XL Merlin CR Works

Posted on
  • It’s in my shed looking forlorn (I’m spoiled with too many bikes) so thought I’d see if anyone wants to rescue it.

    Merlin Works 3/2.5 frame with Columbus Tusk Light fork (only a few rides old), decent King headset and Thomson seat clamp. I fitted older Merlin decals as the original ones are a hot mess. No dents or cracks and as ti no scratches or other blemishes.

    Size is XL with a 58.5cm top tube and 18.5cm head tube. Geometry is semi compact so seat tube is 55cm. Fits me fine at 6’2” and got me up (and down!) Ventoux and round L-B-L with no problems (well, no problems with the bike).

    Looking for £675 UK posted (also have a 10s carbon Centaur groupset or a silver 10s Rival groupset if buyer is keen plus various posts, stems, bars, wheels etc)

    NOW £650 POSTED

  • Why do you have to be so tall?

    Good luck with the sale. Top chap to deal with so whoever snags this isn’t going to be disappointed. T

  • Oh man, if only this month wasn’t so steep

  • If you’re keen I’m happy to take a small deposit, remove it from sale and put it by until next month

  • If only it could have been a L size

  • Damn, that is a very nice move but I shall resist.

  • What is the purpose of temptation if it’s not something to yield to 😀

  • Photo of it built up

  • Edit - no idea why it posted twice!!!

  • What is the saddle height in that pic and how tall are you Big Ted, assuming quite.

  • Bike is down to frame and fork but can confirm saddle height from another bike tomorrow.

    In terms of height, I’m 6’2” and tend to ride pretty tall for my height

  • Cheers

  • Ok, centre b/b to top of saddle is 83cm or thereabouts in the build photo above

  • Reduced to £650 posted

  • that is lovely but i am 6 foot 6 !!!!!! aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...too small for lanky leg me. GLWTS

  • It's like Goldilocks here, too big for some, too little for others!!

    Fingers crossed there will be someone for whom it is just right.
