Matthew Magnificent Mercian

Posted on

20 year old Mercian 'classic' rebuild.
Original frame and paint job, mudguards and rims. Rebuilt with
contemporary components for touring.

Equipped with a Stronglight triple, Marchisio sprocket Cassette, Mavic
MA50 CRD rims, Schmidt Son 28 dyno hub, Schmidt Edelux front light with
internal wiring running to a Bush and Muller rear light. (I was really
pleased to be able to use the original wiring to thread the Schmidt
wire through the frame.) Recently mounted a Tout terrain USB charger on
the handlebars.

Toured through Europe this summer and always take it on CTC and Audax
rides as it's fantastically comfortable. It's a real pleasure to own
and a joy to ride.
