What year is this classic merlin???
It is a Joe Murray designed Merlin that i aquired in 1991. It has a U-brake, and I havent been able to find another like it on the web with a u-brake. the bottom bracket is threadless, and has sealed bearings pressed in. I think they started making frames in 1986. Mu guess is 1988 or 1989. Does anyone have any info??
