Merlin Mountain Frame

The Mountain frame, made Titanium tubing has a geometry that has taken inot account the use of a suspension fork. The top tube slopes slightly improving standover clearance.

The Mountain frame uses the S-bend stays which permit wider tire clearance so a 2.5" wide tire can used on it. The chainstays are 7/8" in diameter and the seat stays are 3/4" in diameter.

The vertical rear drop outs are machined from Ti 6Al 4V plate.

The Mountain uses a 27.2 seatpost.
