Hi Fixed Gear Gallery,

Nice website you have! I build fixed gear bikes in Holland and I would =

like to submit my latest fixed gear bike. I've attached some pictures of my Eddie Merckx track bike and this is =

what I would like to say about the bike:

- -

This is an original Eddie Merckx steel lugged track frame (60cm) and original fork. It is super slim and light. The original paintwork was =

really bad so the frame is sandblasted and powder coated in RAL5012. The front fork has its original chrome; check out the crème Merckx =

logo on the top!

The new wheels are custom made by with Rigida polished aluminum rims, =

stainless steel spokes and Miche Pista hubs. The tires are beige Schwalbe Durano, folding type. The original Miche crank (48t) is manually polished, just like the pedals, 3TTT stem and handlebars and Kalloy seatpost. A super strong half link silver chain drives the 18t Miche sprocket.

The handlebar grips are handmade from old leather ladies boots (thanks =

to my girlfriend) and sowed together with greasy rope. The color of the grips match the dark brown Brooks saddle.

I hope you will submit the pictures to your site! More pictues and info are available on my website.

Thank you very much.
