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 :)


The fork "ll be a Skyde fork 1" titanium, Ronnie Calvet is a very cool man and made good products.
sunday, i ask to Merlin the model with the serie number.
look the answer:

Gabriel,

This appears to be an early model XLM MTB frame. It is hard for me to pinpoint exactly from your pictures and the records that remain from this time but this does appear to be a Merlin frame.

Thank you,

Zach Spinhirne-Martin

So, by Merlin, it's not a titanium one, it's a XLM model.
SATISFACTION...

Yes, with the same pics on this forum, you find quikly the model and give me more info than Merlin.
Merlin, has been?
Merlin failed, that's sure.

But i don't buy this frame to cath it under glass.
I want to ride on it.
So I'll make some welded:
IS disc support, 1"1/8e headset and BB30
I look for master welded to injury my frame.

radgab... you should really start up your own thread as opposed to cluttering up someone elses since what you have posted really has no relevancy to their bike.

but yes, those are Merlin asymmetric chain stays:

if i have, i didn't mean to come across rude, but this is about his 1992 Merlin, not 1992 Merlin in general. if you want to talk about your 1992 Merlin, then you should start your own thread discussion to be polite.

if you want to talk about 1992 Merlin in general, then you should post in the MTB Chat section, as this is the Reader's MTB section.
