Not sure if I breaking rules doing this but;
Mini Velo Mercier Nano
I met the guy on a Baltimore Bike Party and it is nice.
Those handles...must have!!! Where did you purchase your drops or is it the taping...love....
Had the electric kit on for awhile now. Is it safe to say that I own the fastest Mercier Nano on the planet? It does 35mph for about 30 miles.
Yeah, claiming Fastest is fair, I'd say!
So what's the deal with the gearing setup? Looks like a 5spd with stock derailleur; how does it all work?
Also, did you up-spoke the front reason to deal with stresses of sustained speeds or something?
and I can report that the brakes are adequate for the speeds I'm attaining although I wouldn't mind a disc on the front. The handling is also fine, not twitchy at all, very stable.
I had the brakes fully clamped down but they'd apparently faded pretty badly so weren't stopping me as much as they were slowing me down. Luckily for us both, she heard me yelling at her as she started her blind U-turn, and stuck to the far right of the road as I rolled past her. They slowed me down enough that a crash wouldn't have been catastrophic, but it would've been some sort of unpleasant.
Anyway...be careful with the stock brakeset if you're in a situation where they'll be prone to fade. Whether or not you've got a sweet electric assist rig or not...
Can anyone help me out with the stock handlebars' width? I want to switch quill stems and I'm not sure what diameter the clamp needs to be. Can't find the specs online.
so you got a precise time for the flying mile(running start) over flat ground ?Quote:
It does 35mph for about 30 miles.
electric regular style Motorbike record on Bonneville salt flats is about 200 MPH..
I think I saw a streamlined number , a pencil shaped thing went, faster than that
Drag racer, 6.94 sec 201mph ..standing start, 1/4 mile https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqlyG-HIB5k
Does anyone know or tried putting 451 rims and using short reach brakes on the Nano? Would there be enough clearance? Thanks.
i was curious about the 451 fitment as well. while searching, i saw this - clearly a completely different mercier "nano" with a much longer wheelbase. can anyone here explain this?
this is the very short wheelbase version that everyone seems to be buying:
I tried it with the 451 rear wheel off my Swift shod with a 1-1/8" Primo Comet. The tire hit the Nano's rear brake bridge. I didn't bother checking the front.
Too bad, as I'd heard that the first version of the Nano either came in 451 or could fit them.
Edit: Smallwheeler, the top picture you just posted was one of the first lot. I remember now they came with the bullhorn handlebars and cross levers. That was a nice setup.
I thought the 451 version was called a Windsor Shetland, I believe they only sold a few as a test run. Somebody on the forum has one I forget who though.
"pre-production models" which is a completely different bike:
and then there is the windsor, which looks to be what became the nano.
