View Full Version : FS: Merckx MXL, Size 60

11-04-2008, 08:04 PM
After much deliberation, I've decided to part with my MX Leader.

This is number 45 of the last reissue round (tried to take picture of stamp). I'm the original owner bought from GVH Bikes. It has been completely babied (no rain). I live in Oregon and it rains a ton here. It's in very good/excellent condition. I'd say almost new except that I let a bone head friend ride it who dropped the chain and also didn't have the rear wheel in properly all on one ride leading to some paint removal. :crap: I've touched these spots up. There is also a very small paint ding on the down tube from a fight in the garage with another bike. Eddy won. The other bike looks much worse.

Size 60.
Here's the very brief geo specs I have:
ST TT STA Setback
60 58.3 72 18.5

$1,200 for the F/F plus shipping.

Beautiful bike. I think $200 is the most you can get through the cashback offer, though.

nice bike. wish it was smaller.

That's hot. If it was a 62 or 63, I might be salivating uncontrollably.

Good point. Back to the old drawing board. :beer: Just trying to be a good 'ole money grubbing American and maximize my return. I'll figure something out with the buyer.

can I get a good picture of the head lugs please?

Let me know if this is what you where hoping for. Those are not marks in the paint, but reflections from the flash.

Thanks for the interest. I'll be out of town until Nov 15th.

New bike incoming. Eddy needs to go.

Help me stimulate the economy in CT.

pm replied to. Here's a pic of the main touchup. The flash is obviously screwing up the color. The bike is not orange.

What's the HT lenght?

What's the HT lenght?

As near as I could measure, 20 cm. I measured from the center rings on the headset top and bottom. If the measurment should be from just what is exposed, it's 19.1 cm.

I couldn't find any geo charts online.

As a point of reference, my 62cm Merckx has a measured headtube of 20.6cm

I'd guess that the ~19cm measurement below is pretty accurate just based on relative proportions for that frame size.

hope this helps.....great looking bike that will make someone VERY happy!
