Thanks for reading this.
I have the opportunity to by a 3 year old Eddy Merckx 1XM frameset (56cm) for a VERY reasonable price. This will be my first real road bike as I now ride a 6 year old mountain bike. I'm 5' 9 1/2" with a 32" inseam. I should probably get a 54cm bike, but it sounds like too good a deal to pass up.
I already have some parts to put on a frameset consisting of 105, Ultegra SL, FSA SL-K and Mavic Ksyrium Elite. I do plan on taking it to a bike shop close to where I pick it up just to get an opinion. From what I've read, this frameset is good for comfortability. Lance doesn't have to worry about me passing him .
I'm 55 and plan to ride just to ride for health reasons. I want to stay healthy!!! LOL
Thank you for your opinions.
