Eddy Merckx EMX-7 Frame 56cm Kit 2011
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 used this during the 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.
2011 Eddy Merckx EMX-5 Frame Kit
The EMX-5 is Merckx’s more practical race machine. 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 for their descending speed and handling.
