I thought I post my build list. I have a 2000 Merlin Extralight (a real Merlin :wink: ) that I've been riding for a few years. Currently it has a 9sp D/A group and Open Pros... It weights 16.5lbs now. I've been accumulating parts and aside from the wheels ( which have shipped) and the brakes I've got all the parts to build it up. Here is my build list. I've weighted all parts aside from the wheels and brakes which I have not recieved yet. Comments??

Cheers,

Do you just buy new components when they get dirty?

Is the lack of dust caps a ww thing?

The cooker in the background doesn't half look heavy!


Sensible posts to follow . . . :lol:
