Merckx Mondays Jan 24, 2011


This week’s Merckx Mondays is so packed that I’m going to give you just a teaser of a recent bike that I shot, rather than the full thing. It’s Chris’ gorgeous Corsa Extra pista and this thing is too good to try to stuff into this post. But don’t fret, there’s content from all over the world below. London, Australia and Austin, Texas.

Check out this week’s Merckx Mondays below!


Yes, I’m sure you’ve seen this one by now. David Gibbons emailed me this before it spread through the internet like wild-fire. I had to do my best to not post it until today. Yes, that is Max from Tokyo Fixed Gear driving the motorcycle next to Merckx. This piece really embodies the French cartoons of the era.


Tracko spotted this one at Cork Grips as a continuation on the Molteni Volvo mention from two weeks ago.



Andy offers up two new desktop images over on Fyxomatosis. Dude, why’d you call the pink Corsa Extra a lady’s ride? I’d totally pedal that thing all over town!


Later today, I’ll give you a full look at Chris’ Eddy Merckx pista. It’s a gorgeous ride. For now, you get the backside!
