Paul Smith creates ‘personalised’ bicycles

Fashion designer and cycling fan Sir Paul Smith has teamed up with Derby bicycle maker Mercian to create a ‘personalised’ range of cycles based on the company’s Mercian Track and Tour cycles.

Smith has designed nine custom builds, which include bespoke bar tape produced by leather cycle gear manufacturer Brooks. The cycles will be available from Paul Smith shops from November.
