Mens Merlin 19" Tange DB MTB. Middleburn/Thomson. Sold.


Senior Retro Guru
A very regrettable sale.

@ 2008.

26 inch wheel.

9 speed Shimano Deore shifters with new inner and outer cables..

A virtually new set of Middleburn Chain Rings. (Triple). (nearly £100).

Polished Shimano XT spider.

Brand new Shimano XTR Hollowtech II Bottom Bracket.

The frame and fork is are made from MTB Tange Butted Rifle Barrelled Tubing. It was made by Merlin.

Far superior to standard 4130 chromoly.

26 inch Mavic DH 521, 36h rims with Shimano Deore LX hubs. Probably the strongest wheel rims ever made.

Has also just had new Swiss stop all weather brake pads.

9 speed Shimano Deore rear derailleur with new genuine Shimano sealed bearing Jockey wheels.

Front derailleur is Shimano Deore with new inner and outer cable.

Tyres are Schwalbe Smart Addix 26 x 2.1 (done less than 20 miles on these).

Brand new Schwalbe inner tubes.

Rear rack.

Shimano Deore skewers.

SKS long mudguards.

Ergon Comfort grips.

MTB alloy handlebars.

Thomson X4 MTB stem.

New inner and outer cables throughout.

Really comfortable Selle saddle.

I normally ride it how you see it in the pictures but I have also had it set up without the rear rack and mudguards.

A lovely smooth ride and balanced bike.

The frame does have scratches to the Nickel finish as you would expect with a bike of this age.

Collection only from Hardwicke, Gloucester.

Social distanced pre-purchase ride is not a problem.

I would prefer payment by Bank Transfer but will take cash on collection.

Paypal payment will be accepted.


The pedals shown in the picture were given back to my mate who lent them to me. The flats in pcs 1 and 2 are the ones that will come with it.
