Eddy Merckx San Remo 76 Ultegra Disc Road Bike - 2017
The Eddy Merckx San Remo 76 Ultegra 6800 disc road bike is a high-performance modern carbon road bike capable of racing in the most demanding events out there; with a stiff, uniquely-profiled carbon frame and predictable, confidence inspiring hydraulic disc brakes this cutting edge road bike will take your riding to the next level whether you want to improve your performance at your local weekly crit or just want to enjoy your hilly social rides more at the weekends.
Eddy Merckx took part in the classic Milan-San Remo race 10 times, winning it seven times, with his last participation in 1976. Milan-San Remo or ‘La Primavera’ is recognised as a sprinters' classic; the San Remo 76 Ultegra 6800 disc road bike takes its name from this demanding event – being a high-performance sprinter's racing bike where the aerodynamics, stiffness and power transfer of the frame are crucial in enhancing your results.
The Eddy Merckx San Remo 76 carbon frame features some uniquely profiled semi-aero tube profiles and includes a large bottom bracket area combined with oversized chainstays to give a super-stiff, responsive feel when you’re putting down the power. With internal cables and an aero profiled seat tube the San Remo 76 will cut through the air efficiently and help you hold your speed for longer. One of the key features of this bike is of course the brilliant Shimano BR-RS805 hydraulic brakes; taking braking on road bikes to a whole new level the hydraulic levers and calipers provide safe, predictable braking in all conditions and allow you to modulate the amount of braking force you apply. A capable, precise shifting Shimano Ultegra groupset and durable but lightweight DT Swiss R32 Spline wheelset completes this competitively priced, high-performance disc road bike.
