A frame that needs no further introduction.
The original Domo Farm Frites Eddy Merckx Team SC, in traditional geometry.
I rode the exact same color/model back in 2002, albeit slight changes in the graphics. Sold it, upgraded to Merckx's GX2/MXM in 2004, and regretted since.

Based on the downtube graphics, I'm pretty certain that this is a 2001 model.
Saving this up for a later built, still contemplating to go for a period correct 10 speed Record, or 11 speed... :?:

I love these frames, it should be good whatever you put on it.

I've had two - and that is, in my mind, the best livery in a long, long, long time.

My first one was a 2000 and was made with DEDA tubing and had a horizontal TT. It got slammed by a car and ripped the top tube and down tube like paper - the fork stayed completely intact.

The second one was an actual DOMO painted frame and had a few changes to the paint from my previous frame, but had a wicked slope to the TT. The buyer I got it from had dented the top tube - it was too sloping for my tastes.

The broken one, I have it hanging in my basement with all my bike stuff.

ENJOY!!!! It's a great frame

You amaze me with you great taste one more time.
I agree, whatever you put on this sweet frame, it will be awesome. As long it's not Shimano

Sweet frame! Never did like the carbon tape on the chain stays though.
