Looking around for a sub £500 bike and came across this is Merlin Sale section,

Merlin Malt 1 7005 Aluminium frame
08 Rock shox Dart 2 forks with lockout
08 LX V-Brakes
08 Full LX Groupset
08 Deore chainset and bottom bracket
Deore hubs with Mavic 117 rims
FSA bars, stem and seatpost

All of the above for just £375! YES £375!! I am not too worried about Disc brakes as i would prefer the LX V's with koolstops to save a bit of weight.

Other than that looks like a superb bargain to get me back into FUN/ SPORT XC Races and Trail centre riding!!

Anyone disagree ?
