I agree, such a lovely bike, but a Merlin without the decals is like a Ferrari without the horse...
Great picture to show these pedals are grippy by the way :lol:

You have to keep the nerves, Rob will do it at the next bike show, so he said to me. If I would have had decals here at the show, he would have done it this year. So I looking forward to next year. But, with or without decals, it will always remain my merlin.

cheers

the beginning of the changing was, that my ritchey logic fork's left leg wasn't straight. so I'm looking for a new fork and got the track two. tbg like, merlin and kona :D

I ever want an ird stem and by my last visit in willisau, suisse, I had the chance to buy one from badbushido. I took them and so I thought, ird brakes looks good to the post and stem.....

that's all.... :wink:
