  • Description:
    In 1980 Raymond Creuset quit his work at the famous bicycle manufacturer Mercier. But it was just to buy the rather unsuccessful company Mécacycle which had its facilities right down the road not far from the Mercier factory in St. Etienne, France.
    Soon he attracted the attention of the cycling world with some pretty innovative designs. And the Mécacycle Turbo was one of them.
    A bike designed for professional cyclists with a split seat tube to make the frame stiffer and create a short wheelbase to make the handling extremely easy.
    Though the idea was not exactly new, the frames were made to a very high quality standard and remained successful for many years. For the tubing mostly Super Vitus was used which was somewhat similar to Columbus SL or Reynolds 531. Those tubes were fillet brazed or lugged where it seemed necessary
    This frame from the year 1985 is an elaborated pursuit model which was famous for its perfectly balanced riding characteristics. It would be an excellent choice for a collection or a mid 1980s project!
