Do you still have the Ritchey fork?

The build is perfect as it is. I didn´t even check the rest of the thread. XTR m900, syncros ti , ritchey fork.. the classic build for a merlin. There is nothing to better.

Just get other tires and ride it. Go w/ a 2.3 tire upfront. Ritchey fork is higher end than the Kona . I would go w/ megabite tires. 2.1 and 2.3.

Hi guys,
the bike I finished riding a long time ago, but I can't find where I put the photos. I'll do it again, no problem
in this period the esoteric components put it on display in a glass case near the bike, and the mtb mounts full m900
stay tuned
