Merckx Mondays

Let me first say that I have no idea where I found this image but I can’t let Merckx Mondays just fizzle out. Tracko‘s actually doing a pretty great job with it and once Andy gets his act together and starts posting again, I’m sure the three of us will be able to nail down Merckx content. For now, I just wanted to share this incredible Campagnolo ad…

As you can imagine, it’s tough to find somewhat original Merckx Mondays content. Not saying this is by no means original, but these excerpts from a photo album haven’t been posted all over the internet… yet.

Roleur posted an extract from L’Album d’Eddy (issue 8) on their blog and I highly suggest you check it out.

It’s Not Monday: Cycling Inquisition Visits Eddy Merckx

Klaus from Cycling Inquisition supplied a few photos for a Merckx Mondays from his trip to the Eddy Merckx factory a while back. Well, his full story is now live on his site and it’s filled with great photos and a perfect early afternoon read. Check it out at Cycling Inquisition.

… and yes, this is 24 hours too late for a Merckx Mondays but I had to post it!

Happy Merckx Mondays! This Recent Roll post is brought to you by David Flores and Division 1, a new shop on the east side of Austin, Texas. The guys at D1 flew Mr. Flores out to paint this massive Eddy Merckx mural on the eastern façade of their new building. It’s impressive!

Tools of the trade:
Mamiya 7ii / 80mm
Fuji Pro400H

Photo by Michael Williams

I receive what I would consider “gems” in the form of emails from time to time. This one in particular came from Michael in Sacramento. A lifelong Merckx fan, Michael actually got to visit the factory back in 1985, where, as he described, he was too much in awe to focus. Literally.

Amazing… Hopefully, there will be more on the site from Michael in the future. Even if I have to travel to Sacramento to document it myself.

Well, my Memorial Day has wound down and as I get back to the swing of the work week, I thought I’d kick it off with a nice Merckx Mondays from Fyxomatosis. Well, technically, this one’s from Patebury, an Aussie leather shop. Rather than track down another NOS Sella Italia RS saddle for an Eddy Merckx Professional that Andy’s building, he contacted Patebury to see how close they could come to making one… it looks damn nice!

See more photos at FYXO.

I’ve seen a lot of Merckx photos, but this one is still one of my favorites. The photographer (whoever they are) really captured that Merckx moment. Happy Monday.

I have no idea who the photographer is, if you do, please share.

Mr. Fyxomatosis and his #MolteniBaby jerseys sold extremely well. You can’t get any more “Merckx” than Molteni orange and I found this photo quite appropriate for Merckx Mondays.

I wonder if Eddy knew what he’d inevitably end up doing for that sausage company when he signed on board?

Everyone knows that the brand Eddy Merckx isn’t what it used to be. After Eddy sold the company, it kind of went in a different direction. Ok, it totally went in a different direction. Not that the classic Merckx frames suffer from this modern association but there’s something to be said about pedigree and integrity.

One thing’s for sure, Eddy has pedigree and in his old age, he’s maintaining his integrity. Now the brand? That’s up to you to discuss. Take these three photos for instance, sent in by Klaus from Cycling Inquisition. He was in Belgium recently and met Eddy while at the factory.

I love the shot of “Eddy’s Bike”. Too good Klaus!

Oh and I’d still rather see him on a Molteni…
