Merckx’s Weekend in NYC


Merckx’s Weekend in NYC

7-11 with DA 7400 group

To continue the Merckx Mondays post from today; this past weekend was Eddy’s promotional visit to NYC. Along with his Ride in the Park on Saturday, he was at Strictly Bicycles in Fort Lee, New Jersey signing autographs for an hour.

Side note on the 7-11 pictured above. How’d you get that DA stem to take the 26.4 Giro de Italia bars? I thought the stems were 25.4 clamp? Spanner?

I’ve been waiting for more shots to surface on Flickr of his signing and visit to NYC but alas, nothing has popped up yet. Luckily for the sake of this posting, Chari and Co was there and I’ve poached a few shots from their blog.

Really bums me out that I missed all this. Too much going on for me to be on the bike all day and the weather’s got me feeling ill. Shame. Maybe next time.

Thanks to the Chari blog for the pics and sucks about your derailleur man!
