I'm not usually one to post these kinds of threads, but I'm thinking about getting into mountain biking and what seems like a pretty sweet deal on a Merlin Unicoi fell into my lap recently. The size is right, and it's equipped with the American Flag series SRAM grip shift components as well as spinergy mountain wheels and hydraulic V-Brakes, but I'm not sure of the fork.
Asking price is 750, any thoughts?
Specialized Tricross, Allez steel, Transition, 2009 Bighit 3, Lightspeed Owl Hollow and Kitsuma - and a couple others
Litespeed made the Unicoi - not Merlin. I am guessing the bike and components are 10+ years old. Hate to see you spend 750 on a bunch of old worn out stuff. Could be a good deal if it fit you perfectly, you loved it and it had very low usage.
