according to the web page "each model is available in any color finish" but where do I get one?

If i wanted a Team SC in the EW colors as opposed to the normal EDT (silver and white not black and blue) who would I have to talk to?

No, no LBS is a Merckx dealer so they cant help me.

In the US, contact the distributor, Gita. I think their website is www.gitabike.com. I only had a choice between the Domo colors or the stars and stripes.

There is a list of Merckx dealers on the www.gitabikes.com web site. If you don't have a local dealer, you might want to try www.gvhbikes.com, which has some of the best prices on Merckx frames. I believe you can order almost any Merckx frame in other colors, but it would have to be a special order that could take several months.

I know this because I have recently contacted Gita about ordering a steel frame. They said I could order a new frame in any of their current (or past) colors, with a 3-4 month turnaround time. The exceptions are their ti frames, which only come in brushed ti finish -- unless you order from Coloradocyclist.com, which can get them painted through a local business (spectrum powderworks).
If you can 'suffer' with the domo scheme...WrigleyRoadie

GVH knocked $400 dollars off the price of a frame and fork recently. It's at 1495 now... www.gvhbikes.com
