Davids New machine

This is the prettiest and the greatest.
I had a 753 Argos in the early 90's, it was springy and comfortable. I had a carbon fibre last year, it was rather harsh but light and quick but I fell out of love with it when I considered the dull thud of flicking it with the fingernail as opposed to the liveliness of steel. So I got measured up by Ray of Mercian and bespoke this machine. It's got better wheels than the other two which in part accounts for its lighter weight; it's light alright and as far as comfort goes, it is really smooth. You don't need carbon fibre or pneumatic forks, just 853. It is the best bike on the road. Thank you Mercian.
