Eddy Merckx Milano72 Tiagra Women’s Road Bike- 2016. The Women’s specific Milano72 is named for Merckx’s 1972 Giro d’Italia victory in which he won four stages and solidified his position as the preeminent grand tour rider of the day. For those who love to climb, the Milano72 makes an ideal climber. And because it has women’s specific geometry, the Milano72 complements a woman’s physique for comfort and efficiency. The Milano72 has a lightweight (990 grams) yet stiff carbon monocoque front triangle frame, with a carbon monocoque fork (360 grams). The frame’s beautifully balanced combination of stiffness and compliance makes for an extremely versatile platform. Whether your focus is endurance or high-performance, you’ll find the Milano72 a capable performer. A Shimano Tiagra 10-speed drivetrain and compact crankset (50-34T) deliver excellent ergonomic comfort, high performance and the celebrated Shimano precision and reliability. The Shimano R501 alloy clincher wheelset is wrapped with Continental Ultra Sport II 700x 25 mm tires. Finally, finishing hardware includes Italian designed Deda RHM01 handlebars, and Deda Zero stem and seatpost. A comfortable Prologo Kappa Dea STN saddle provides support for tackling tough climbs or those long tempo rides.
