Eddy Merckx 525 Performance edition. I got this on Friday- following some amazing good fortune (thanks Rouleur and Belgian Blue Cycles). Haven't had a chance to ride it properly yet- just a try out on the trainer, but all seems good.
Swapped out the wheels for some of the Wiggle Prime ones that are on offer at the moment.
Can't wait to get it out on the road- if the rain ever stops :-)

    My eyes did not waver from that beautiful bike. If that bike was on a rubbish tip i would not have noticed.
  • It was the whole bike rather than frameset. I swapped the wheels out is all.
    If you go to the Eddy Merckx website, the 3 options are there (Ultegra, Di2 and Campy).
    They’re now part of Belgian Cycling Factory group. Same folks as Ridley.

    Lovely bike, was this the Rouleur Classic competition prize? If so, congrats!
  • It was, yes. Tremendously lucky result :-)

    Can't find a frameset but I want one. After Dirk, its the coolest bike on here. So much nicer than all that Trek rubbish that people harp on about.

    Big phat chapeau to that man. Well jell.

    Dirk will be in third when my Donhou arrives.

    OP, this is a lovely bike.
