My Mercian has finaly arrived. Woot. I'll take it into the good LBS tomorrow and get them to tighten up the headset so I can ride it.
I was wondering what model Merician it is and if anyone can help me identify it.
It has the following number on the bottom bracket: 65879
Specs as follows:
Cinelli stem and Cinelli mon Campione del Monde handlebars.
Universal CX brakes and levers
Campagnolo down tube shifters
Campagnolo front derailleur
NR rear derailleur (dated 79)
Record hubs laced to alloy rims that have a sticker saying Super Champion Competition made in France.
Brooks Professional saddle. It needs some proofhide and there is a small tear at the front rivets.
Michelin Elan 27 x 1 tyres.
Would the tyres be clincher or tubulars?
Here are some photos. The smaller ones are from the auction and the others are from my cruddy digital. I will try and take some better photos tomorrow when it gets light if anyone wants them.
