    They are nice frames - the serious pro bike of the late 90's.

    Flexy when you stomp on them, but otherwise comfortable.

    Stomped a bit too hard and broke the steerer tube on mine today (no name carbon), so I've ordered a new one from Nashbar - one of the few remaining places with 1" threadless forks.

    Back then I thought “well there'll be other days”

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    Hi all

    Here is my merckx alu (not sure which model), bought it complete on ebay.
    The pic was taken on the way to service.
    Like it so far.

    I got this EM Premium (2003-2007?) frame via auction and put it together based on how I ride.

    Auction pics:




    The 2.42 pound frame came with a 1.05 pound carbon fork (a Performance Bike Forte Team Carbon with aluminum steerer).

    I built it up as a 1x10 (42t / 11-30t):













    16.86 pounds using a Gevenalle (formerly Retroshift) shifter. What can I say? I just can't get into brifters. I prefer friction.

    I'm changing out the bar tape to white Cinelli cloth and a Brooks C17 Cambium saddle.

    The first 32 miles and it feels like I'm floating on air.

    Update: Final configuration.

    I couldn’t contain my excitement, so I am posting a few pics of a freshly re-sprayed MXL frame before the build (new 2014 Dura Ace gruppo, C9000 Wheels). Thanks A.Wanta! It will be back on the road with another 15K miles put on it before it pauses again. The paint schemes trending to orange are non-typical yes, say what you will, but the legacy paint schemes have lost their allure since been muddied. Full build pics maybe three weeks away...2004_MerckxMXL_2.jpg2004_MXL_merckx1.jpg

    This thread has been too good to let die...

    I'm shopping for a 54 ctc Corsa Extra or Century, '89-'92 vintage, if anyone has any leads on one in nice shape (frameset OK).

    I can help bump with a build.
