  • Manufacturer: Eddy Merckx
  • Size: 55 cm
  • Description:
    Eddy Merckx steel bicycles made themselves a name for being some of the best handling and fastest racing machines available.
    It always was Eddy's idea that a bike should not be light for lightness sake. Less weight should help you to climb up hills, but when stability is sacrificed, most of the rider's power is sacrificed in the movements of the frame. And descending becomes a nerve-wrecking adventure where you simply are not as fast as a competitor who knows that his slightly hevier but stronger bike is riding as stable as on rails.

    Consequently Merckx was trying to build averagely light bikes which were far stronger than average.
    He succeeded by using specially drawn oversized tubing which, combined with a superior geometry, came out as some of the finest road bike frames of the 1990s: The MX-Leader, the Corsa 01 or the Arcobaleno.
    One of those tubesets were the customized Columbus Neuron tubes which were used for the Arcobaleno model (named after the rainbow jersey).
    The Eddy Merckx Arcobaleno was made of these ovalized Neuron tubes which, especially in later versions, were connected using fillet brazing and bi-laminating techniques.
    The smooth joints together with a hidden seat post clamping gave the bike a terifically elegant look.
    On the technical side it knew how to convince, too: The pro team GAN was famously riding Arcobaleno frames for some time.

    We are happy to be able to present to you one of the late and extra smooth models. On top, our Arcobelano is in excellent condition, shows an art-deco style paintjob and is equipped with a full Campagnolo groupset.

    The sheer quality of the frame and the setup make our Eddy Merckx a perfect companion for sportive riding and commuting alike.

    An impressive road bike with many many years of live left in it. »See Details
