As with everything that wears the Eddy Merckx signature, the EMX-3/Shimano Ultegra Complete Road Bike - 2011 was built on a race-oriented platform, blending low weight, stiffness, and speed into a complete package.
For the build of the EMX-3, Merckx complemented its BB86 bottom bracket with a full Shimano Ultegra 10-speed group set. The machine includes Shimano's compact 50/34t crankset and an 11-25t cassette. At the cockpit, the build features an aluminum handlebar and stem, with an Eddy Merckx saddle perched atop the carbon-wrapped seatpost. In terms of wheels, the EMX-3 rolls on a pair of Fulcrum Racing 5 clinchers.
