My race season starts less than a month ahead, so I have to complete my race bike. Currently I'm riding a Merckx Team SC (scandium) bike - see topic "My Merckx Team SC"
. I will use this bike as well in some flat preparation races.
My goal: to build an UCI legal weight weenie bike, thus 6,8kg
Everything starts with the Eddy Merckx I've got sponsored. All affordable suggestions to build a decent, light race bike are welcome. The goal of this bike is to be perform well, to use highly reliable components for hard race use... and still be light, within the damn UCI-restriction.
I will update the first post of this topic every now and then (new picture, change the build list).
