This Merckx Monday is brought to you by L’Eroica and Fyxomatosis. I love seeing Andy’s photos from this event. See more here!
Father Tu gets his hands on some of the most insane bikes to photograph. Including this vintage Cinelli Laser. Yep, this is no re-issue. This is one of the originals. See more at Father Tu’s Flickr.
Klaus from Cycling Inquisition supplied a few photos for a Merckx Mondays from his trip to the Eddy Merckx factory a while back. Well, his full story is now live on his site and it’s filled with great photos and a perfect early afternoon read. Check it out at Cycling Inquisition.
… and yes, this is 24 hours too late for a Merckx Mondays but I had to post it!
I’m one lucky guy. Since Tracko has “sworn off” posting anything but track bikes, I get all the radness that rolls through the doors at Golden Saddle Cyclery. The first of which, being the crème de la crème of the Fat Chance MTB line, the 10 year anniversary Fat.
This is no ordinary Fat Chance. The 10th anniversary frames came with a titanium, etched plate (this one’s 113 out of 200), a BOI Yo Eddy Fork and complete True Temper OX tubing. Most of which came outfitted with a full Campagnolo Record OR gruppo and were highly sought after at the $1450 MSRP (frameset). The weight? Around 23 pounds. Not too shabby and that paint job…
Those who want to read up more on the 10th Anniversary frame can check out this article from the MTB forums.
Kyle did this one justice with tons of detailed photos and he even tracked down some Campagnolo OR brake levers to replace the Avid models currently on the bike. See for yourself in the Gallery!
Oh man, this new project from Vans looks RAD!
“Vans joins forces with renowned BMX brand Haro to commemorate a history of classic BMX design and originality. The fated partnership between the two brands brings forth a memorable collection of Vans x Haro footwear, apparel and accessories influenced by the early days of BMX style and the birth of the first freestyle BMX frame, the Haro Freestyler.
With more than 30 years of innovation, Haro Bikes champions an iconic heritage in BMX product design. With the introduction of its first top-of-the-line Freestyle BMX bike in early 1984, Haro ignited a revolution in the growing sport of Freestyle, paving the way for radical tricks and inventive style. The partnership between Vans and Haro celebrates a strong dedication to BMX.
The original Haro Freestyler Master informs the Vans capsule with vintage Haro accents and signature color schemes straight from the bike frame. Once worn by freestyle BMX riders in the 80s, the original Vans Era and Sk8-Hi Reissue boasts Vans’ classic checkerboard print popular among BMX athletes, along with Haro’s signature green and blue colors taken directly from theFreestyler Master.The collection also includes a retro long sleeve t-shirt and racing pant emblazoned with the unforgettable blue, green, and white racing stripes. Two custom Vans x Haro logo tees and a poison green snapback finish off the collection.
To celebrate this master collaboration, Vans and Haro teamed up to recreate the Freestyler Master in a limited run that will only be available in Vans.com, Vans Facebook and Vans retail store giveaways. Visit vans.com and facebook.com/vans through the month of July for more information.
The entire Vans x Haro collection hits stores July 1, 2013 and will be available at vans.com/haro.”

This is like every Campagnolo collector’s dream. Richard Sachs is selling a complete set of NOS Campy rear derailleurs:
“For sale is my entire collection of Campagnolo derailleurs spanning the late 1950s through the late 1980s. This is among the most complete Campagnolo derailleur collections in existence. It may be the only collection that has every single dated Campagnolo NR rear derailleur in the condition listed here. It is comprised of only NIB/NOS (New In Box/New Old Stock) components. Everything shown for sale is new, never used, not a take-off, free of tool marks, and complete as packed the day it left the loading dock at Vicenza.
All the Nuovo Record derailleurs are marked as shown. They include PATENT, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 11, and NO DATE. Every derailleur comes with the original box and the original instruction sheet. Note:Other than hub locknuts (which are concealed in the assembly) and some Nuovo Record crank arms, I am not aware of any other Campagnolo item that was so overtly date-stamped by year of manufacture. This is a complete set of date-stamped rear derailleurs.
