I may have access to a 1984 Mercian frame that was bought new and never built up. I don't know the model but it was supposed to be their version of a road bike (not competition).
Is it better to build a bike using a 1984 Mercian frame or would it be better to buy a new bike with? That is, has bike technology made the Mercian of the 1980 obsolete?
BTW, I am riding a 1980's Novara 8-)
