Description

2010 Eddy Merckx EMX-1 51cm. 51cm With a Stack of 58.9cm frame that will fit 5’10″-6’0″. This bike rides great and handles like a race bike with the gear range to go fast. You will have a big smile after each ride.

Industry Description:
The bike is the Eddy Merckx EMX-1. It is named after Eddy Merckx-cycling’s own GOAT (Greatest Of All Time). Done.
Merckx designs bikes in two geometries for two purposes: the pro for racers, and the performance (seen here) for long days in the saddle. Compared to the pro, the performance geometry gains 19mm in head-tube height (193mm on our 51cm ride/effectively 57.7cm), and a shorter wheelbase (99.8cm) and reach(37cm). This gives a slightly more relaxed, upright position than the flat-backed stance on the pro. Don’t be fooled into thinking the EMX-1 is a cruiser though – there’s plenty that makes it a high performer.
With its nearly full coat of paint (which we welcome) covering the high modulus carbon monocoque frame, the EMX-1 sports a clear coat over the unidirectional carbon weave to enhance its design. While the frame is pretty standard fare at first glance, a closer inspection reveals subtle shaping throughout. The tapered headtube runs with internal headsets, and the fork and seatstays share a severe aero profile.
As we didn’t finish road testing the Merckx until late into the 2010 season, we made sure to find out what will be different on the 2011 version. Most notably, you can expect to find Shimano’s new 105 gruppo, complete with internally routed (under the bar tape) cables. The consistent, smooth and light action of the 105 drivetrain is perfectly suited for a bike in this price range.
The other piece of the Shimano pie that had us licking our chops was the RS20 wheelset. After months of enduring the inconsistent braking performance of so many carbon wheels, the straightforward aluminum hoops brought a big sigh of relief. The 24mmdeep wheels run bladed spokes (16f/20r) with red nipples for a dash of style. Like most aluminum wheels, they stopped on a dime. As for hard parts, you’ll find a run-ofthe- mill, house-brand aluminum stem and handlebar and a carbon-wrapped, aluminum seatpost. We liked the 350mm  seatpost; it guarantees plenty of adjustment to accommodate the sloping top tube, and we would prefer the nicely polished seatpost to the senseless carbon fa‡ade.

A little about the seller:

I’ve been in the cycling industry for more than 30 years (I know, that makes me old!). I’ve been a professional bicycle mechanic for most of those years, including working locally at Lee’s Cyclery before they became Trek Stores. Now I work from home as a Customer Success Manager for a software team. But I still love fixing up and working on bikes, and riding them too!

Purchase from me with peace of mind. Not only can you trust my years of experience, but I will also fit you for the bike and provide any mechanical insight at the time of purchase. No warranties or refunds, provided. The bikes are sold as-is but It includes follow-up minor adjustments and fitting if needed within the first 30 days as well.


Shipping information:

I ship UPS Ground and the bike is disassembled. I do have a video to help in putting back together.  Usually, it’s the Bars, Front Wheel, Pedals, and Seatpost that need to be put back on. I try to keep it simple. It will be packed very well, but if you see any damage to the box or bike keep the box and packing material plus, take pictures. I do insure all bikes that are shipped and require a signature. In addition, if shipped out of Colorado, there is no Sales Tax.
