According to an interview with Eddy Merckx in an old Winning magazine that I have, for large frames, he used a mixture of SLX and SPX tubing but still used the SLX sticker. I have a full SPX Bottecchia that is much stiffer than the Merckx. The Merckx also has a much lower bottom bracket, which I believe contributes to the flexibility.
