You are bidding on an Eddy Merckx road bike, 61cm frame, Shimano 105 groupset. Wheels are Mavic Ksyrium Equipe.

This bike was just finished in the past week, rebuilt from the ground up with a brand new 105 gruppo. It has been ridden once, just for the memories. I was going to keep it forever, but decided to sell it to make way for a new project coming May 8th.

The frame is a 2000 model ‘Alu’, made from Columbus Altec tubing, with tubular polished alloy forks. It’s a really beautiful bike, made in the days when bicycles were art. The rear stays are also polished alloy for that classic look. The frame has a few chips, I've shown them in the photos. There’s also the usual scuffs and marks from derailleur clamp and bottom bracket fitment.

Don't be fooled by the age, though. This is a modern bicycle to ride; every component has been hand-picked for style and performance. The bike weighs in as you see it here at only 9.8kg, and it is really lovely to ride (of course, it’s an Eddy Merckx).

  • Shifters 105 5700
  • Crankset 175mm, Silver, 130mm, 53/39
  • Ultegra bottom bracket
  • 105 5701 F & R mechs
  • 105 12-25 cassette and 10sp chain
  • 105 Brakeset
  • Selle Italia Maxflite Gel Flow saddle
  • Ritchey ‘Classic’ seat post and stem, both polished alloy
  • 1-1/8 steering stem conversion, polished alloy
  • Maxxis Columbiere folding 700 x 23 tyres
  • Lezyne CNC polished alloy bottle cages
  • Campagnolo headset

The bike will be delivered without the pedals and computer you see in the photos. I can leave them on for an extra $250.

If you’re looking for a Merckx, and want it to be beautiful yet a great performance bike, then this is it. Don't wait for permission, this is the Merckx you always wanted.

Pickup is from Parklea in Sydney on weeknights or weekends, or Lane Cove West during office hours.

Good Luck, and happy bidding!
