The time has come to part with my gorgeous pro team spec my Eddy Merckx EMX 525 road bike. The frame is the top of the range Eddy Merckx and is so called the 525 to celebrate Eddy's 525 professional career victories, and carries his signature on the seat tube. It is size 52cm with a 110mm stem and 40 inch wide bars and is immaculate condition. I have only ridden it a few hundred miles (odd tiny mark here and there really does gleam as new though!) and it truly is stunning. It has been described as the best balanced bike in the world and it rides like a dream.
The bars and stem are 3T's ergonovas, very comfortable on the tops. The bike also has Zipp carbon headset spacers and an FSA carbon top cap. I even specced anodised red bottle cage bolts ;).
The bike is the current year model in the best colour in my opinion of matte black and white. It has a full Ultegra Di2 groupset (compact), with Fulcrum Quattro racing wheels and a KMC gold chain. The bike also has a Fizik Arione saddle which is mega comfy and light.
I am only selling the bike as I need the funds as I am buying a house so ill be on the winter bike for the foreseeable future… otherwise I would be keeping this bike forever!

As I stated the bike is a 52cm, I am 5ft 7 with a 30 inch inside leg, the saddle has lots of length left and you can of course change the stem if you are taller or shorter. Here is the geometry from the website if you are unsure;

Should you have any queries please message me, or call me on 0773853169.
The whole build set me back £4600, so you will be making a huge saving on what is essentially an as new pro level bike, oh and finally when I built the bike you couldn’t buy it in this colour, only the red and white - I much preferred the matte black and white hence why I built it from scratch.
I will only accept collection given the high value of this beautiful machine, it can be collected in Leeds or Huntingdon near Peterborough.
Thanks for reading
