RIDE #56 Round Table – Merckx EMX-1


An entry-level bike ($2,999) with a revered cycling name emblazoned on the tubes. The Merckx is a budget bike that rides with class – the results back up the pedigree. The tall head tube on this frame contributed to the impressive stability that was reported by riders and the Shimano 105 groupset performed admirably, impressing the RIDE Team.

Comments come from Shane Lovejoy, Alex Malone, Toby Shingleton, Greg Chalberg and Rob Arnold.
