Hi again im thinking of buying the below Mercian bike, but can anybody help me with the model/year and value of the bike, it has Shimano RX100 running gear, wobbler wheels and looks in great condition.

Any comments and ideas welcome

Thanks Neil

Looks a bit Olympic.......ish. Mercian keep a log of their frames and numbers and are usually very helpful with ID :D

Hi Neil,
this appears to be very similar to my Mercian Audax, if so the frame number is on the bottom bracket and the last two numbers indicate year of manufacture ie 12396 is frame 123 of 96. Give Mercian a call with the frame number there always happy to help. Value????? cheers Bill

Would you say £230 is a fair price for the bike?

To determine a original Mercian, should there be a 5 digit stamp on the bottom bracket the last 2 digits confirming the year, if the bike does not have any stamp should they be avoided? :?

thanks Neil
