May as well pop this here....although it is covered elsewhere in the forum.

Just bought this from Ray who posted it for sale on the site. Exactly as described......the bike was built around 1997, delivered to his house, and for various reasons, that's where it stayed for 11ish years under a dust cover.

Never ridden.

Spec as follows

1996/7 Merlin XLM
Pace RC36
Syncros Stem
Syncros Ti Seatpost
Mavic Crossmax
Full M950 Groupset inc. Ti Cassette
Girvin Ti Pedals
Titec Ti Bars
X-lite Bar Ends...best I have ever seen...were there different ones available then?
Ringle Bottle Cages

That one looks pretty nice....
How could I miss that..:)

Are you going to ride it or is it a new garagequeen?

Cheers,
Martin
