Hey, it’s been a while and when I come across something like this, I have to share it. Richard Pool designs and prints these portrait infographics of famous cyclists and the Eddy Merckx designs are so good.

See more Merckx Mondays below!

Merckx_02

Even though I have two awesome road bikes, part of me still misses riding my MX-Leader. Sure, they aren’t the lightest of bikes but they ride like none other. Even after parting with mine, I based both of my custom road bikes on its geometry. But this one’s got a history behind it. I rode this bike while I was in Australia last year and loved it. So when I saw Andy was parting with it, I got all pensive and contemplated buying it for a second.

This is one beautiful example of a non-team issue paint job on a stunning MX-Leader and FYXO is selling it now. If you ride a 58cm and have been looking for one, look no further. Check out his eBay auction here.

I came across this late Monday night last week and figured I’d just hold onto it for a week. Perhaps you remember that Merckx illustration for Rouleur Magazine #14? Well, British artist Richard Mitchelson translated his original artwork into a vinyl, 6″ figurine. You can pre-order this pocket-sized cannibal for £35.00 exclusively at Rouleur.

I can’t even begin to think where Merckx Mondays would be without the assistance from Andy White from Fyxomatosis. The man probably buys a new Merckx frame every other week and when he builds it up, it’s pristine. Dura Ace was the kit of choice back in this era. Oh and having a model in a 7 Eleven kit is a lot nicer than propping the bike up with a stick!

It’s been a busy busy day over here but I thought I’d take a break and post this great Merckx Mondays photo from Tracko.

Merckx 525

This week, I’m bringing to you one of the best Eddy Merckx books I’ve ever had my hands on. Merckx 525 is a wonderfully compiled, hardback collection showcasing the Cannibal’s 525 career victories, from his first junior championships to his retirement in 1978. There are so many photos I’ve never seen before inside its cover that I could have just scanned them in and had Merckx Mondays content for well over a year.

Gage + DeSoto have this book in stock now and are offering free shipping to US PiNP readers by using the code PINP525 at checkout. Pick one up here! I shot some more photos of Merckx 525. Check them out as well.

David Lundqvist got ahold of a beautiful Stuttgart pista frameset and built it with all Campagnolo C-Record Pista. I am drooling right now. And no, that’s not my old frame. This one’s in much better condition. It’s been a while since a Merckx Mondays, but I thought this deserved one!

There’s one more gem below.
