Why selling:
Primary sport is cyclocross-building up new CX bike.

Sourcing/Carbon build:
In 2018 Race productions NV (the company behind Ridley bikes) took over bicycle brand Eddy Merckx. I specifically purchased the 2017-2018 model frame after meeting with the Merckx reps at Interbike in 2017. Until the buyout in 2018, the carbon frames were made in Italy by Oria, but it's safe to probably assume they are now (2019+ models) Asia-sourced carbon. Bike Radar did a great write-up about this model a few years back, but the biggest thing is the crazy deep aero tubing and powerbox bb, stiff, strong, and superb power transfer.
