View Full Version : My dream with Eddy Merckx

Posted this on RBR, but thought you Forumites might enjoy this.

Last night, I had one of the funniest and weirdest dreams I've had in a while. The gist of it was that I was in Eddy Merckx's factory/shop and Eddy himself was fitting me for a new custom frame. He seemed rather cavalier about it, and one funny thing he did was to put the 'downtube' shifter bosses on the top seat lug (this was a dream, remember). They seemed to be on a bit crooked, too. I was wondering exactly how that was going to work, sliding my hands back to the seat lug to shift.

Eddy asked me about frame material and I said, "Titanium."

Then the last thing he did was to slap a price tag on it, and it was something like $13,000. When I saw that, I was trying to think of a way to back out of the deal, but part of me was ready to just go ahead and bite the bullet.

I mean, how many times do you have the Man himself fit you to a frame, even if it is only in a dream?!

I woke up laughing about that one. Gonna have to watch the wine consumption with dinner, I guess.
