Hi all,

Not an expert so feel free to correct me on any info that might be wrong.

Good working condition considering, 531C, look at pictures and judge for yourself. One small ding on top tube, see picture. Scuffs and marks here and there. Serial number 8289.

According to the serial number it's made in 89. Shimano 105 gears and breaks, work well. Almost new mudguards and tyres. Campagnolo hubs. Recently had a full service. Mavic rims. Frame is straight. Saddle is really worn. I was thinking £370? But now I'm also thinking I would sell it for £340! When thinking more I could go £320 if it was to find a good owner.

Measured it and I get the seat tube to 57.5cm and the top tube to 57.5. Would be 22.5" on both I think.


Located in London, would prefer collection but would consider courier at buyers own risk and cost.

Thanks for looking!

I am almost sure it is 56 but could be 55. Will check tonight.

Nice Mercian, and Filip has been very dependable in dealings I've had with him over a couple of parts - good guy!
(I'd be tempted myself if I didn't already have too many bikes, including two Mercians!)

Lovely Mercian and a very good price.
Like the above, if I didn't already have two Mercians I would be well tempted.
