Looking to Trade my Merlin
 
Seriously thinking about getting rid of my frameset, just no digging the geometry so I wanted to see if there was anything worth trading for. Mine is a 2003 Merlin Fortius in amazing condition with Cane Creek headset and seatpost clamp. 50cm st 54cm tt 12.5cm ht. Looking for a steel lugged frame 55-57 st 55-56 tt 27.2 seat post and english thread. Really interested in American builders, Davidson or Kvale would be perfect.

Being unfamiliar with sloping TT geometries- is this something equal to a 54 x 56 level TT bike?

Yeah I think so, it just feels like to much saddle to stem drop.

This may help. I believe this had the same geo as the Agilis.

Been there....but worked it out

You ride my size.... if you'd like, I can send you the fitting specs from my Wraith. figure you're a 5-10 cm longer reach.,,,maybe make it work. I only sold the Wraith because a collector wanted it, as I plan on another.

It does look too small. Shame the steerer is not 10mm longer.
