Eddy Merkx

Postby Teisetrotter » Sun Nov 04, 2012 23:48 pm

Bought an EMX-3 in the sale about a month ago and a bargain it was. It is lovely to think I am on a bike he has signed off and although it is not one of the top bikes it is everything I need for the moment ........ well excepting the tyres.

But real reason for this post is that they just sent me a lovely little history book and owners passport. I know the cynics will say it's all marketing but this is well after I spent the money and it is a very lovely little book listing all his victories with some really stunning photos.

Lovely touch and it has made me want to go out and buy his autobiography.

They're a nice looking bike, I fancied one myself. They share a lot of their carbon technology R&D with Pinarello.
