GO FOR IMPRESSIVE SPEED
Eddy Merckx took part in the Milan-San Remo race 10 times, winning it seven times, with the last being in 1976. Another unique record. La Primavera is recognized as a sprinters’ classic, which is what links it to the speedy San Remo 76.
The San Remo 76 is a true high-performance sprinter’s racing bike where the aerodynamics, stiffness and power transfer are crucial in achieving the ultimate sporting ride experience.
It is the race oriented counterpart to the Mourenx 69.

Eddy Merckx Cycles has become synonymous for premium quality manufacturing. Each model in the collection is fitted with a complete groupset from one of the world’s leading and most trusted manufacturers. And to guarantee that these standards are kept high, they never mix components of different brands. The key elements in their philosophy are: go for excellence and never make compromises on quality. As a result, they feel confident in offering a Strict Lifetime Warranty for every frame in the collection.
CONSTANT STEERING STIFFNESS
How do you prevent loss of stiffness with large frame sizes?
Constant Steering Stiffness is not only a requirement for every frame, but also for every size of frame. What good is opting for an ultra-stiff frame if the forks do not provide the same stiffness? That is why at Eddy Merckx Cycles they also adjust the tapering of the forks to match the size. This is, of course, important for the larger sizes to avoid the stiffness value reducing as the size of the frame increases.
As part of the No Compromises philosophy, every carbon frame and fork produced by EMC is CT scanned. Twice.
CT scans (Computed Tomography, using X-ray technology) of the forks AND frames both carried out during both the R&D (Research & Development) and QC (Quality Control) phases. As a result, riders can have complete confidence as they push themselves to the limit on their Eddy Merckx racing bikes.
MAXIMUM POWER OUTPUT
How can you make sure that the power that a racer puts into a frame is converted into a faster forwards movement?
Eddy Merckx Cycles ensure ultimate power transfer by using stiff frames in combination with power sections at specific points of the frame. All Merckx frames (both carbon and aluminum) are also shaped asymmetrically. The seat tube and chain stays are attached to both sides of the frame in a way that provides maximum power output and therefore maximum speed.
