Beautiful, Bespoke Bicycles

The majority of Mercian frames are bespoke... They are all beautiful!

You can choose a Mercian frame or complete bicycle in one of four ways:

  • Special Order of non standard paintwork and accessories to your exacting requirements.
  • Bespoke from our standard range of model options and finishes.
  • Recommended specification in conjunction with your chosen colour scheme.
  • From our “off the peg” stock

Across the Mercian frame range we have recommended specifications, however with a bespoke bicycle, you can choose precisely how you want to specify your frame and accessorise your bicycle.

  • Frame Style and size
  • Tubing
  • Braze-ons for Bottles, Pump and Mudguards
  • Paint colour and finish
  • Transfers, Crests and Head Crest
  • Barbers Pole design
  • Groupset – Crank & Chain, Derailleur Gears, Brake Calipers and Dual Control Levers.
  • Wheels, Hubs, Gear Cassette and Tyres
  • Saddle and Saddle Stem
  • Handlebars, Bar Tape and Bar Stem

One frame-builder builds each frame from beginning to end

Each frame has his own identification number, which you will find on the bottom bracket shell near to the unique frame number.   You wont find production lines at Mercian!   There aren’t many products on the market today that are still built by one craftsman; they take care with each stage of construction, it’s one of their frames, which they put their own stamp on, meaning it’s a frame that you too can be proud of.

For further information about how we build our frames, please visit the Craftsmanship section

The majority of Mercian’s are custom built to order, however, we do have a limited stock of ready built frames and bikes to call upon if you need your Mercian immediately

Just as you may prefer a tailor-made suit to an off-the-peg garment, you can have your frame and cycle custom built for you.

At Mercian Cycles we aim to maintain and improve on the best practices of traditional hand-crafted methods of building bicycle frames. We adapt and update the frame models with the newest and best materials available, thus giving you a practical, comfortable, durable and enjoyable bike to ride for many years.

In order to process your order we ask for a £500 deposit for a Frame only order or £1000 deposit for a Complete Bike order. We endeavour to put significant care and time into each frame and bike order to make sure the order is right for you. We order the parts as soon as your order is confirmed with a deposit, for this reason deposits are non-refundable.
