I have recently ordered an Eddy Merckx MX leader frame . I am curious
to know if they are built in Europe or Asia. Any info would be
apreciated. Thanks.

Actually they are built in neither country. Eddie has hired Santa's elves in the off season to produce these high quality framesets. Haven't you ever wondered how even the tinyest of areas have such detail when it comes to quality? It's those tiny elven hands! Have a great Christmas!
Belgium, like Eddybianchi boy

Eddy Merckx frames are made in Belgium, where Eddy was born and lives. www.eddymerckx.be
