A custom bicycle from MERCER is designed for one person – you. Explore the collection of previous custom bicycles from the MERCER workshop.
Also available is The Hungry Monkey – a semi-production Mountain Bike from MERCER. Made by hand, one at a time in the MERCER workshop in Cape Town, it is available in three sizes – M, L and XL. The Hungry Monkey is a relatively lightweight but long travel 650B trail bike based around a 140 – 160mm travel fork. It is fillet brazed from mostly Columbus Nivachrome tubing and uses sliding dropouts.
“I have had a love affair with bicycles since I was five. I love the inherent beauty in the simple design of the bicycle and I admire the workmanship and artistry that goes into the handmade bicycle. It has always been a dream of mine to design and manufacture custom bicycles and parts. Here at MercerBikes I can finally realise this dream”. – David Mercer
