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 proud 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 completed with a Campagnolo Shamal wheelset.
A top class racing steed in every detail. An excellent ride.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
