Eddy Merckx – 2012 E Series

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.


2012 Eddy Merckx EMX-5 Frame Kit @ $3800
The EMX-5 is Merckx’s more practical race machine, which a majority of their ProTour riders will use next season. Using Merckx’s traditional carbon composite, the EMX-5 looks similar to the EMX-7. However the EMX-5 uses a different fork, and doesn’t have the integrated seatmast like the EMX-7, instead using a traditional seatpost design. EMX-5 has a slightly different rear triangle design, with a major difference being its symmetrical construction, as opposed to the EMX-7′s asymmetrical design. Most other features carry over here. Same tapered headtube, same BB86 bottom bracket, and same aerofoil tubing shapes. The EMX 5 and 7 share almost the same geometry, with some tweaks being made in the seat tube to compensate for the different construction methods. Both incorporate the classic “Merckx” feel, overseen by Eddie himself, with a longer-than-normal trail and rake measurements, making these bikes legendary.

2012 Eddy Merckx EMX-7 Frame Kit @ $5500
The new EMX-7 is a classic example. It uses advanced carbon fiber technology to produce the strongest, stiffest yet lightest racing bike of them all. When you ride one, you know you have the best. It’s the bike that Tom Boonen and the Quick Step team will be using in year 2011, day in, day out, for every race and training session. It’s the illustration of what Eddy Merckx Cycles does best – namely producing the best engineered and best produced racing cycle on the planet.

    Hi

    Do you all still carry the EMX5 frame for the red/white/carbon colour? The one shown in your builds? I’m interested in building it up with ultegra and carbon wheels (FFWD F6R). How much would it roughly be?

      Hi Mick,

      The EMX-5 Frame Kit is retail @ $3800. To set up the bike with Shimano ultegra, and FFWD F6R wheelset, the full bike is probably going to hit around $7k++. Do visit our hougang store, and discuss further with uncle for more info. 🙂

    Hi I am looking at either the EMX 1 or EMX 3 but is there a difference apart from the carbon used? Is the EMX 1 headtube lower than the EMX 3 as the EMX 3 is advertised as a long distance / gran fondo style bike?

    • jialong84 said

      EMX-3 is a stiffer bike compare to EMX-1 due to the diff grade of carbon material used therefore it’s advertised as a long distance bike. Besides that, the wheelset on the EMX-3 is a FFWD carbon wheelset compare to Fulcrum Racing 5 on EMX-1.

    How much would the EMX 3 with UDI2 and F6R cost in total.?

    • jialong84 said

      For that, you will probably have to custom build one in Singapore. You can pay us a visit here at our hougang outlet, and discuss further with my dad whom is also a road cyclist…
