The Eddy Merckx Blockhaus 67 road bike is made from super-light (1,150 grams) aluminium and is matched with a light, compliant carbon fork weighing only 360 grams. Eddy Merckx Cycles has a rich history as an aluminum frame builder and recognises the benefits of a simple, lightweight modern alloy frame. With aluminium enjoying somewhat of a resurgence over the last few seasons thanks to its stiff, responsive properties and more affordable pricing the Blockhaus reinforces this trend with a really competitive bike at a great price. The Blockhaus 67 truly combines outstanding stiffness-to-weight values with great comfort and compliance thanks to its carbon fork and rider-friendly geometry. Perfect for longer, hilly rides it makes a capable lightweight climber that also stands up to hard knocks at your local crit race.

Eddy Merckx is widely regarded as the greatest ever road cyclist, winner of 11 Grand Tours (5 Tour de France victories, 5 Giro d'Italia and 1 Vuelta), all five Monuments, breaking the Hour record, World Championships and countless other achievements. Nicknamed The Cannibal due to his ruthless racing style, after retiring from professional cycling Eddy founded his Belgian bike company in March 1980. Inspired by Ugo De Rosa (of De Rosa fame) Merckx setup his first factory in Meise, and due to the popularity of the brand later moved to Zellik. The brand has a strong tradition of employing former riders, such as Jos Huysmans, Edouard Janssens, and Bob Lelangue, which lends further credibility to the brand as well as providing valuable employment after cycling. Initially bikes were constructed from steel, but this was later surpassed by aluminium as material of choice. After a brief dabble in titanium, a large proportion of Merckx bikes are now constructed from carbon due to it's high strength and low weight properties. In 2008 Eddy retired as CEO, but still provides input as a consultant to the engineers. Famous riders that have competed on Merckx bikes include Erik Zabel, Robbie McEwen, Tom Boonen, Frankie Andreu, Lance Armstrong and George Hincapie - if the bikes are good enough for Eddy and riders of that calibre, then you can guarantee they won't let you down.
