Nick,

I looked at your pics and the Meral is an absolutely beautiful bike and I'd certainly take it over a gold-plated Colnago popemobile. Your emails to the CR list that challenge the status quo are desperately needed, so keep up the good work.

Anyway, I have a Meral racer which can be every bit as spiv but a darn sight beter built than any outrageously priced wall hanger, and I'll back that up with photos right here http://vieuxvelos.canalblog.com/ Your life will never be the same again.
