Eppy’s SL Eddy Merckx Pista

I was absolutely blown away at the number of Eddy Merckx bikes I saw while in Jakarta but the owner whose collection took the cake was Eppy. You’ll see more, later today in Merckx Mondays but for now, I wanted to showcase his immaculate Eddy Merckx SL Pista. I don’t know about you, but when I see a red Merckx Pista, I think of Andy’s MAX Merckx (which I don’t think I ever posted my photos of?). While SL is no MAX, this bike is strikingly beautiful. See more below.

    Wow- that bike is near perfect. I love that color, and the way the whole bike just fits together is almost mesmerizing.

    But let me ask a stupid question- What is Merckx? I know he was a cyclist, but I see him mentioned on PiNP all the time in a wide range of ways. Anyone mind explaining?

    No engraving on the (flat) fork crown?

    • SL Corsa models tended to lack those details. Corsa Extra (SLX) models had them….

  • Picture #3 shows a missing screw on the toe clip.  Used to happen to me a lot.
    May I recommend this solution:Threadlocker, Star Washer, Locking Washer and Nut  (be wary of star nuts and nylon nuts, they have issues)
