I hae done close to 65k on it now, this includes riding up and down most of the Colorado mountain passes. I also have a Mercian Roadpath also a fine machine. Hi John – thanks for writing. Nice bikes. A great read. Very reassuring to know there’s still so much passion for beautiful bicycles. I have just picked up a Mercian King of Mercia. Hopefully just my first and I love it. I was wondering what are the handlebars on your classic and your Vincitore?

Mercian employs three frame builders and there are probably very few work-spaces in the country that have changed so little since , since.

Westfield Columbia G Frame Numbers. Thread starter Mercian; Start date Dec 2,
Probably one sold through an agent to order as it has vertical dropouts only seen on one other frame built for Wilson. Not much doubt about the builder and with some provenance. The bonus was a chat to a guy with three others which I have to write up. If you are interested you can contact him by dropping the website a message and I will give you contact details. Here are some photos to tempt your interest. January Thanks to those who have helped with advice and information and to owners who cherish their Major Nichols machines and take the trouble to contact us.
Some dates for the diary. If you are looking for something more challenging you could try the classic friendly Ride Lichfield sportive on 23rd June same day as Walsall Roads year anniversary ride. Just places but free or for a donation. Details and booking can be found here. I have finally got round to thinking again about this website and the need to keep it active. The years worries have begun to recede a little and God willing will be diminishing further next spring.

Westfield Frame Numbers 1933 – 1945
Hi – I made the trip to Derby last week for a bike fit at Mercian Cycles – it’s my 50th birthday next year which is when the bike will be ready and will also be 10 years since I got rid of my last car and all the associated expenses so I’ve decided to treat myself. After discussing tubing material and my requirements with Grant, I ended up choosing Reynold Pro Team, which Grant thought would work well in that configuration for my size I’m 5’8″, 74Kg and requirements even over steel!
I did consider as an alternative a King of Mercian, but with “road” geometry, but the Strada seems to be more what I’m after. The other option would be internal routing, but that would cost quite a bit more and I didn’t really like the idea. I still have time to change my mind, though, if this seems like a bad idea! Anyway, he looked at the old drawings I had from my Hewitt Cheviot bike fit to get a general ball-park for my sizing though obviously the geometry is different for a touring bike , then told me to pop on their fitting jig.
a bit later than frame date but it makes it a very usable bike. Frame is currently at Mercian Cycles in Derby for full restoration. Two sets wheels.

The builder of this Mercian frame chose to use brass, at least for the bottom bracket shell. After taking measurements and determining the rear.

I am restoring a Freddie Grubb Serial Number Bought it as a wreck at an Household Auction. I had one in the ‘s and always regretted selling it. Really only the frame is salvageable as everything has badly corroded or is worn out. As a result I have decided to rebuild it with all Campagnolo parts circa ‘s, a bit later than frame date but it makes it a very usable bike.
Frame is currently at Mercian Cycles in Derby for full restoration. Hard to get good 27″ rims!! I attach a few photos and will post later when I have frame back for rebuild.
