Eddy Merckx pursuit/crono/time trial frameset, measuring 59cm c-c along the seat tube.
Made from cutting-edge Columbus MAX tubing, with the unique MAX lugs on show. MAX tubing was notable for its
bi-ovalised form (the tubes are gently crimped horizontally at one end, and vertically at the other end), in addition to
being very thin and stiff. It was regarded as a great tubeset for taller riders, although of course everyone can enjoy
its qualities !
Building a MAX bike takes a great deal of skill, and this Eddy Merckx is a great example of the correct way to do it.
Ex-team bike, with the serial sticker on the top tube!
130mm rear spacing, perfect for building up with a mid-’90s Campagnolo Ergopower groupset.
Take care – 622 rear wheel and 571 front wheel – sloping top tube to get you down low !
In good, used condition. Has several small chips to the paint, and a very minor but visible dent on the top tube.
See the 8th picture for details. The price reflects this !
Includes Suntour headset, which is in excellent condition.
