Vincitore & Vincitore Special

In this age of speed of manufacture it is pleasing to find a frame with intricate lug work, cut by hand, as our Vincitore model.

The Vincitore and Vincitore Special, introduced to the Mercian range around 1965, has for many years been the model that lots of riders aspire to own when they are looking to purchase that "special" frame. If you are looking for a frame that is distinctive, beautiful, hand-built (as all our frames) by one craftsman from start to finish, which is perfectly at home on day rides or on touring holidays - this could be the frame for you.

Hours are spent cutting and filing the Vincitore lugs from plain / blanks, the result is a work-of-art, aesthetically pleasing and structurally more rigid owing to the longer lugs. A distinctive frame available only from Mercian.

As with most Mercian frames - the Vincitore model can be built to suit most disciplines - from track, audax to full-on touring.

The Vincitore standard model has the spearpoint head lugs, fork crown and hand-cut seat lug, with a hand-cut bottom bracket but without the long profiled spearpoints of the Vincitore Special (pictured).
