I just put a deposit on it, and need some help figuring this Merckx out:
80s EDDY MERCKX CORSA EXTRA frameset (OVAL tubes !) | eBay
Cable routing over bottom bracket suggests early 80s. But paint scheme suggests early 90s. The only oval tube Merckx frames I know of are the MXLs, and they were more elliptical than a straight oval. Am wondering if this was a one off build...any care to enlighten?
More importantly, if any one has one of these, how's the ride? Early 80s aero frames were supposed to be harsh but am hoping Merckx has massaged that away...
