The Eddy Merckx Roubaix 70 is a classic looking steel frameset that builds up into a beautiful ‘vintage-look’ road bike with all the benefits of modern-day frame construction and technology. Inspired by the great Eddy Merckx himself the Roubaix 70 steel frameset forms part of the Merckx Heritage line of bikes and frames and takes its name from the 1970 Paris-Roubaix classic, a race commonly referred to as the ‘Hell of the North’. The 1970 edition saw terrible weather influence the race but nonetheless Eddy still rode to victory more than six minutes ahead of his nearest rival.
This high-performance frameset is made from quality Columbus Zona steel and features a monocoque composite fork to enhance comfort on your ride. Fans of steel road bikes already recognise the benefits of this classic frame material and construction technique, namely durability, compliance and a unique ride quality not found in carbon or aluminium road bikes. Inspired by the stylish Faema team colors, the Roubaix 70 steel frameset not only looks great but proves that combining high-quality Columbus steel and a modern carbon fork provides a unique cycling experience.
