G'day, i used to race for my lbs when i was 10-15 and stopped tri/road racing and went to mtb stuff instead when i was 16 and i'm now back on the road with my road bike again! Not racing but cruising with style!

I ride a custom litespeed that was built 10 years ago for my mtb and my latest project ww bike is based on my old racing road bike which is a merlin extralite. I'm not sure what year it is but it is designed by Rob so i'm guessing pre 1998. (i was 15 then so the tech stuff wasn't a big deal and riding is all you remember at that age)

The usual stuff is on it like full record, easton, look and etc.

Well, that is it from me now and nice to meet all of ya!

Frame: Merlin Extralite 47cm
Fork: Easton SL for 1"

Cassette: Record full ti 12-25 and tiso lockring
Calipers: Zero G Ti-06
Crank: Record carbon with TA horus chain ring and ti crank bolts
BB: Record carbon

(i have the 07 record on back order as i'm having trouble with my cranks/bb and you can see the whole story on my other thread titled "problem with record crank/bb" on the road forum)

Pedals: Look Keo Ti
Wheels: Topolino Revelation C19 (everyday wheels) and AMC Mag300 (with ceramic bearings), custom dt 1.1. rims with tune hubs and ti spokes (that is what i might build in the near future once i can settle my crank problems)

What I meant was that its such a nice bike, I duno, I just like seeing good bikes raced I guess...Frame looks damn good, though I'm not a fan of the toppolino's (on reputation)

Well thanks but life is alittle crazy to be racing and you can't earn jack with that anyway. So it is just for hobby and nothing else.
