"This is a shot of my Vincitore Ruby Flamboyant & Carry Freedom trailer, hiding from the rain in a bus shelter near Bristol. The bike is Campagnolo Mirage equipped, Mavic MA3 rims and Vittoria tyres, Brooks Team Pro saddle and Campagnolo Pro-fit pedals.
The frame is 20 years old, and is as good as new (except for the inevitable scratches and chips) and is always the subject of conversation and admiration.
I was on my way to completing a Double End to End last month - 1789 miles in 3 weeks, raising £2500 for the Alzheimer's Society. The bike performed faultlessly. The frame is wonderful! Thank you, Mercian!" - Mick Fairhurst, Cornwall.
