Beautiful Merlin :D

What's the seat and top tube lengths? How does she ride? I think the Ritchey fork fits nicely with that frame, good work.

Yesterday I found a new pic in the german classic forum from Rob V. and me and my Merlin

I'm looking forward to next year to meet Rob again. He said that he will come back again.

Cheers
