Two interesting bikes on ebay that do not relate to this list directly, but, rather, indirectly....

First, this Colnago C-40, for your amusement. A better argument for steel, I can't imagine:


Second, this absolutely lovely bike from Eddy Merckx. If you put Nuovo Record stuff on it, it could almost pass for a trick 70s machine. Kudos to the Cannibal, or whoever put this one into production...it is steel, right? Lovely tiny lugs, curved fork blades with a pretty sloping crown. If this were my size, I'd buy it myself.
