Eddy Merckx Milano 72 Ultegra Di2 Disc Ladies Road Bike - 2017
The Eddy Merckx Milano 72 Ultegra Di2 Disc is the ultimate carbon fibre ladies road bike, built for those of you looking for a lightweight, fast and user-friendly bike that won’t be adversely affected by difficult wet and unpredictable weather. With hydraulic brakes and electronic gear transmission there are no traditional cables on this bike to pick up grit and grime from wet roads meaning that braking remains consistent and predictable while each gear shift is guaranteed to be crisp and precise regardless of conditions. With compact gearing the Milano 72 is ready to meet the demands of long hilly rides while the lightweight Merckx carbon frame featuring women-specific geometry will keep you comfortable on those epic all-day rides.
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 Ultegra Di2 Disc you are guaranteed a competitive carbon road bike that has been designed to be comfortable and compliant with a little flex engineered into the seatstays. The addition of predictable Shimano BR-RS805 hydraulic disc brakes will provide you with confidence inspiring control even when braking on steep, unpredictable wet roads.
The Shimano Ultegra Di2 groupset features a compact chainset with 50/34T chainrings combined with a wide ratio 11/32T cassette providing a versatile range of gears able to cope with the steepest of hills. The Milano 72 Ultegra Di2 disc road bike features thru axles for increased stiffness, enhanced steering and no disc rotor rub as well as a pair of lightweight but durable Fulcrum Racing Sport disc specific wheels. To complete the Milano 72 ladies road bike Merckx have selected components such as a comfortable women-specific Prologo Kappa Space STN saddle and Deda stem, bars and seatpost encouraging you to ride further and for longer than you ever have before.
