If you were a world famous cyclists, how would you celebrate your 65th birthday? Eddy Merckx will launch a 2011 EMX-7 Anniversary road bike in celebration of his birthday and 525 victories.
The 2011 Eddy Merckx EMX-7 Anniversary features Merckx’s major wins on special lightweight carbon fiber wheels. This EMX-7 has Xs weaved throughout the frame, internal cable routing, among many more features, making It unlike any other released.
Building the 2011 Eddy Merckx EMX-7 Anniversary Bike was accomplished with three factors in mind. First, the company concentrated on the stiffness in the headtube. From there, designers turned their attentions to the shaping. Lastly, they focused on its aerodynamics.
We were told only 200 will release, and at the time 50 were already sold. What is jaw dropping is the retail price, which comes in at a whopping $21,000! Rumor has it actor/comedian Robin Williams is after the exact one displayed at InterBike. Limited quantities will be available in November.
