Feeler - 61 Merlin Extralight - Pre ABC

I am putting this out for a feeler. It is on my mind to put my 61 cm Merlin Extralight up for sale along with a King headset and Reynolds Ouzo Pro Fork. I am not sure of exactly how much to ask or even how to price this combo. The fork is pristine, the frame has one small pox mark that is right by the water bottle cage in the seat tube, not seen with cages. Of course TI and the king headset are long life equipment. I had the bike painted for a change of pace. It is a charcoal gray paint with a blue pearl. To be honest it is "OK" in my opinion. Of course being TI this is easily undone.

I recently saw a Seven Axiom f/f go for almost $1100 on ebay that was the same vintage. What is a fair price for both seller and buyer for this? Anyone interested. If you would like more pics shoot me you email and i will send them along. I cant seem to get my pic small enough to attach this thread.

Seat tube - 61 cm c-to-c
Top Tube - 58.5 c-to-c

I have decided to sell. If anyone is interested i will start the asking price at $900/Offer. I will send pictures upon request via email.

Hi,

Could you complete the measurements, please? Angles, HT length, & BB drop?
Is the steerer 1" or 1.125" and how long is it?

Thanks
Tim

it is a 1" steerer with @ 29 cm of steerer tube. Full carbon it has plenty to cut.

Head Tude - 18
HTA - 74.0
STA - 72.5
Chainstay 41.6
BB Drop - 6.7

Hope this helps... you can find the complete geometry online and to my knowledge it is the same. If anyone knows otherwise please let me know.

Thank you

Too small for me, unfortunately. Good luck with the sale, these are nice frames.

I recently sold my pre ABC 57 cm Merlin Extralight for 1200 complete with 9sp campy record alloy, all but wheels. I sold it locally for cash, and I think I could have gotten more if I had tried. This was what I had paid for it.

These are awesome bikes, with stupid low resale. I just never rode it.

It was me that got the Axiom you speak of, an '03. Finally got the atrocious paint removed and am building it up. What a BEAUTY! I feel like I made a good score. I'd say your Merlin is worth about $900 max, maybe a little more. Jeff N.
