Just one photo

This is our early ’70s Mercier 300 fixed gear conversion. With all the fat excised and a lightweight modern wheelset fitted, it weighs in on the bathroom scale at 18.5 lbs, which makes it the lightest bike we own. Not bad for an old steel frame (albeit Reynolds 531) pushing 50.


Fenders (mudguards) will be going on soon, however, which is almost a shame given how lean and mean it is as it currently sits.
