can slowly upgrade my components to a point where I can justify fitting them onto a on one 456. :)
