EDDY MERCKX ‘EMX 1′ Men’s “Custom Built” Carbon Road Bike

Carbon Frame

51` Frame  (Large)

Suit Size 5’9 / 6`0  – ( Eddy Merckx Size guide / chart )

#N.B. Please note:  Eddy Merckx bikes do NOT measure their bike frames conventionally. They use the seat tube measurement from centre to centre. Therefore the size of the frames comes across as being very small. Hence this model in a 51′ is more like a 56′ or 58’ when compared to other manufacturers such as Trek, Giant or Specialized.

 

EDDY MERCKX are a highly desirable brand made famous by the heritage associated with their owner. They have a reputation for making amazing framesets and over the years have become known to be the makers of extremely good race bikes.

The company is based in Belgium but are not widely available in the UK. They have sponsored a number of pro cyclists and have even had their own team.

This particular bike has been custom built from the frame by our in-house Cytech 3 mechanic with a very desirable spec that we chose ourselves. Using a Shimano 105 groupset we have then married the bike with a full set of FSA components. To compliment this we have fitted Shimano’s RS 30 wheels and brand new Vredestein tyres. A new Selle Italia saddle and bar tape complete the build.

The parts for this bike have been individually sourced for their quality as well as their suitability for the build. Because of bikes pedigree we have spec’d the bike with a good level of finishing kit, whilst no overbuilding it. The result of which gives the bike has a great overall feel.

We are exceptionally pleased with the outcome. Having ridden the bike myself I can vouch for it’s instant speed and acceleration due in part to its light weight. You instantly know that you are riding something special when it manages to offer great comfort too. The bike feels expensive and certainly responds and rides like a top quality product. It rides very light and for its size feels very nimble.

The bike simply looks great in it’s black, white and blue livery. We have matched the upgrades on the bike to colour co-ordinate the build.

The spec is as follows:

Carbon Frame
Carbon Fibre Forks

Custom Build:
Shimano 105 20 speed STI shifters
Shimano 105 Front Mech
Shimano 105 Rear Mech

Shimano 105 double compact Chainset

Shimano 105 Brake calipers

Shimano RS 30 Factory Wheels

Brand new / Selle Italia XR Saddle
FSA SL 280 handlebars / matching seatpost & stem

Brand new / Vredestein Duo Formula 25′ tyres

Brand new / Selle Italia bar tape

 

The bike is in very good condition as are the wheels with some of the components in exceptional ‘as new’ condition. The saddle and bar tape are brand new. Apart from a few blemishes here and there you would find it difficult to fault the overall quality of the bike.

Overall this is an amazing bike, with incredible pedigree that offers fabulous value for money.

The bike is ready to ride.
