The MX-Leader was one of the strongest steel frames, Eddy Merckx developed in the 1990s. The oversized and specially shaped Columbus Max tubes were fitted into evenly strong oversized lugs. This construction made the frame slightly heavier, but boy did it ride well! The frame is legendary for its power transfer, its comfort and safe handling characteristics. Cornering, sprinting, rapid descents - the MX Leader mastered all disciplines brilliantly.
So good are its riding qualities that many people believe it is the single best lugged steel racing frame ever made.
We are happy to present to you this Eddy Merckx MX Leader from the 1990s in original condition and equipped with top level parts - Campagnolo Record 8-speed groupset.
A top class racing steed in every detail. An excellent ride.
