That is certainly different!

You don't see many Merckx cross bikes out there....What's the frame material? Titanium?
I gotta say that the older Merckx lettering have far more class.

Good looking ride tho!

it's a thin aluminium, it is a nice riding bike and quite light. The older cross bike was kind of a throwback, but the new one has a more normal geometry 1 1/8 size steerer. The one achillies in the non replaceable derailer hanger, kind of an oversight on an expensive bike, plus you have to use the Campy internal headset and I hate having to buy Campy products. I find the bike is a very nice riding cross bike so far, will be racing it in the fall so we''ll see how she holds up to all that abuse.

In erms of looks, I don't really care but I think it looks OK, that's the only color it comes in. I like the older lettering better also, this is my third Merckx.
