He might sell it faster if he didn't have almost ALL of the sidebar detail items wrong.

Yep, and up until a few weeks ago it was listed as "bike" or "hardtail bike", no mention of Specialized, Rockhopper, etc.

The pics show deep snow because that's how long this thing has been on the market. (Also the fork should be a gray unicrown)

They had a lower level range contracted out to mass bike boom builders At first I think. Sort of like Anquetil.

Maybe, but personally, I like the replacement better. I suppose that should alert interested parties to be careful when checking the bike...

Ah, good!

I thought it was a Monviso, just like mine. This is an extremely fine riding bike for a great price if I checks out. I got my mint one for like $900 with a full Dura Ace build and still feel like I stole it each time I take it out.

^^^^^ I know the OS tubing can create a trompe l'oeil, but that looks smaller than a 56 as listed. At least I hope it's too small......

Yes/no.

Obviously not an Eddy Merckx Cycles, which began after his racing career and started with brazed-on cable guides and shift bosses.

Both DeRosa and Kessels made Silver bikes when Eddy was with Fiat/CA. This bike is neither.


But the colorůLavender?

Those under contract and allowed to make bikes with his name included Kessels (Belgium), DeRosa (Italy) Colnago (Italy) Miayta, Japan and the lowly Falcon (England) which were Dept store quality at best.

This looks cheap French. I think its a sticker pack.

These earlier ones might have my favorite color scheme.

Still rides could use a tuneup and new brake pads but you can't beat this vintage beauty.
