I'm looking for a stable steel road bike that's also responsive. Oh yeah, I've always wanted a Merckx too!
Thanks

I have a steel merckx corsa 0.1 and love it! i have built, ridden and sold, three other road/race rigs and somehow always seem to end up back on the merckx. it's not a lightning quick handling crit bike, but i don't worry about leaning it into a turn at 30+! descends like it's on rails and climbs as fast as i can get it up the hill! did i mention it's 6 years old and still rides great? i put a profile bsc fork on it, and it only rode better. get a steel merckx, you will not be disappointed!
plus it's damn fine lookin!

I have a 12+ year old Merckx Century frame set up as my rain bike. It's a nice ride. Make sure the geometry/fit works for you.
