Nice... there is a frameset in this paint, my size, on eBay right now. Terribly tempting and this isn’t helping!

51 seat and 52 top tube

I have only ridden it once because we are sorting some issues with the bars. I have that Toupe on another bike and went that way. I'll see, maybe hunt for a Regal or something.

I won't talk you out of it. I have only ridden it once because we are still sorting some things, but boy does it "go" when you stomp on the pedals.

Finally riding the Merckx and took a few additional photos of all the Campy goodness.

Bike rides great, really accelerates and slices through corners. I have 23s on their now, will put some wider on at some point.
