    Belgian Tripel

    With a mixture of dumb luck, frustration, impulse, and no common sense I have some new frames. At one point I wasn't sure I'd have any frames. The Corsa Extra is a 57 from the Netherlands. The MXL's are 57 (yellow) and 59 arrived yesterday from Rashid. There are a few minor nicks here and there but nothing serious. The build out will be a mixture of Chorus and Record with Neutron tubulars and a white San Marco Regal saddle. Thank you Innergel for originally getting this ball rolling.

    Wow, getting three top flight bikes at once, that's just ridiculous, something that I would never...oh wait!

    Seriously, you done great kid. My fave has to be the "telekom-like" MX Leader. Pretty rare and ultra beautiful. Will get back to you on that stem, may have one for you.....

    Love the blue and pink MXL....never seen that colorway before!

    Congrats on such a huge haul. I would be happy with one of those bikes, much less all three!

    p.s., great choice with the Karmeliet too!

    +1. I love that yellow paint scheme.

    How are you going to decide which one to ride?
