Acquisition of Mercian Cycles

Posted on

We are excited to announce the acquisition of Mercian Cycles, a beloved icon in the cycling community known for nearly 80 years of unparalleled craftsmanship and innovation in bicycle frame design. We have inherited an indelible legacy from all of the previous owners which we deeply respect and intend to honor as we move forward.

We are a team of four passionate cyclists from Derby, dedicated to securing the future of Mercian Cycles in Derby. We will continue to hand-build our frames in the heart of England, maintaining the heritage and spirit of Mercian Cycles while fostering innovation and growth. We recognise the challenges faced by the previous owners and understand the deep connections many have with the Mercian brand. Our goal is to ensure a seamless transition, honoring the past while embracing the future.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Grant and Jane Mosley, who took over from Bill Betton in 2002. Grant, a long-time Mercian employee who started at a junior level, together with Jane, continued this legacy with great passion and commitment, maintaining the high standards and dedication to excellence that have always defined Mercian Cycles.  It’s a testament to their passion for Mercian that they have continued to help us steer a course in to this next era.

We are pleased to announce that we have retained our talented craftsmen, whose expertise is the heart and soul of Mercian, and what makes each bicycle unique.

To our cherished Mercian community, we are here to support and grow the brand you love. We value your thoughts, memories, and pictures, and we encourage you to share them with us. We are proud to have saved Mercian Cycles, but we need you to keep it alive. Your continued support and involvement are crucial as we embark on this new chapter.

Thank you for your continued trust as we look forward to building on Mercian’s proud legacy, creating exceptional bicycles that honor the past, celebrate the present, and look toward the future.
