The frame was designed by Eddy Merckx and like most Ti frames of this era built by Litespeed. This bike has a permanent place in the stable.

I bought this stem and bar combo from Mike at MASH, NOS!
A good friend of mine Nicko bought this headset in 04 and I've wanted it ever since. We recently swapped for a black Chris King. STOKED! I had the Wound Up fork laying around from a older track build and it fit the geo perfectly.
Chorus dirty drive train with some Time MTB pedals for city riding.
This bike has crazy over sized tubes to compensate the natural flex of TI. I usually stay away from adapters of shims but finding a 35mm clamp on front derailleur is nearly impossible, so I went with a Campy braze on clamp. Ti bottle cages as well!
The only Merckx branding on the bike. Love the subtlety.
