Inspired by B21's post in the Merckx thread

http://forums.roadbikereview.com/showpost.php?p=1644932&postcount=157

This is how how I have spent my summer vacation, so far.

Only Merckx in the collection so I don't think it will be allowed in the Merckx thread,

Fausto Coppi, triple butted, Columbus Genius. Dura Ace 8 speed.

De Rosa Primato, Columbus EL/OS. Chorus 9 speed.

Dancelli. Columbus Max. Centaur 10 speed.

Merckx Titanium AX. SRAM Rival, 10 Speed.

All great to ride.

I finished it this morning, and then rode it for 10 minutes to the Pizza joint and back for a slice at lunch.

So far I really like it!! :D

Are those Mavic P-R's I spy on the Primato?

Yes....I am envious. Great looking collection TMB.
Holy Hannah, I didn't think I'd taken any pics that close up.

Yup P-R's on Dura Ace hubs with a Shiftmate for the Chorus shifters.

The Coppi has a set of GL 330's and the Ti AX has a GL 330 front and GP4 rear.

The Dancelli is quite pedestrian - dura ace hubs on Open Pro clincher rims.

His pictures suck Kjmunc. They don't begin to do the frames justice, especially the Coppi. But they are all, in their own right, stunning. Ok, I am not too excited by the Merckx Ti, I admit, but the other three, well, I know where he lives........Christie Brinkley's husband spent $3000 / month on internet porn, we get it for free and we can look in Front of our wives!!!!!

You spent your summer vacation building them or riding them?
he did both actually. We rode together virtually every day I was there; he had built the De Rosa before I arrived. He built the Coppi and Dancelli after I left. I wonder if Gerri feels like a cycle Widow........actually he must not sleep, becasue he is the family man too....:confused:

Actually, I'm going to be there next week, watch out.
