Great looking bike and lovely photos!
As above. I always fancied a Merlin MTB back in the 90's, I really like the combination of the red and the grey. Reminds me of some of the Specialized stumpy's back then too.
Actually I'm mistaken, something like this green one with Umma Gumma's. Anyway the Merlin rocks, top work.
so nice, i really want a pair of these bars, are they hard to come by?
The model I think was called - Scott Drop-in 2.
If you search for
Scott Drop-in handlebars on eBay you will find them.
Is there a function to them other than more variety of hand positions?
See post #18 on the previous page:
It's a typical bar from the era when all sorts of aerodynamic experiments were done. In theory Scott figured that it would provide the rider with an aerodynamic position with a low torso and the arms close to the head tube. In reality it proved to be a platform to show that they sponsored Greg Lemond (the only rider in the European pro scene who used these bars, though I've never seen him actually use the extensions).
I've actually seen a pair of these advertised recently on an Irish website. Would it be against the rules to post a direct link?
I had a pair on my courier bike in 1997/8. Slightly embarrassed to say I eventually cut them down.
Noooo, where are the drop ins!?!?
I was hoping you’d have added one of the extensions for the drop ins!
I moved them to this project...
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
