It's a Pinarello. There's been a couple of beautiful examples on ebay over the last year.

Beautiful Merlin and some great shots
These frames handle great off-road but you will need a fork

I'm actually quite enjoying using this as a road bike. I see it as a kinda road bike equivalent of an '84 Town Car: not real light, fast, or sharp handling, but oh the ride is so smooth and quiet!


That's my "backyard" road loop, the Victoria waterfront. It's very scenic.

Everytime a dream for me.
Nice the italian fork. It is sexy, maybe not at frame level...Go for something more special.

My compliments

Beautiful bike! Funny to see your pics in Beacon Hill Park, I was just up at the flagpole last weekend, well you saw my Mile '0' shot. Do you still have this Merlin?
