Merckx Mondays
MerckxLR-06

Photos by Marty Wood

It’s not everyday that I get a Merckx Mondays submission featuring a practically NOS Faema Merckx, shot in a studio nonetheless. Todd Schmidt is the owner of this bike and Marty Wood shot the photos. Both of which work at Q in Minneapolis. I met Marty during Frostbike and he said he had a Merckx to share…

Todd picked this up while he was working for Wares’ Cycle in Milwaukee. He was 16 when he started at Wares’ and instantly became overwhelmed with all things cycling. Back then, the heroes had frame companies. Names like DeRosa, Lemond, Colnago, Motta, Moser and of course, Merckx.

Fast forward to modern day. Todd, like many people, still want to relive the days of yore (i.e. the steel age). A random friend sent a note to him about a customer selling this very bike: a 1985 Eddy Merckx Professional made from Columbus SL and it wasn’t some ordinary factory paint, it was in the Faema Team livery.

Below is a rather lengthy description of what Todd did to restore this bike, which I won’t even begin to paraphrase. If you’re looking for a good read and photos, check out more below!

M-m-m-molteni Monday! While Tracko’s got a sweet Merckx Mondays post up, I’m adding to the bike coveting with this sick Molteni Pista up on eBay. If I had the money and if this thing was a little bit bigger, I’d swoop it up for sure. Some background, this is being sold by a reader, who’s a photographer in need of some new glass. I’ve been there before and it’s a tough sacrifice to make.

See the rest of Anthony’s Eddy Merckx Pista in high res here or try your luck, bidding on it at eBay!

The Cinelli Bootleg Hobo

While I’ve shown you photos of Cinelli’s new touring bike before, I don’t think I’ve given a proper introduction. The Bootleg Hobo was developed as a fully-loaded touring bike, spec’d with a triple crankset, front and rear racks, proper touring wheelbase and a mid-trail geometry. You can see more details at Cinelli and the Hobo is in stock and ready to ship to your local Cinelli dealer.

Mash SF: Rainier Schaefer

Leave it to Mash to put out a minute-long video that packs the stoke. Rainier is an exceptionally-strong rider and seeing him climb Fillmore Street like that is impressive!
