The Eddy Merckx Sallanches 64 with Ultegra Di2 and Hydro Disc Brakes is a whole lot of bike for the money. It tops our list for affordable dream bike, unfortunately, there is very limited availability on these. We happen to have a size medium and size large in stock and ready to make your next ride incredible.
The Sallanches 64 features gran fondo geometry; meaning ready to race, but relaxed enough for 200km rides. The frame is stiff, light, responsive, and very smooth. It even has clearance for a 30mm tire for more comfort and control. We stock the Sallanches 64 in 105, Ultegra, and Di2 because of their ride quality and the fact that Merckx specs all of their bikes with FULL groups. This baby comes with a full Di2 drive train and Shimano hyrdo flat mount disc brakes. At just 16.5 pounds in a size medium, this is a true dream bike below $5000.
A great frame, full of nice touches and the best drive train and brakes made.
Compact gearing gets you any where you want to go.
12mm thru axles make owning disc brakes easy.
Most bikes don't have the clean lines of the Sallanches 64.
It's all in the details.
