Steve has joined the team

We have recently announced the appointment of a new senior member to the Mercian Team. Please see below the press release which has been sent far and wide to inform everyone of this recent change.
Steve is currently on a 3 day, 150 mile, charity bike ride on his Mercian Professional from Southampton to West Bromwich.
About his charity ride - Steve said "The cause is for the 100% benefit of the Albion Foundation, which gets disabled people into sport.
If you saw these disabled people making the best of their circumstances with grit, determination and a sunny disposition, you would see why I'm involved in this.
Any help will be much appreciated by myself and more importantly the guys and girls"

Andrew, Mercian , Dubai

It’s taken me nearly a year to take this photo, mainly because I enjoy riding my new bike so much that I don’t ever feel like stopping to take a picture.  But you’ve done such a wonderful job I thought it deserved a photo.  So here’s my custom build Mercian during this morning’s coffee break in the Dubai desert on the Al Qudra Cycling Course.

Thanks again for the outstanding bike, it’s a dream ride, and, as they might say on Little Britain, “I’m the only Mercian in the village!”

Early training


Just thought I’d drop you a line and send a picture to let you know I’m still loving my new King of Mercian bike from 2013. I’ve ridden over 3000 miles, mostly commuting and winter training and love the feel of the bike. So much that I couldn’t stand riding my old aluminium frame any more and sold it on eBay. So now I have just the two bikes - a carbon fibre bike for racing and summers, and the Mercian for all other times. Plus it doubles as a baby-chariot too (see photo!). Maybe when the carbon fibre bike inevitably wears out in a few years I’ll buy another Mercian for racing and go all-steel… 

Hope you are all well and hope to see you again in the future

Best regards

Mark

Postage of frames to us for work

We have been asked a few times how to get the frame to us. The links below is a service which we find to be very handy indeed. Just follow the easy to follow instructions and hay presto we get your frame. Please remember when sending the frame to put something between the dropouts to support the frame in transit and tape your frame instructions to the frame NOT the box.

So here is a link to the renovation sheet which needs to be placed with the frame
