A Very Special Offer to Celebrate our 45th Anniversary

To celebrate our 45th year anniversary, we have a limited offer – 10 units of Eddy Merckx bikes where you can get them at the most valuable price – Eddy Merckx full carbon bike with Shimano ultegra groupset, and Fulcrum wheelset at less than $3k now! Make sure you don’t miss an awesome deal like this, and grab yours while stocks last!

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.

  • Stiffness To Weight: 90 Nm/°/kg
  • Frame: EMS 7000 series triple butted
  • Fork: Carbon fork – UDM, tapered 1 1/8” – 1 1/4”
  • Groupset: Shimano 105 compact
  • Stem: FSA OS-150
  • Handlebar: FSA omega compact
  • Seatpost: FSA SP-SL-270
  • Saddle: Prologo kappa STN
  • Wheelset: Fulcrum Racing 7
  • Tyres: Vittoria zaffiro pro

  • Colour: Black / White

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.

  • Stiffness To Weight: 105 Nm/°/kg
  • Frame: Carbon CL+ 240 – UDM
  • Fork: Carbon fork – UDM, tapered 1 1/8” – 1 1/4”

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”

New EMX-525 gets Great Reviews

Eddy Merckx’s brand new, top of the line EMX-525 has gotten some first reviews. Road.cc states the bike doesn’t disappoint: “It’s clear it’s a very stiff and very, very fine handling frame and fork that will satisfy riders wanting a fast and responsive bike. Could it be the ultimate race bike? It’s certainly vying for that crown, make no mistake.”

The first impression of Road.cc is that of a very stiff bike that’s great to handle. “So it looks like it will be explosive and on the first climb of our test loop this is the right word to describe the ride sensation. It surges forward with real authority. Press hard on the pedals and the frame feels solid. Throw the bike through corners and the front end stiffness gives an incredibly accurate steering response, it’s precise and very very accurate.”

“I came away impressed”, Road.cc writes. “Merckx have clearly delivered on their quest to produce an outstandingly stiff bike. I came away from my short ride on the Merckx impressed. They’ve clearly raised the bar, it’s one of the best handling bikes I’ve ridden in some time.”
