Hi CR folks,

I recently received a new randoneuring/light touring frame from Mercian, and I put pictures up on my personal webpage -- some of you might have an interest in this KOF builder, so here's a link:

I took some pictures of the frame, the complete bike, and some shots during the assembly process.

The frame was made to mark Mercian's 60th anniversary, and was part of a 60 frame limited edition run made with a unique lug pattern and a sterling silver headbadge. I built it with modern (off-topic) Campy parts -- Centaur and Chorus, with a couple notable exceptions. My intent was to have sort of a modern update on a classic themed bike. I'm waiting for Honjo aluminum fenders to get back in stock at VeloOrange so I can complete it.

take a look if you're so inclined!
