Eddy Merckx Strasbourg 71 Disc Force 1 Gravel Bike – 2019

During the 1971 Tour de France, Eddy Merckx not only victoriously rode into Paris donning the yellow jersey, but won the difficult first stage in Strasbourg as well. The stage into town ended on a gravel track where Merckx narrowly beat Roger De Vlaeminck in a sprint. The Strasbourg71 gravel race bike is an ode to this stage win where Eddy confirmed his sprinting prowess on extremely challenging terrain.

The Strasbourg 71 frame consists of impact-resistant material below the downtube, as well as behind the seat tube, where you can have a lot of stone impact during a gravel ride. On top of that Merckx offer an integrated chain catcher to protect your pedal stroke on rough terrain. The wide clearance of the front and rear fork allows 40mm tyres. This bike can be equipped with mudguards and travel bags for real adventure. To perfectly accommodate those travel-bags your bottle cage can be put in different positions.
Thanks to the road geometry transforming your bike for a spin on the pavement can be done easily. Just change your tyres and hop on your bike.

Marc Batlló Awesome bike, confortable, and fast. Absolutely beast!
Vincent Excellent value - Surprisingly high level components (groupset, wheels, saddle...) at this price point. As all Belgian Factory bikes, the EM sizes quite large - I'm 183, and the M fits me perfectly. The color scheme is something different, refreshing.
