Ive finally got round to sending you a picture of my KoM after collecting the frame from you on 1 May and building it up myself the following week. I think It looks great with Shimano XT group apart from Dura Ace bar ends (cables outed under the bar tape which shift really well), Velo Orange Grand Cru long reach brakes which keep the retro silver vibe along with Ritchey seat post and cockpit and the Royce hubs. I've taken off front and rear racks for light day riding, with the Carradice small zip saddlebag being more than adequate for this purpose and looking the part with the Brooks saddle. I'm really pleased with the bike, it is very comfortable and I'm looking forward to some longer tours before long and hopefully an End to End next year.
Until further notice we are not taking in frame major repairs of any sort to other than Mercian.
We are still doing the smaller jobs such as brazing on and removing parts to frames but not new tubes , frame lugs and bottom brackets etc . This is due to the work load we have on at the moment. We are sorry but we need to get these Mercian frames built and repaired.
Spraying of any make or model is not a problem. So please bring them in for that re-spray.
Its been a while i know but over the past few months we have been so busy. I hopefully now have a little more time to get the blog on track again. I will see if we can jazz this blog up a bit its a little dull and needs a change. Hopefully i will be keeping you up to speed on whats happening in the world of Mercin on a regular basis. . Over the past couple of months or so we have made it to a couple of events The Eroica for one and the Revolution meeting at the Derby velodrome.
