Mercian Velocita


Doc Sarah's Bicycle Pages - Mercian Velocita

Ordered in November 2005, and collected on 28th April 2006, this is an absolute beautry. After buying the Trek, an riding it for a while, I knew what I wanted from a bicycle and decided to take the plunge and order this as a retirement present for myself.

I have to say it is an absolute pleasure to ride - very light indeed, and beautifully equipped. The Campag Chorus groupset (with Dura-Ace chainset) is superb to use, and I have ridden almost 2000 miles on this bicycle with no problems whatsoever. It is absolutely ideal for longer day rides and audax events, and I am stunned with the quality and workmanship of this machine.

This is all the bling stuff on the bike!

  • Mercian pro lugless Reynolds 853 front triangle (semi-compact design) (basically 19 inch frame)
  • Dedacciai Black Force carbon fibre forks
  • Dedacciai carbon fibre rear triangle
  • Campagnolo Record headset and Ambrosio stem
  • Easton Ascent II wheels
  • Dura-Ace triple (52-39-30) crankset and BB
  • Ultegra triple front mechanism
  • Chorus 10 speed rear mechanism
  • Campagnolo Chorus 10 speed chain
  • Campagnolo Chorus carbon fibre Ergo-levers
  • Continental Supersonic Tyres
  • Time ATAC XS Carbon Pedals
  • Campagnolo Chorus brakes

1. Very, very bling - fantastic little bicycle!

2. Another superb view of this little rocket

3. I never thought I'd see the words Dura-Ace on any of my bicycles. A close-up of the Chorus rear mech, beautiful carbon fibre rear triangle and the Dura-Ace front. Very nice indeed. The Easton wheels are quite tasty too!
