I'm considering buying a Merlin Cielo frame, i have two questions.
The first, I noticed that most of the bikes have a standard detailing around the Titanium, however the one i'm looking at has something a little different (see photo) any ideas why this is?
Also I know its a very individual thing, but sizing, I'm a 33 inside leg and 6ft 2, the bike in question i've been told is a 56, however I'm pretty sure they only make a 55 or 57. I have found a measurement chart, also attached, does anyone have any advice on exactly where the measurements are made, so I can work out which size it is? (its an 8 hour drive away, so am trying to work out before travelling)
Size Seat Tube (c-t) Top Tube Head Tube Length Seat Tube Angle
49cm 49 52 9 74
51cm 51 53.5 9 74
53cm 53 54.5 11 74
55cm 55 55.5 12.5 73.5
57cm 57 56.5 14 73
59cm 59 57.5 16 73
61cm 61 58.5 18 72.5

Hope you can help. Also just out of interested, what do you think is a resonable price for the bike, Full Dura ace Gset, Carbon eston seat post stem etc, and Bontrager 5.0 wheels? All in A1 condition?
