Eddy Merckx Mourenx 69 Disc Frameset

 

The Eddy Merckx Mourenx 69 Disc is a lightweight, high-performance carbon fibre frameset designed to be built into a road bike which can handle long days on the road. Mourenx 69 refers to Eddy Merckx winning the 17th stage of the 1969 Tour de France. This heroic 214.5km ride from Luchon to Mourenx provides the inspiration for a carbon road bike frameset specially designed for long distances.

With a perfect blend of rider-friendly geometry including a slightly higher head tube and shorter top tube the Mourenx frameset includes a comfortable & compliant carbon layup in the seatstays which has been engineered to flex and keep you feeling fresher for longer while a super-stiff bottom bracket area ensures that all of your pedaling power transfers through to the rear wheel. This disc-brake-specific version of the Mourenx 69 frameset allows you to spec predictable hydraulic braking, taking the Mourenx 69 to another level by providing you with confidence inspiring control even on steep, wet and unpredictable descents.

The versatile Mourenx 69 disc frameset includes thru axles, providing increased stiffness and enhanced steering precision while at the same time eliminating the potential for disc rotor rub; it has clearance for up to 30mm wide road tyres allowing you to run larger, more comfortable tyres at lower pressures freeing you up to explore unpredictable, remote areas with unmade roads.

Bought this bike at the sale price, couldn't pass it up. It's my first foray of road disc, built it up with Ultegra disc, and deda finishing kit, finished off with DT swiss wheels. Just under 8kg. I can say is the geometry is fantastic, previous bike was race geo and this is so comfortable but can still get into a low position to put the hammer down. It's so smooth to ride and just feels solid and planted to the road. Only gripe is the seatpost wedge screw is in an awkward position under the top tube where it meets the seat tube. I can just fit the torque wrench underneath to tighten. Packaging was so so, not Merlins fault, clearly it came from the factory with smaller boxes bouncing around inside, thankfully the frameset was fine. Maybe Merlin could double check the packaging before shipping out.
