I don't know if an identical post already exists, if so please excuse me.
An administrator will be able to fix it

I start with my bespoke Mercet from 1994 in Columbus EL.

What's it weigh? Or do I have to wait for the book to come out?

I'm going to tell you or you're going to hav a child crisis of 5 years old as in the past...

As mounted on the last picture with the second generation of Shamal and measuring 181 cm (6 feet), knowing that I wanted a missile for both flat and slightly hilly, it weighs 9.5 kg ( 19,8416 lbs). And braizing with 30% of silver.
The one I have for the mountain with the same type of construction weighs 7.8 kg (15,4324 lbs)
I hope to have answered as well as possible, otherwise it will be necessary to wait for the book !

Yes, it's always a good idea to insult your potential customers.

That said, thank you. It's a beautiful (and light) bike.

These are nice bikes. I hope your participation in discussions here doesn't always circle back to the book you're selling.

I only said once in the forum that I was writing a book about this framer who, in view of his work, is certainly in the top 5 or 3 in the world and not only because of the quality and finish of his work, but also because of the fact that he only made 300 or so frames in his entire life.
But some people have fixed on this book project, including you, and for that I can't help it...
I don't talk about it, I only post pictures.
Am I talking about the book?
No, I only publish pictures...
I demonstrate that...
Take a look....











Did you know this manufacturer before I mentioned it in the forum?
Of course not...
And among your Peugeot, Legnano, Fuji, Zunow, De Rosa, Miyata, Bianchi, Pinarello, Specialized, Bridgestone, Cinelli, do you have anything close to this level?
Of course not...
So keep calm and enjoy...

The frames are exquisite, of course. Thank you for posting the pictures, Alexandre. Top "5 or 3 in the world?" Probably room for debate there. I've seen lugged examples that are just as nice, if not nicer. And if your ranking is not only based on the quality and finish, but instead on the number of frames someone has built in their lifetime---then there are certainly more than a few contenders for that prize. By "close to this level," not quite sure what you mean. But personally, I'd take my SC over one of these, lovely though they are.

You still have a lot to learn about the construction of a frame, and not only the differences between a handmade frame and an industrial frame...
It is impossible for an industrial brand to produce frames with this level of detail, for the simple reason of selling price....
Or you don't know the difference between an apple and a pear. It has two different shapes and two different tastes just in case...

You've become fixated on it!
You want it as a gift with a personalized dedication ?

The comparison between a handmade frame and an industrial frame (as you call it) is not an apple and a pear but more like a polished apple and a washed apple. They both taste the same however one is shiny.
