We received news this morning that Eddy Merckx has re-launched the brand, including steel and titanium bikes amongst the flashy carbon fiber racing machines…
This Molteni Pévèle (48 mm tire clearance – €2,149.00 for a 2x Tiagra build) is an homage to Eddy’s three times winning Paris-Roubaix, reimagining and modernizing the bikes Eddy raced in the early 1970s, starting with the frame material. Steel is not only more budget-friendly than carbon; it is durable, stiff, and yet comfortable. Perfect for an all-road bike.
The classic steel frame is an ode to the glorious past of Eddy Merckx bicycles. The team bikes from 7 Eleven, Telekom, Motorola and last but not least the classic Merckx – Molteni bike, these bikes left an indelible impression on many bicycle enthusiasts. But make no mistake, these are not retro bikes; they are steel bicycles with a subtle nod to the past.
There is also the Corsa model, available in Titanium. Each frame is welded by hand in Belgium.
