- Any thoughts on Merlin's Malt 4?
I've had my malt 4 since 2004. It's a great frame for building a nice bike around, not too heavy, and has coped well as my only bike (until just recently) for Lake District riding. All in all very pleased with the build Merlin did for me, and have upgraded things over the years. Will be keeping it, probably as a racier lighter weight spec, now I have my full bounce Chumba.Posted 8 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
A friend of mine has one, it's a couple of years old I think so this might have been improved but the paint is absolutely ****-poor, it looks like it's been sandblasted though it doesn't get a huge amount of use. Not particularily good tyre clearance, I guess it's an XC frame but he had one of my 2.35s in it when he borrowed a wheel and it rubbed…
Still, it's a nice frame. I wouldn't spend £400 on it though.Posted 8 years ago
