Hi Mercian team,
I thought I'd send along a few pictures of my mountain/touring 2006 Mercian Vincitore Special now featuring the new extra wide and extra beefy fork that you made at the end of last year with the crown and 1" tandem fork blades that I sent you. Presumably the widest fork (and certainly not the lightest!) you've made for a Vincitore recently, but as you can see, my favorite tire size justifies it....
The refitted bike is a wonderful ride, in fact so much so that it's become my daily commuter in addition to being a weekend road and trail machine. The pictures were taken on a late winter ride up Mt. Diablo, one of the Bay Areas nicest climbs, where you get rewarded with fantastic views from the 3800 ft. summit, followed by a thrilling descent (lots of great dirt trails as well).
Thanks, and best wishes,
