It's been a long time...

It's been a long time since our last post here. Not because of being slack, mind you. Still in the wings is The Sheriff's Merckx Ti, and still to be photographed is Rewind's Team Tekelom Merckx MX Leader.

I know this is a little confusing, as there are pictures of a Team Telekom Merckx MX Leader below... Well actually this belongs to a nice fellow named Anthony, and these are a few quick pics that were taken before the bike was bundled up and shipped off to London. Until it left Rewind's place we were amassing quite a fleet of Telekom Merckxs.

The only part I would change on this is perhaps the seatpost - to a campagnolo aero - and maybe the pedals. It's going to be a "commuter (!)" hence the double sided pedals. Bit nice to be a commuter eh?

An original Telekom Merckx MX Leader in fantastic shape, built by Rewind with new Campagnolo Athena 11s, Campagnolo Record hubs to Mavic Open Pros by DT Comp spokes (a staple favourite wheelset of the Rewind crew), and new reissued Cinelli 1A and Giro D'Italia bars.

The only regret is that we weren't able to get all the Merckxs together for a bunch ride before it left. Rides beautifully; hope you love it Anthony!
