...for a non-WW rider. Got this new-to-me frame as my foray into road-cycling. Have been riding for a long time, but mostly MTB and got into CX a couple of years ago; had been using a 2nd set of wheels on the CX bike for road-riding. Saw this frame and thought its geometry should fit me (184cm, 93kg, long-ish torso, long arms and broad shoulders). It's bastardized because of the mixed brands with Campy and Shimano -- though, the "bastard" looks good to me and I wanted those components. My LBS put it together.

Frame: 2015 Eddy Merckx San Remo 76 (size 58/59); 2016 version has a very different geometry
FD: Ultegra 6870 Di2
RD: DA 9070 Di2
Crankset: DA 9070
Shifters: Ultegra 6870 Di2
Brake-set: Ultegra 6800
Stem: 3T Arx LTD @ 110
Bar: Zipp SL-70 Aero @ 44
Saddle: Berk, padded 150
Wheelset: Bora One 50
Tires: Schwalbe Pro One tubeless @ 25mm (measures 27.1) -- I know; Bora One is not tubeless.
Pedals: Speedplay Zero with after-market Ti spindles (yet to install)
Weight: 7.62kg as-is; should be around 7.5kg after installing Speedplay pedals and trimming the steerer-tube.

Nice! Has a perfect spot on the top tube for shouldering! ;)

Very nice - have been tempted by a San Remo frame myself.

Hope you enjoy your new ride!

I also ride a 2015 Eddy Merckx San Remo 76 and I'm thinking about a new wheelset (currently Fulcrum Quattro LG).
I'm looking for a full carbon clincher wheelset.
Are you happy with your Bora one 50's? And with the Campa-Shimano combination?
(Mine San Remo 76 has Ultegra di2 groupset)

Nice looking frame!
I don't like the Shimano-Campagnolo combo but that's me.
