Merckx Mondays Oct 5, 2009

This week’s Merckx Mondays comes from the Swiss website, Speedbicycles. If you haven’t been to their site before, do check it out. It’s a virtual museum loaded with gorgeous rides.

It was too easy to pick the top Merckx from their stable, a 1992 Motorola cycling team pro bike, ridden by Andy Hampsten in the 1992 Tour de France Alpe d’Huez course.

Details below:
