If you're operating under the assumption that riding an Eddy Merckx is out of reach, it's time to stop operating and start shopping at Nashbar. We just got a bunch of them and the price is, shall we say...amazing. The SXM Frame set is full monocoque carbon, so it's stiff, responsive, and doesn't creak when you're hammering in a sprint or up an incline. The full carbon fork is has the perfect balance of stiff control with some very nice road vibration dampening. Your ship has come in, and it says "Merckx" on the down tube.
