New Mercury has arrived
« on: October 20, 2017, 04:49:39 PM »
Amazing service as always and the bike arrived on Wednesday.
This is a photo from our ride today on a twenty mile round trip (including a coffee stop!) to Wetherby in the claggy weather.
Lovely ride on the tubeless tyres.

Fantastic, thanks for sharing the pics. Interesting comment about your tubeless tyres, it would be good to try them at some point.

Blue is such a lovely colour for a bike.
Tubeless tyres, will be interested to hear how they perform in the long term.  May be a bit of competition for the  Marathon Plus heavyweights.

Hi Guys and thanks for comments.

Size is 610L. I'm 6' 2"

Tubeless is an interesting experiment.
Comfort definitely good. Speed no slower because of the tyres (legs different discussion!). Longevity we shall see.

Anto the idea of the Rohloff is that I don't need to clean it too often! In this weather I would need to clean after every ride and that ain't going to happen!!

That's encouraging, I'm the same height with the same size on order, it looks nicely proportioned with isn't always the case in frames our size.

Great bike ... sooooo tempted by a Mercury after many years of a Raven Tour. I'll keep the Raven Tour of course!
