For sale - beautiful 1988 Eddy Merckx Strada in Magenta/White fade, handmade in Meise, Belgium. (Largely original) spec below. A few age related chips to the paint, and the tires have age related cracking but otherwise superb condition. Was the previous owners second bike and has been hanging in a garage for 10 years unused.

Fit for someone around 5'6 to 5'10 depending on proportions. Desperately wanted it to fit me, but it doesn't.

Hi,

Sorry for the amateur question, but...

I am 5’10”. Realistically do you think that the bike would be too small?

All best wishes.

I'm 5'10 and it's too small for me. But it does depend on proportions. If you have particularly short legs you might be alright.
