I know that frames can be bought from places in the UK and Europe at sigificant discounts over U.S. dealers. Can anyone recommend a UK/European dealer that has a good price on the Eddy Mercxk Team SC? I have ben searching over the internet and can't seem to find a place that carries them.
Thanks in advance

Found this place after a quick Google search (merckx sc uk)

Looks like their prices have V.A.T. factored in. I'd email them for a quote.

Good luck on your bike hunt. I just bought mine from International Bikes up in the Boston area. I must tell you that the bike is fantastic. I find myself getting up earlier in the morning just to check it out. My wife wishes that I'd do the same for her.

Enjoy!

Thanks. It sounds like they are great bikes, just a little pricey. I don't really need another bike (this would be my 4th) but I can rationalize it if I convince myself I am getting a "great deal"

I have priced the Merckx frames both domestically and internationally. Really didn't find any difference in cost. The best price I found was at www.gearlink.com . I would give them a call, ask for Merrick, and tell Merrick, Clay told you to call. He priced the Domo team frame for $1500 to me and a friend.

Make sure of one thing. They've updated the frame on the new models. They've gone from a 1" steerer to 1 1/8". If you want a bike with a carbon steerer...that makes quite a bit of difference in strength and no shim is needed for your stem. Down tube is ovalized instead of round with a bit of graphics change. Just make sure that the price they're quoting is for the new one and not the old.

Good Luck.
