I have to say, I had some Trimnell forks, they are lovely.

This Decade is something speical, but then so is your Merlin.

I like them both, I had a Litespeed Ti which, I so nearly finished, but got frustrated.

lovely frame, would look nice with champagne XC Pro ? :D

i think this bike deserves the xtr treatment, i have found with retrobike, sometimes we have to sacrifice 1 thing for another, hence the merlin is the donor for the xtr kit.

just took the dynatech for a quick ride, and apart from some brake squeel & a minor issue with the front mech, it was very nice to ride.
the riding position is quite comfortable.
i took a few pics. enjoy.
jeff.

did my first commute to work today, i seem to have ironed out the kinks.
i am very impressed with the x lite saddle, probably the comfiest saddle i have ever sat on.
all in all a nice bike to ride.
it was nice passing a guy on a dawes road bike.
