  • Description:
    At Mercian, they are committed to hand building beautiful bespoke bicycles, after all they have been doing precisely that since 1946.
    Following the second World War Messers Crowther & Barker founded Mercian and selected the City of Derby in the heart of England to hand build bespoke bicycles.
    The name Mercian originates from the English Kingdom of Mercia, which existed until the 10th Century, covering the region now known as The Midlands.
    Hand built in Derby, Mercian cycles have been exported all over the world, hencethe traditional head crest of our bike states “Mercian Cycles, the world over”.
    Mercian still builds lightweight steel frames and bicycles by hand, using traditional frame building methods, with one craftsman building each frame from start to finish. Just like they did with our Mercian Vincitore Special Ranonneur

    The Vincitore and Vincitore Special, introduced to the Mercian range around 1965, has for many years been the model that lots of riders aspire to own when they are looking to purchase that “special” frame. If you are looking for a frame that is distinctive, beautiful, which is perfectly at home on day rides or on touring holidays – this could be the frame for you.
    Hours and hours are spent cutting and filing the intricate Vincitore lugs from plain/blanks, the result is a work-of-art, aesthetically pleasing and structurally more rigid owing to the longer lugs. Then these lugs were soldered to Reynolds tubes. A frame available only from Mercian.

    Our Vincitore has been built as a thoroughbred touring bike, thus top class touring components were necessary to complete it. The Campagnolo Icarus groupset which found its way onto the frame is perfectly fit for this job.
    To give the Vincitore Special even more capability, we equipped it with a set of light aluminium mudguards and a Nitto rear rack. Thoroughly checked, this Mercian Randonneur is now ready to see many thousand miles under your pedal strokes.

    Elegant and unmistakably British with a twist of fine Italian components. What's not to love about this bike? »See Details
