Finish it Yourself
To avoid the high shipping costs, since the Merced is a very large bicycle, we decided to send the cargo box unarmed, leaving that part of the assembly to the end user. We prepare a list of steps and videos so that when you receive your Mercy you can finish putting it together without problems.

Another important thing that you should consider is purchasing the epoxy resin locally, due to official transportation regulations, we cannot include it in the shipment as it is considered a dangerous material.
Bamboo is one of the strongest natural materials in nature.
Bamboo can withstand up to 1ton/cm2 of compression force, this is twice the tolerance of steel.Bamboo is also lighter making it ideal for bicycle construction. Other incredible quality is that it absorbs as much as x4 more vibrations than carbon fiber, making our bikes, the smoothest bicycle (ideal for long rides).Neither bamboo nor carbon fiber are subject to fatigue. Your bike can endure daily use and falls without losing its strength.It takes up to 15 years for a regular pine tree to grow, it takes bamboo as little as 3 years to reach the same level, making it a very renewable source.Naturally bamboo generates 30% more oxygen than trees, this helps break down Co2 generated by cars. It takes up to 15 years for a regular pine tree to grow, it takes bamboo as little as 3 years to reach the same level, making it a very renewable source.
50k unidirectional Carbon Fiber
+ epoxy resin, our bikes are all hand made and hand finished to perfection. This incredible material makes all the joints extremely strong yet light. Using unidirectional fibers let us design the frame’s structure, making it stronger where it needs to be.
