Classic Eddy Merckx
Having a classic ride is awesome.
Classic styling, a nostalgic vibe, maybe the chance to have something that you always wanted but didn’t have the money to buy the first time around.
The problem with classics is that you sometimes miss the modern refinements that make current stuff so nice…
Check out this new (vintage) Eddy Merckx. It’s a 56cm frame (good for a rider between 5’7″ and 5’10″). Made from Columbus SL steel tubing, It rides with a snap and springiness that’s as sweet as you remember. We wanted to give this classic ride all of the modern touches that you are used to having, so you can enjoy the vintage soul without being irritated by the vintage quirks.
So this hot rod has all of the new touches. It has a more upright riding position with a +12 degree stem and a variable-radius handlebar. It has a compact crankset and a Shimano Ultegra 10 speed cassette (so it’s a 34/28 low gear). The shifting has modern precision with integrated brake/shift levers and Ultegra derailleurs. You get to roll around on classic hand-built wheels (Mavic Open Pro rims) that are clad with 28mm Continental tires.
All yours for $1899.
