Eddy Merckx Team Domo-Farm Frites, 2001

Team Domo are a successful Belgian cycling team, active in various liveries from the early 80s. They still exist now, as Team Deceuninck–Quick-Step, with many European race victories.

In 2001 and ’02, the team was sponsored by ‘Farm Frites’, a brand of potato chips. The Team was very successful in their two years – in ‘01, they completed a rare podium sweep of the Paris-Roubaix race, known as the toughest single-day race in the European calendar.

The Team returned in ‘02 for another win of the Paris-Roubaix, and a stage win at the Tour de France.

The Team’s bikes were made in Belgium, by Eddy Merckx, and this frame is a factory replica of the Team Domo-Farm Frites colours, and is quite rare.

Paint was restored in 2018 by Star Enamellers – it’s immaculate.

Currently, the bike is built as a commuter or casual ride. It runs a Shimano Alivio 9 x 1 drivetrain, with a custom 150mm crankset. This will suit a rider 152cm – 160cm.

There’s carbon bars and a Fizik saddle for comfort, plus gearing is 12-32 on the rear for versatility. It sports a 36/32 first gear – great for climbing hills.

With a lightweight Bontrager Race wheelset and some neat blue Vittoria tyres, this is a very comfortable bicycle, capable of both short and long rides.

It can be quite easily converted to a full-on racer, with road bars and a modern 20 or 30-speed drivetrain. Ask us for pricing on customising it specifically to your own needs.
