Just picked up a nice old Mercier with 531 tubes. Before I head over to Sheldon's site, anyone have links or information about Mercier generally and the specs for the older bikes? Wondering what weird Frenchisms I'm going to have to deal with when working on it. Thanks much.

Other than mostly french threading, it shouldn't be too bad..

More than likely, the BB, stem, pedal/crank, and headset/fork are all French threaded....

The newer the bike, this less likely that all of the above is true...French manufacturers seemed to phase out French threading piece by piece..
