Have you checked the serial number with the list on the Merlin website? That would give you a definite age

Never seen one of those BB's close up, are they a press fit?

Very nice bike :D but i'm not sure about the bars either, but can't say too much as I have risers on mine too

Now that is very nice indeed.

I will take your pic as an inspiration :).

I have lost my camera charger either at my place or at my girfriends. Maybe a sign that i am getting old ? So for now i might have to cover futre prgoress with dodgy cellphone pics :(

I am still waiting for the following to arrive in the mail :

Syncros Ti Bar
Moon Units (Black)
XT M732 Wheels and Screwers
1 Inch Cable Hanger


I am trying to get repro Decals...lets see how that goes :)

That is sooooo classy, looks amazing. Wheels would look great IMO 8) an older syncros post with the hammer logo at the back would match the stem perfect too.



Oh and cool helmet 8)

Yes, the black ones, though if its going to be used alot I guess the rims could look bad after a while.
