• Two really nice steel road frame-sets and a compatible modern carbon fork. These could be built-up period correct, or with a modern groupset (what I did). Will be particularly sad to see the Eddy Merckx go!

    Components from splitting these builds going up here... https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/3605­20/

    1. Pinarello Asolo (Pinarello Dolmen Oversized)

    • Top tube 57cm CTC
    • Seat tube 58.5cm CTC
    • Pinarello Dolmen Oversized tubing (I believe this is rebranded Dedacciai)
    • Chromed seat stays, chainstays and fork legs
    • Pinarello drop-outs
    • Takes a 1 inch threaded headset (I used the modern Campagnolo Record 1" one)
    • 70mm threaded BB shell (so Italian standard I believe)
    • Internal cable routing
    • Takes modern recessed bolt caliper brakes
    • Braze on front derailleur
    • Clearance for 700cx25mm. However, I managed to squeeze in a 27mm at the back and used a Columbus Minimal carbon fork.
    • 100mm fork spacing, 130mm rear spacing (modern road)
    • Embossed Pinarello logos on fork crown, seat cluster, brake bridge, BB shell
    • A few paint chips and the decals are peeling off - apparently a common problem with this era of Pinarello - the head badge has completely gone. No dents.

    2. Columbus Minimal Fork (Full Carbon)

    • Quality carbon fork from Columbus, designed for 1" steel frames
    • 250mm of threadless steerer
    • Clearance for at least 700cx27, but could certainly go a bit bigger
    • Takes a modern recessed bolt caliper brake
    • 100mm spacing (modern road) for a QR skewer
    • Also included are the expander and Columbus branded top cap
    • I am the original owner of this fork (purchased from Tredz) and have always tightened to the correct torque using a Park Tools wrench.
    • Generally excellent condition. A few marks of the steerer from the stem and headset cups - I checked these with my LBS and they said the fork is good to go.
    • I also have a compatible headset (Cane Creek 40) in good condition. Let me know if interested...

    All items located in Camberwell SE5. I can post, but this will be last option for me since it's a bit of a nightmare at the moment.

  • Dibs on the Merckx

  • Second dibs on mercx

  • Unlikely 3rd dibs on the merckx

  • Dibs on the fork please - messaged!

  • shame, too big for me

  • 2nd dibs on the forks + headset combo

  • Fork sold, Eddy Merckx sold

  • Merckx looks like mine (1992 Corsa Extra in Kelme livery). Built it recently as a MGOOF.

    (Have a bump).
