Merckx My Corsa

I had posted in Pro thread about the Corsa Steel Merckx Oliver Nassen road in final stage of TDF this year
Naesen_Corsa_1_4_Copyright_Eddy-Merckx-1220x813.jpg

The My Corsa custom "Merckx Blend of Columbus Spirit HSS tubing and Columbus Xcr tubing with 130x9mm rear stays."
goes for 3299 Euros frame & fork

But they also have some ready made steel

The Strada "Merckx Premium Steel " with carbon fork goes for 2499 built with either Potenza or Ultegra
Or 899 Euros frame & fork.
Seems a decent msrp & will probably be a bit less from dealers?
I think they will do well & possibly a good direction for the now Ridley/Diepensteyn owned Merkx company

Have not seen weights yet

Love the concept, execution is not ideal- the paint and graphics alone look really shitty.

I cannot really say about the paint till I see a better live pic

Yeah graphics rather plain but I like that & think with the Corsa they were going for the
old Molteni look

Also the Corsa can be had any way/color you want it

The graphics options they showed on the GCN show looked alright, more of a vintage style panel design.

Yeah I think that was the idea.
I think it is a good direction
Since Ridley has the carbon well done already & Merckx can be retro

I also like that more steel options becoming available. :thumbup:

I think it’s the new Merckx font that looks nasty- just like the ugly ass carbon frames they made pre ridley. Love that steel is getting more attention!

Edit- hats off to them for making a decent looking fork that aligns nicely with the headtube.

There are no Merckx bikes like the ones from the 80's & 90's imo.
