    Merlin Malt, beautifully resprayed

    It sure does! It has a little glitter in it too, so it glitters on a sunny day too!

    A wizardly Merlin Malt (build - finished)

    Just received some DMR V6 pedals in black to put on this bike. I've also decided to put the Schwalbe semi-slick tyres on instead of the Maxxis ones.

    Personally, I like the simplicity of it.

    Unknown 24 Seven Jump bike build

    That looks gorgeous! I always wanted a 24seven bike. I had those exact cranks, and I thought it hilarious that they came in a foil "takeaway" container. I remember blaming the cranks for my frame breaking: the frame was a GT Timberline, so not very robust, but every time I landed, it felt like...

    Hehe, yeah! I've never seen that before! It looks like just the right colour. Actually, the derailleur would be nice. I bought gold jocket wheels for my derailleur, but they ended up being the wrong gold 🤦‍♀️

    A wizardly Merlin Malt (build - finished)

    And the finished bike! :) The bike was mostly used parts. The only new parts are the bottle cages, grips, valve caps and the bottom bracket. I'm very pleased with my first paintjob, and particlarly being able to apply the colours to multiple parts. The ride isn't perfect: it's light and stiff...

    Building the bike. Shimano cassette, Avid Single Digit Ti rear brake. During the build, I discovered the rigid fork was actually a road bike fork! I had no idea until I tried to fit the brake and it didn't line up with rim. I was absolutely gutted, having spent so much time painting it, and it...

    Here is the headset and cranks. The cranks look spectacular! The headset is okay. The lettering was done with letraset (retro!). I kinda just did that so I didn't forget what brand the headset was. Spraying the headset just sort of happened after I realised the spraying was easier than I thought...

    Hi folks, sorry I haven't updated this. I didn't really have the energy to do so. However, the bike is finished now, so here are the rest of the build photos. Here is the frame after spraying, decals and clear coat.

    'Minty' Orange - '96 C16R

    I never would have thought of putting those colours together, but it looks really nice!

    A wizardly Merlin Malt (build - finished)

    After peeling off the stencils, the forks look really nice! The stars have come out really neatly. I added the Specialized decals to the rigid fork, so that's done, apart from top coat. I'll probably do most of the top coats at the same time. I have also sprayed the purple on the frame and...

    That's so sleek!

    A wizardly Merlin Malt (build - finished)

    Next up was spraying the gold on the forks. I also decided to spray the stem I'll be using. It was black, and in nice condition, but I decided it would be fun to get a bit more colour coded with the components as well. My previous build was only really colour-co-ordinated on frame and fork, with...
