Hi all,

Just seeking some opinions about this item which the owner offered me for SGD1,000 (est USD 730) with the following specs:

* Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra Road Bike Frame
* Lugged Steel Frame in Good Condition
* 51cm Seat 51cm Top Tube Center to Center
* Belgian handmade Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra frame in Columbus SLX steel.
* Motorola team colour
* Easton EC90 superlite carbon fork
* Chris King Headset

Please let me have your generous opinions which either proves it as a gem or a waste of money.

Rgds,
Pat

The carbon fork makes baby Jesus cry. And I don't love the other bits (stem, seatpost, etc) but the frame looks pretty cherry. Those used SLX bikes seem to go for anywhere between $500 and $1100, so it seems to be about average.
