I love those Merckx SC frames ... if I had the $$$ I'd be riding one dressed up in full Lotto-Domo colors.
Very coolMaverick

nice ride quality, worth every penny

difference between the lotto domo and domo farm frites (2002 and 2003) is that the seat tube for 2003 model is slightly larger compared to the previous. ride quality should be equally good. i would assume that the 2003 frames to be slightly stiffer compared to the 2002 model
do you find the slack seat tube angle more comfortable? (nm)velocity

comfortable, very nice for centuries.

from my personal view, the slack angle is gives you a rather relaxing position for long rides
Well, it's a beaut!velocity

A Merckx is in the mix for my next (dream) bike. My current seat tube is steep. I need to check out the difference myself. I may wind up going custom.
