    Is there a term for a large collection of Merckxes? Gaggle? Pride? Actually if you get this one you will be slowing down. It will expand your fleet by only 25%, the last one one grew it by 33%

    Are any of the 4 a Team SC? Centaur and Proton and soooo proletarian for a collector like yourself. But then again -- What did you say the price was? How many days since your last acquisition? How bad is the itch?

    No SC's.

    Corsa SL

    Corsa Extra (7-11)

    MX Leader

    AX

    Don't mind Centaur, it works well.


    Less than $1000.

    I loved those Domo Farm Frites paint jobs. Might as well add to your herd.

    It's not steel.

    It's not lugged.

    But it's pretty ................

    less than the cost of the Campy group on it .................

    You definitely have a Merckx problem. And I, apparently, I have a Waterford problem. (I will be working on fit as is, like lowering the stem and raising the saddle.... and then of course... rebuilding with Campy bits)

    Anyone want to buy a nice ~57cm 1100 or 2200 or both (depending on how this 1900 works out )

    Very nice

    Ha ha! That's a great pickup. I bought one earlier this year from a guy in Taiwan. You better put a lid on the piggy bank or start looking at another marque.
    i've got limited minutes left in life, don't waste my time

    I like your idea - put the lid on the piggy bank.

    I got this one for the cost of the Centaur group.
