Mercier still exist!!............At least the name does!!............On my way home from Belgium this last week and as usually I take a detour here and there to check out the area a little........Ran across a dicount outlet for low quality stuff and in the corner was 3 Merciers, all of course were ''BUD BIKEs''!!

Did I find anything on this road trip,.............Sure did,..........A bakers dozen worth of old NR and SR equipped bikes, nothing to rave about on the frames themselves!.........Just a god score for the components............Also a few boxes in tow.

Best regards,
