Quick story about the bike. I bought the frame in 2000, build the bike on it and rode till 2007, then i had a 4 year break from cycling. After that I bought new frame and transplanted all parts to it, Merida went into the dark corner of my parents basement. Over the years I stored lots of used parts in the same corner. After my father passed away I found myself spending lots of time back in my home. I didn't want to take my bicycles with me every time, so after a trip to the basement I've managed to bolt this together.
