Merckx Mondays Jan 2, 2012


This week’s Merckx Mondays content is a little on the thin side but it’s still packed with some great bikes. To go with the livery of the first one, here’s a photo of Eddy in his Faema kit.

Check out more below!


Steely Fan has had quite the number of stunning Merckx frames in his day but this Faema pista is just gorgeous. Check out more at his Flickr.


7-Elevens are so common and yet, each build is unique in its own. Check out what Box Dog Bikes recently built for a customer. Digging the Campy Record to HED Belgium wheels. Perfect! Check out more at their Flickr.

In related news, to help fund my Bishop road bike, I’ll be putting my Eddy Merckx MX-Leader frameset up on eBay next week. I’m selling the frame, fork, Dura Ace 7400 headset, Dura Ace 7402 brake calipers, Dura Ace 7402 fluted seat post, SRAM BB and pantograph stem for $650 + shipping. I’ll be posting detail photos of the frame soon but if you’re interested, these photos will show you its condition.

60cm CTC ST
58cm CTC TT

The frame has a slack seat tube angle (72°), proper Belgian style, so the top tube rides shorter than a “true” 58cm.
