Gettin' warmer, time to ride some...


It looks somewhat newer than my supposed 1985 Merckx Pro. Another indication that mine is actually older. Nice build!

Hope to

Hope we can hook up for a ride out in the country around the triangle one of these days when it does not feel like we're living in Northern Maine. Just a BRUTAL winter for the southeast. Dig your Merckx, which is really only a breath away from a De Rosa of that era as ole Ugo had his hands all over the Merckx formation. Love this era of Italian bike geometry. Look forward to hitting the back country on these beasts.


Great looking Eddy

Excellent build, hope to see it in person this year.
