The Eddy Merckx Sallanches 64 105 is a lightweight carbon fibre road bike equipped with powerful flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes. Designed to be a versatile machine that can deliver in high-performance racing and longer endurance events, allowing you to go further and faster than you have done previously and helping you enjoy your road cycling more than ever before. In 1964, Eddy Merckx became the amateur world champion in Sallanches, France; this marked the start of his extraordinarily successful career as a cyclist with this bike taking its name from that victory.
The Sallanches 64 combines rider-friendly geometry - a slightly higher head tube and shorter top tube, with a cleverly constructed carbon frame which includes a more flexible flattened profile in the seatstays providing enhanced comfort when seated. These compliant elements contrast with a super-stiff bottom bracket and chainstay area ensuring that all of your energy and pedaling power transfers through to the rear wheel.
The Eddy Merckx Sallanches 64 includes a rider-friendly Shimano 105 groupset featuring a compact chainset combined with a wide ratio rear cassette providing a versatile range of gears that will help you conquer the steepest climbs you can find. Shimano BR-RS505 hydraulic disc brakes allow you to control your bike in more confidence with consistent, predictable braking regardless of weather and road conditions. A notably comfortable Charge Spoon saddle and Deda components means your contact points remain comfortable even during a six-hour epic and a durable, but lightweight pair of Fulcrum Racing 600 disc-brake specific wheels with centre-lock hubs complete this capable package.
