Vincent's Audax

"I took my new Mercian Audax out for it's maiden voyage today and it was a pure joy to ride I'm now looking forward to another 30 years of pleasure on the roads with my steel horse. 

For those who are interested I chose and acquired all of the parts myself over 12 months after researching; gearing, mechs, handlebar types etc...The parts of interest are listed below for anyone thinking of building a Mercian Audax up.
