Eddy Merckx Montreal74 Tiagra Women’s Road Bike – 2016
Eddy Merckx Montreal74 Tiagra Women’s Road Bike – 2016. The Eddy Merckx Montreal74 women’s road bike delivers the best of the Merckx brand as it pays homage to one of his most spectacular wins ever. At the 1974 Montreal race, Merckx won the first World Championship to be held in the Americas. The Montreal74 combines an outstanding stiffness-to-weight ratio with great compliance. It all starts with a lightweight (1,150 grams) yet stiff aluminum frame and a carbon fork that weighs in at 360 grams. This premium alloy frame features women’s specific geometry, which complements a woman’s physique for comfort and efficiency. With the Montreal74, material and geometry come together to create a bike that’s extremely versatile, offering both endurance and high-performance for racing, grand fondos and centuries; the Montreal74 is also more than capable as a climber. A Shimano 10-speed drivetrain, with compact crankset, delivers excellent ergonomic comfort, high performance and the legendary Shimano precision and reliability. A pair of Shimano R501 alloy clinchers are wrapped with Continental Ultra Sport II 700×25 mm tires. The build is finished with Italian designed Deda handlebar, stem and seatpost, and a Prologo saddle that mixes comfort and performance to help you get the most out of every ride.
