Just finished a titanium build of a Merlin Magia. Purchased it on the Bay. I have always wanted a Merlin since my college days working at a bike shop.

Not a weightweenie build, but more for comfort and more relaxed fit. Weight is 6925 g.

Merlin Magia Medium
Reynolds fork
Sram Force shifters, and derailleurs.
Sram Rival brakes with black prince pads.
Sram Red GXP crank 50/34 with ceramic bb.
Look Keo carbon cromo pedals
Light Bicycle 45mm U rims built on Bitex 210g/80g hubs 10 sp, Sapim Laser 20/24. Ti skewers.
Vittoria Open Corsa CX 25mm tires
Sram Red 11-26 cassette
Specialized Romin expert 155mm with Specialized Pave seatpost

Nice bikes, chazmtb!
Looks like you prefer more forward saddle position (and not exactly horizontal) but use layback seatposts.

@leugene. The specialized romin has a high back and a slight tilt down nose. I should get a zero offset post like a Thompson but I already had a specialized pave with the zerts insert around. Want comfort more than anything else on this build. Hence many spacers below the stem.

@newsboy you crazy! How many titanium frames there can be upcycled ... it'd only be better if the frames were built and ridden!

Yes that frame is produced in Russia, as of this year all Gilbertson frames are made in China. I've got mine since last Friday.
