2012 Eddy Merckx AMX-3 105 Complete Bike @ $1650
The A-series alloy frames have a higher strength to weight index than steel, but that is no reason to use it in excess. Eddy Merckx’s triple butted tubing allows them to reduce aluminum in places where it was unnecessary, and smooth welding means there are literally no joints to be seen.

Eddy Merckx Cycles have years of experience in the development of aluminium frames. The many victories won using aluminium Eddy Merckx bicycles during equipment-intensive competitions – such as the Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders – are the best evidence of their success in doing so. Their collection has no fewer than 3 different alloys, and its profile is both racy, and ergonomically optimal.

2012 Eddy Merckx EFX-1 105 Complete Bike @ $2500
The superb handling is the most pronounced ride characteristic of the EFX-1. It is both comfortable and stiff, but its real strength is the feeling of confidence it inspires around corners and how true it seems to ride in a group. A full carbon fork softens the ride and keeps the whole package light, while retaining the racing inspired aero fork shaping. The EFX-1 also uses the increasingly popular tapering steertube, which goes from the standard 1 1/8″ up to 1 1/4″ to improve front end stiffness. The beefy carbon seatstay should provide plenty of riding comfort. Merckx stressed the comfort and rideability of both the EFX-1 and the EFX-3, thanks to features like this.

2012 Eddy Merckx EMX-3 Ultegra Complete Bike @ $4400
Long-distance recreational riders haven’t been ignored either, with the slightly more upright EMX-3 gaining a tapered 1-1/8 to 1-1/4 in front end and all-new carbon fork, plus revised front triangle tube shapes will give it a slightly more relaxed geometry designed for comfort. Merckx is billing the EMX-3 as more of a “Gran Fondo” ride, with a little more give, and geometry designed for hours of comfort in the saddle. While shooting for comfort though, Merckx didn’t sacrifice performance. The EMX-3 keeps good power transfer by adding stiffness where needed, like the bottom bracket and front end. A good fit for riders looking for comfort and performance, the EMX-3 fits perfectly into the Merckx as their intermediate level carbon road bike.

  • Stiffness To Weight: 115 Nm/°/kg
  • Frame: Carbon CL+ 300 – 3K
  • Fork: Carbon fork – UDM, tapered 1 1/8” – 1 1/4”
