More on Eddy Merckx.
The 2019 Tour de France began with two stages in Belgium to honor the 50th Anniversary of Eddy Merckx’s first of five Tour victories. The AG2R La Mondiale team rides Eddy Merckx bikes, including the new StockEU on the Pro Tour.
It’s always exciting to see a brand new model bike for the first time. Here is Glenn unpacking a 2109 Eddy Merckx 525 in Molteni orange. We are proud to have sold the first two 2019 525s in the US.
The 525 is gorgeous! Here are a few shots from our shop. This 525 is equipped with Ultegra Di2, Selle Italia SLR saddle, Fulcrum Racing Quattro carbon wheels and Vittoria Corsa tires.
Burlingame Bikes Visits Eddy Merckx Headquarters in Belgium.
We closed the shop for a week just before Thanksgiving in 2016 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.
