    Check out my Mercian Professional I have just put up for sale. Too many bikes and not enough time to ride them all

    A classic 1986 Mercian Professional Reynolds 531 double butted frame. Check out the beautiful spear point bottom bracket and lug work.

    The seat tube is 60cm 23.5” from centre to top and the top tube is 58cm 22.5” from centre to centre. The rear end has been respaced to 130mm by the frame builder Kevin Winter.

    It comes with a Shimano Ultregra 9 speed groupset and Rolf hubs with deep red rims, Cinelli bars and stem and Campagnolo headset.

    The saddle and pedals are not included but I’ll chuck in an old Brooks B17 if required.

    £425 and can be collected from Bow or I can meet central.

    Hi I’ve got a 1961 Mercian track frame 57.5cm. Which belonged to Billy Holmes, former Olympic cyclist who competed in the 1956 and 1960 Olympics. Google him.

    It has been repainted and I bought it off one of his friends.

    If you’re interested let me and I’ll put more pictures and details

    Riding home on Friday evening at 17:40 on the CS2 Mile End Road heading east, passed Mile End Tube and the police the other side waiting for cyclists to jump the next red light the pedestrian crossing lights near Cobarn Road were green so I kept going when a silver Ford Focus on Mile End Road decided to turn left into Cobarn Road just as I was approaching didn’t look or see me. I braked to avoid him and in doing so skidded on my left hand side. Ended up with a cut elbow and a dislocated shoulder.
    I would like to thank the 2 guys who stopped in their car for me, a fellow cyclist and a lady from the local pub. And the staff at the Royal London who treated me.
    I have been back and there is a CCTV about 2 meters away number 100. I have reported it to the Police rang from outside the Police station as it closed told I would receive a reference number by text and email which I haven’t received. So I have reported online but haven’t heard anything. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can find out the drivers details.
