Merckx Mondays Nov 21, 2011


Today doesn’t feel like a Monday. Usually on Mondays, I don’t get the chance to ride because I’m so busy but today I was out on the bike for a few hours. When my drive-side BB cup came loose, I found myself doing some emergency work with my bike flipped upside down on the side of the road. After I got the cups somewhat tight (damn Italian threaded shells!), I admired the MXL / MAX bb lug. It’s massive. No wonder Merckx loved MX-L so much.

Thanks to Jordan from Velo Champ for sharing this photo. See more photos at Eroica Cicli and more Merckx Mondays below!


Hey gimme that! Thanks to Jim from Portland for sending this in!


Ty from the Footdown shared these shirts from Urban Cyclery. Is it bad that I abhor Metallica? I don’t think even a Molteni flip would get me wearing anything that resembles them…

While I duck and hide for the inevitable backlash from that, enjoy your Monday afternoon!
