You can see why we had fun with this bike. Here's Eddy Merckx racing for Faema on a red/white Faema framset in the 1969 Giro D'Italia. Wearing the leader's pink jersey, of course.

For us, it is a joy getting a bike to fit a customer so that he can really get the most out of his set of wheels. Come on in and talk to us about your needs and wants.
