Whooooaaaa just because there's unfair teasing in your marriage doesn't mean you can bring it here, give us the whole frame! The front end looks amazing, is it anodized? The top looks like ano and the down tube almost looked like a brushed finish over bead-blasted but it could just be the light.

Can you enlighten me (us) what it is that makes this frame so special?
Being a retro noob, I don't realy like the shapes of those tubes and the fork is just ugly, harshly said

But I suppose there is something about the frame, history?

Personally I am really a fan of odd/unusual shaped frames like this one. The Merckx was a one-off prototype, probably built for the spring classics.

Oke, that explains a bit :wink:

Is the seattube as relaxed as it is looking in the picture?
And is this one also made by Litespeed?

Does anyone else chuckle when their tab on this thread does the following?

Or am I the only one quite that immature?

I can't stop looking at this leather wrap for some reason! The idea is fantastic, although I think I would go for black leather with white diamond stitching. Maybe I'll experiment with something like this if I can get my hands on some leather and a sewing machine that can handle it. Now, I wonder if I can find leather that is lighter and softer than my current tape.
