    I'll agree. The merckx is not one of the good ones, but a lower end model in the recognizable livery. It sounds like you need a bike to ride the crap out of. As a daily rider I'd go with the schwinn.

    what kind of entry level bike? My guess is they will cost as they do now and did back in the 1970s, a similar price proportionate with the mean level of income in the country. Maybe the mean level of...
