Here's a quick peek at a very unusual Merlin. Back in the late 80s and early 90s the elevated chainstay craze was sweeping the nation and it seems like no brand was immune to its immense pull. Not even the king of subtlety and elegance was able to resist the trend and so the 1991 Elevator was born. Word on the street is that Merlin made a mere 150 of these frames and only offered them in 1991. They were available in small, medium and large and this one is an example of the latter. This bike hasn't seen much trail use and is in very good condition. The components are all over the place but there are a few highlights such as steel CQP cranks, Grafton brakes, beautiful albeit cut Syncros post, mint Flite Ti seat and a few other nice odds and ends.
