Just wondering who makes the Ti Majestic for Eddy Merckx.
Is it Litespeed? If so which Litespeed model is it close to as far a tubing type etc. Also an Neg./Pos. comments on the Majestic please feel free to voice.
Thanks
I'm pretty sure it's still LitespeedRay Sachs

They've been making the Merckx ti bikes for a while. The tubes are probably similar to the Classic/Tuscany level. I have a ti AX from '98 that's pretty much the same frame (1 inch headset, but I don't think they've changed it otherwise). Very nice ride if you like Merckx geometry - I do, some like more aggressive geometry. I had a Litespeed Classic before this and despite the similarity in tubing and being made in the same plant, they ride very differently, with the Merckx being more stable and comfortable for me.

I did a little research on the Merckx Majestic, a Litespeed with Merckx geometry. GVH Bikes Inc has some Majestic frames with Reynolds Ouzo Pro forks in stock for $1295.
