Merckx Domo Farm Frites Mania (say that fives time really fast)

So, there I was, checking eBay for new and interesting things, and I found this.

Looks like a team replica, and not overpriced! Columbus Zonal, 54cm, Carbon fork…

”Hey!”, I said to #bestwifeever, “Can I build you a trainer bike to keep you healthy during that long, cold, Australian winter?”

“Sure you can…”, she said. “…knock yourself out.”

I think it’ll be simple. Shimano 8 x 1 will do, and a nice set of wheels. Maybe even flat bars, seeing as how it’s for the trainer.

Stay tuned!

Update: it’s finished!
