The Eddy Merckx Milano 72 105 Disc is a great value-for-money carbon fibre ladies road bike that features hydraulic disc brakes and is built ready to meet the demands of long rides in unpredictable weather and difficult conditions.

The Milano 72 takes its name from the hard-fought victory by Eddy Merckx in the 1972 Giro d'Italia. After winning four stages he finished first overall in Milan to reinforce his supremacy as the top tour rider, with Eddy directly influencing the development of the Milano 72 105 you are guaranteed a competitive carbon road bike that has been designed to be comfortable and compliant with a little flex in the seatstays.

The Eddy Merckx Milano 72 includes a Shimano 105 5800 groupset featuring a compact chainset with 50/34T chainrings combined with a wide ratio 11/32T cassette providing a versatile range of gears to help you climb steep hills and stay feeling fresher for longer on epic rides. With specially selected components such as a comfortable women-specific Prologo Kappa Space STN saddle and Deda stem, bars and seatpost Merckx have ensured that all contact points remain comfortable even during your longer rides.
