It's what they called an "Elevator" :wink: old riding pal of mine bought one made to measure, direct from Merlin, BITD, went over to the 'States and had himself measured and watched it being built, (think it took nearly a week to build) then rode it for a week around Socal's best trails.
Frame only back then, was a staggering 4800 Sterling. They were prone to pedal induced bob though, but he always kept up with everyone else!

i do have a set of stunning grafton cranks for that, if you did decide to build in a similar way to the 5k mag review,.?


Not sure on which cranks they are? Do you have any pics and a link to the mag review?

The link I posted was the review :)

MRGRUMPY: The Firestone air bladder one was a one-off, this one had an elastomer shock. Still impressively rare.
