Sold in mere hours. Thanks, Paceline!

I bought this last winter and rode a couple hundred miles. Now that my Rock Lobster refinish is done, I took the build off of the Merckx and am now offering it for sale.

Key specs:
-Columbus MXL tubing - ala MAX
-Awesome "aero" bladed fork
-Clearance for 28c Vittoria Corsa G+ clinchers on wide rims (original run could only clear 25-26c tires)
-FD braze-on low enough for compact cranks (original run was only good for a 52t or larger big ring)
-Internal brake cable routing with guide for easy installation
-Low BB and short chainstays make this descend like a champ.
-Takes a 27.2mm post and "FSIT" Italian threaded bottom bracket
-Paint shows some use, but still looks awesome. Worst spots are around the dropouts, a little chainstay rub, and a chip by the lower headset cup.

-"Century" geometry: 57cm size, 56.8 TT, 72ยบ 39' STA, 16cm HT (see chart at bottom of post)
-Pictured saddle height: 775mm
-Pictured saddle setback: 80mm
-Pictured saddle -> bar drop: 85mm
-Pictured saddle -> bar reach: 572mm
-60mm of steer tube above the headset - plenty of room for fit adjustments.

Included parts:
-Silver Chris King 1" NoThreadSet headset + top cap
-DA downtube barrel adjusters
-1" -> 1 1/8" steer tube shim cut for a Thomson X2 (if you want it)
-I'll throw in a set of silver or black 1" headset spacers (whichever you'd like)
-Has Shimano Ultegra SM-BBR60 HollowTech II bottom bracket installed (I'll keep it if you're going to run a different style of crankset)
