8) congrats from one Merlin owner to another. If that seatpost isn't titanium, then yeah, I'd try a black one over silver. ;)

Lovey Merlin. I like the idea of a black seatpost or ti seatpost and ti stem. But it looks great.

Great bike.
This will probably not go down well with the locals on this site but I urge you to fit a modern fork with 4ins travel and ride it.
The combination of classic hardtail combined with up to date kit gives the ultimate ride.
My Merlin came to life with a fox up front.
Keep your current forks for shows and gatherings of course.:D

Love that nice Merlin bike.

normal flite, black syncros post, black grips. now need to fit a silver H20 and figure out which brake pads work best with the ceramic rims.
Any suggestions?

oh I forgot, I replaced the 555 mm Titec bar with a 580 J & L one. Not as pretty, but much more control :wink:
