Eddy Merckx Strasbourg 71 Rival Alloy Gravel Bike - 2017
During the 1971 Tour de France, Eddy Merckx won the first stage in Strasbourg and then a few weeks later rode into Paris on 18 July wearing the yellow jersey. The stage to Strasbourg ended on a gravel track where Merckx narrowly beat Roger De Vlaeminck in a sprint.
The Strasbourg 71 is therefore the ideal racing bike for off-road adventures. With this aluminum gravel bike you can ride not only on the road, but also on rougher paths. A multi-faceted racing bike that can take a few knocks, meaning that you can also use it as a commuter racing bike to travel to work.
