Vintage 20″ Merlin Titanium Mountain Bike, 26″ Wheels, XTR,Cook,King,Phil,Magura



This auction is for a complete vintage Merlin titanium mountain bike with 26″ wheels. The frame measures 20″ from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the top tube, and 23 1/2″ from the center of the head tube to the center of the seat tube. It weighs only 24 lbs 11oz!

The parts list is s blast from the past:

Answer Alumilite bars

Chris King 1″ headset

Syncros stem

Ritchey (?) steel fork

Shimano XTR seatpost

Brooks B17 saddle

XT 7 speed thumb shifters

XTR front and rear derailleurs

Magura Raceline hydraulic rim brakes

Cook Brothers triple cranks

WTB Grease Guard bottom bracket

Shimano XT pedals

Phil Wood alloy thread on hubs

And some WTB tires.

The bike rides well, shifts through all gears, wheels are true, bearings smooth. The rear brake must be bled front brake super strong. All of the bike shows quite a lot of wear with some rust on the non titanium bits, the fork in particular.

I gave it a light cleaning and will let the future owner ride it or restore it as they see fit. A friend is the original owner and asked me to help him sell off one of the vital bikes that don’t seem to be being used.

I am including shipping in the price of the bike. I will be able to ship through bike flights which is regularly fed ex ground. If you need to pay extra for a different shipping arrangement please let me know.

Please see photos, what you see is what you get. When you have any questions please ask BEFORE bidding. Thanks!
