Hello the screw.

I'm interrested by an old Merlin frame in 16".
The sailers say there is no bird or MERLIN scratched in stuff.
Just stickers TITANIUM.
Is it a real Merlin one, or fake...

Besides, the bottom bracket is really original, there are no thread on BB or in frame, just 2 circlips!
What is this standart, road?
not BMX it's sure.

Do you knox the diameter of seat post, i hope 27.2,
thanks for responses.
RADGAB, new forumer but old frame collector. :D


That's a Merlin. ;)

OKay, i'm happy to be sure.

Do you know the diameter of seat post?
Titanium models are made between 1990 and 1993 isn't it?
Why do they have 1"1/8e front diameter yet?

That is a stunning bike, a real inspiration!!

I'm chasing a Merlin myself at the mo! It was a friends bike that he sold to another friends brother so have been bashing the phones to see if he still has it. Am hoping he does so I can buy it and try and get it sorted before the end of the summer. :?

Hopefully i'll get it and put some pics on soon!! :shock:

Deception, steering tube is 1" and not 1"1/8e.
Average fork are 1"1/8e.
Coice is limited in one ".
Damned.

Scuse my english, i'm french and i hope to dial on your fantastic retro forum.
I 'm talking about the head tube frame, where the fork go in.
before 1997, average frame are in 1"
after this date, all frame are in 1"1/8e
I hope Merlin titanium one was already in standart size.
but i failed, it 's a 1".
And there are few fork nowadays in 1".
That"s all i mean.
good night

Just get a fork that is appropriate for the Merlin at 1". There are lots of nice examples that wouldn't be too hard to find---Tange Switchblade or Mtn Fork, Ritchey Logic, Bontrager....maybe even a Fat :)
