Mer­ckx Sal­lanches 64

Pedal Magazine - - Buyers Guide 2018 -

Sal­lanches is the name of the French town in which Eddy Mer­ckx won the 1964 Ama­teur World Cham­pi­onships, hence the name of this Mer­ckx Endurance model. The Sal­lanches 64 has a com­fort­able ride due to its re­laxed ge­om­e­try and wide wheel­base, yet han­dling is un­af­fected, as it still has an ag­ile feel. Mer­ckx stocks this frame with Shi­mano’s reliable Ul­te­gra groupset and sturdy alu­minum RS010 wheels. Deda pro­vides the cock­pit with an er­gonom­i­cally shaped alu­minum han­dle­bar. The SRP is $4,330.
