Here are a couple shots from the first ride on my new King of Mercia, feel free to put them up on the blog if you want.
First impressions are that it is a wonderful ride and was worth the wait! I bought it through West End Bikes in Houston Texas and Piam there built it up for me with mostly Campagnolo Centaur parts, a Brooks Swift saddle, and Open Pro rims on White Industries hubs. The electric blue and cream paint scheme is eye catching, the ride is comfortable and cornering feels very precise. I'm looking forward to many years and many many thousands of miles on it!
