    After Eddy Merckx signed my Merckx Strada, I couldn't find myself riding it anymore. So I picked up another Merckx and swapped all the parts over. Here is the result:

    Sorry. To my old eyes, a classic looking lugged steel frame and aero wheels just looks wrong. Like putting 20 inch wheels and 30 series tires on a E-Type Jag or a 55 Bel Air. People do it but that doesn't make it right. I am wondering about this thread. Is this supposed to be a beauty contest or a "how much money I spent" contest? I ask because there are some very pricey bikes here that are downright homely to look at.

    I can put my Mavic Aksiums on there if you want.

    Too bad I don't ride for your pleasure.

    How do you ride that thing with no pedals? Or is it just for display?

    Most of these carbon fiber "Beyond Thunderdome" monstrosities leave me cold but this is a good looking bike. Love the electric blue bar tape.

    Enjoy.

    Who said anything about riding? I thought this was a beauty contest.

    You are correct. If someone can't take the criticism then this is not the thread to be posting a picture of their bike in.

    i personally love the look of the of contrasting thin steel tubing with deep section rims.
    nothing wrong with updating the style of something classic with new functional pieces.

    take pro touring cars for exacmple:
