A few weeks back, I received this email out of the blue. Having sold all of my Eddy Merckx bikes, it made me a little sad. I wish I could keep every bike that I’ve owned but it’s not financially possible for me. Knowing that this frame went to a good home, I’m left with all the rides I did on it and the photos I took. Both of which are good enough for me. Putting in miles on an Eddy Merckx influenced how I wanted my Bishop to ride. I admire the Belgian geometry and even the chevrons and colors of the Eddy Merckx frames.
This bike and my Eddy Merckx pista in a lot of ways, made this blog into what it is today. They’re icons…
Check out more below.
It ain’t no Merckx but it has chevrons!
Speaking of icons, Tracko snapped a photo on Instagram, just in time for some priase to Jah Monday.
This sparked another memory of one of my favorite Merckx Mondays, “who has the hour record bike?” – I still need to go back and re-link all the photos to that one.
