Details

Eddy Merckx set the tone for the 1971 Tour de France when he narrowly out-sprinted Roger De Vlaeminck on a gravel track. As a testament to this historic win, Eddy Merckx created the Strasbourg 71, a racing bike designed specifically for gravel roads and off-road adventures. The sprightly alloy frame is more than happy cruising a paved highway, but the sturdy construction and clearance for up to 40mm tires makes it truly at home on endless rolling gravel roads. Lightweight DT Swiss Spline wheels wrapped in Clement USH tires have a split personality: able to handle whatever rough road you seek out while remaining a nimble and fast-rolling on race day. Shimano outfitted this beast with a smooth-shifting Ultegra drivetrain, along with hydraulic disc brakes to give you unmatched control in all conditions. A plush Prologo saddle keeps you comfortable mile after bumpy mile, while the aluminum Deda cockpit keeps the aesthetics tight and weight low.
