Merlin only sells that as a complete bike with a suggested retail of: $5500.00.
I think I read somewhere that it was going to be a Limited Edition, but I don't know that as a fact. What did the web site say?
No one I know has one, so can't comment on the ride etc. Both my Agilis and Mountain Merlins, ride like dreams come true. I would suspect the Newsboy does also.

$5500.00 USDollars, IS merlin's suggested price. When I asked what the web site said, I was referring to the Limited Edition statement.

Mountain Bike magazine said it's one of the best bikes they've ever ridden.

I guess it's quite good then!

Looks like a piece of art to me...would love to give one a go...
