    2003 Eddy Merckx Elite Bike

    I recently acquired a 2003 Eddy Merckx Elite. I was wondering, if anyone here, knows anything about this model? Such as the frame material, etc. It has all Campagnolo Centaur components and Campagnolo Proton wheels.

    Also, the the frame measures, 22.5" from the center of the crank to top of the seat tube, and 21.5" top tube center to center. Is this a 54CM or a 56CM bike? The frame size, feels nearly the same as my 56CM Trek Madone SL 52.

    Here are some photos of the bike attached below

    It's aluminum, and I'd be very surprised if it didn't have a sticker somewhere that said what alloy. It's also going to be measure/sized in cm not inches. Most likely center to top.

    I did some further research, and found it's a "EM Extralight 7005" aluminum frame.
