    - tks... but no, actually true... the Fortius was a low-end Merlin (as in lower cost)... my model is not painted... non-integrated headset (what i wanted in a Ti bike)... straight seat stays, but thicker curved chainstays...

    - geometry is nearly identical to the now-defunct Magia! (a real bonus!)

    :-)

    p.s. i'll never, ever sell this bike...

    I know, I just though it funny for I would never think of a Merlin as Low-end, it's like the inverse of High-end Huffy




    Can I post another?

    S. Squirrel; Sweet looking Classic! Nice & clean.

    Nitro & BayArea; I have always thought that an FJ40 would be real sweet with a carbon body. None of the stinkin fiberglass stuff, go carbon, cut the weight way down,.... you know the deal. But that is for a different forum.

    Polished titanium doesn't seem as popular as the brushed or natural finishes. I think that people identify the tag "titanium" or even "stainless steel" with a flat, gray metal. (Just an observation) Monkeys and children like "shiny" things. I wonder which category I fall into.

    I picked up a polished classic over the winter & am mildly redoing it. Yours gives me a target to shoot for. I also prefer the plished look. I think I fall into the "child" categroy. My wife would say the "monkey" category. I quess the opinion of others varies between the two.

    I was beginning to wonder if i was the only one with a Merlin! I'd post a picture, but i dont have a camera of any sorts. Well, i have a webcam, but the quality etc wouldnt do justice to the bike. I love looking at how neat the welds are, and then look at some of the ugly welds on the other bikes in the Bike Room of my dorm. Haha....

    Thanks, I'll pass the word onto my IF. It could use some love right now. It definitely is not happy with me for putting it aside for a couple of months. It's used to being my primary bike.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I'm thinking perhaps my next bike will be a Litespeed.....if they fit right.

    I don't get this. Why not get a Seven? Better bike, made to fit you!!

    kidding

    Your Serotta and all the other rides are beautiful. ViperZ, please post your first ride report and px when it warms up--from some of your other posts I get the feeling you have a hankering to do a classic build? i can't wait. . . (drools vicariously)

    Where's the frame?

    All I see, is wheels and a big seatpost.

    True. At what point in compact geometry does one describe the bike as a Ritchey with Litespeed components?

    Hi,

    I'm cheating a bit because I sold this frame last September:



    I liked it well enough but I like the fit and geometry of my Looks better.
    Thanks.
