Burlingame Bikes Visits Eddy Merckx Headquarters in Belgium.
We closed the shop for a week just before Thanksgiving to visit the Eddy Merckx headquarters. We have always been big fans of Eddy Merckx bikes. We feature several classic Merckx bikes and six different models of new Eddy Merckx bikes in our shop. We came home from Belgium even more impressed with the design, construction, quality control, and overall performance of the new bikes and the professionalism and forward thinking of the Eddy Merckx staff from the CEO on down.
Here are a few photos from the trip:
The Eddy Merckx showroom and Marc discussing bike design with Eddy Merckx CEO Rob Beset, US National Sales Rep Heather Rizzi and US Director Brad Accettella.
The Gent Six-Day indoor track bike race (world champions Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins were the overall winners) and Eddy Merckx bikes on the podium.
The Eddy Merckx Molteni team car at the Tour of Flanders museum and Marc and Glenn doing what most Belgians (and some Portlanders) do on a Saturday in November, standing in the mud on a cold, windy, rainy day drinking beer while watching Gran Prix cyclocross races.
Burlingame Bikes Delivers Two Eddy Merckx Eddy 70s. Just 70 Eddy Merckx Eddy 70s are being sold worldwide to honor Eddy Merckx’s 70th birthday. Just ten were sold in the U.S. We are proud to be selected to assemble and deliver two of these very special limited edition bikes. Here Marc Vanselow, Burlingame Bikes co-owner, presents the new Eddy 70s and the accompanying Eddy Merckx book.
This very special bike was hand made at Eddy Merckx Cycles in Belgium. The frame is Columbus stainless steel painted in Faema team colors and signed by Eddy Merckx.
Components are Campagnolo Super Record and wheels are Campy Bora Ultra 35s, all with special Eddy 70 logos. Sorry, with only 70 having been produced, these special edition bikes are no longer available.

Eddy Merckx EMX-525. This top of the line Eddy Merckx race bike is available with a wide range of Shimano and Campagnolo component options.
