Hi, I'm 6 ft, in your opinion would this bike suit me? If so and you have any photos I'd be thankful if you could send me some. Thanks!

See page 29 of the Touring Bike Bible http://www.sjscycles.com/thornpdf/thorn_mega_brochure.pdf. I think your would need a 55cm or 58cm frame.

Is this still available please - If it is could it be converted to a derailleur gear system or Rohloff? Could you send some pics?

I am 5'7 with an inside leg of 31 - sounds like it would be good fit. Where is collection from please.
thanks

The Mercury is made specifically for Rohloff hub gears and doesn't have a derailleur hanger.
