hi all,

Hoping to get some advice on a couple bikes I'm looking at by Eddy Merckx. Obviously I know the rider but not super familiar with his bikes and or how they ride. The ones I'm looking at are a
Sallanches 64
Mournex 69
Both are fully built up with Shimano 105.
Wondering if anyone familiar with these bikes and or the brand in general can talk more about them.
Thanks!

The Sallanches 64 is great for endurance. A bit heavy with the RS011 entry wheels.
The 105's are good but if you have the opportunity to go for Ultegra R8000 immediately, I would take it.

Get some lighter wheels and you will have a great bike for any purpose except for pure racing.
