Eddy has put his name on some cheap tut in his time.
Indeed, but that was before he retired and set up his own bike factory.

My Strada OS (Columbus Brain tubing) is the best road racing frame I've ridden. They are a bit quirky: Italian BBs and horizontal dropouts even in the mid-90s, but beautifully finished with little EM or Eddy Merckx engravings, and drippings of chrome. They're basically Italian bikes made in Belgium!

Well I went and had a look and had a run on it mounted on the sellers turbo and all worked well .

Paintwork is non original but tidy enough shame about the non original fork .

All seemed ok so we bought it home ^_^ along with a spare set of wheels .

I am the 3 rd owner the previous 2 both raced on it and it was originally built in 1987/8 so ties in with frame number , originally blue in colour with matching forks and had a Columbus decal but neither can remember what grade it was .

Just need to give it some miles now .
