The Eddy Merckx camp is making a big deal of their alloy road bikes, putting their ride quality and performance on par with carbon fiber frames. As an incentive for you to test ride one and see for yourself, they’re giving away 10 autographed Demarchi cotton cycling jerseys signed by Eddy himself.
The offer is open to U.S. residents only. To enter to win one of the jerseys, just test ride any (or all) of their aluminum bikes before May 4, 2016, and submit a photo of you with the bike online. Their alloy models include the Strasbourg gravel bike, the men’s Blockhaus road bike and the women’s Montreal. So, why push premium alloy? Here’s what they have to say:
Just as Eddy himself never compromised, so we will not accept a sub-par product to hit a defined price point. By choosing for ultra-high quality alloy frames for our Prestige Alloy line instead of affordable carbon, we stick true to our philosophy of only offering top level workmanship. These bikes offer double-pass welds with tubing that has been formed in three stages (no hydroforming) to make a frame worthy of the very best groupsets the market has to offer.
