We've just uploaded another gallery of pics from last weekends Handmade bike exhibition in Germany this time featuring the Merlin's and Litespeeds on show.
Amongst the bikes the two brands had on display were two Litespeed Archon's one a standard road model with some very far from standard paint job hand-done by German paint specialists Fromental; the other a custom frame fixed version with track end dropouts and some lush Paul Components, er components and an extended titanium seatpost.
Also on display was a very classic looking Cyrene and a Merlin Cielo. For fans of the off-road side of things there was also tricked out version of the Litespeed Sewanee and Unicoi.
We'll be posting a load more pics over the weekend with some in-depth captions too.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
