Eddy Merckx Eeklo Cyclocross Bike - SRAM Rival 11SP at Merlin Cycles for £749
Posted 18th Aug

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Very decent entry level bike for commuting or a bit of road and gravel riding. A really great all rounder with the very competent SRAM Rival 11SP groupset, carbon fork, decent saddle as standard, clearance for up to 36mm tyres and a nice wide range 11-36 cassette. Might want to upgrade the brakes in the future, but that's a cheap fix.

Only available in large, but should be perfect for a wide range of riders. Would buy one myself in a heartbeat if it were an XL. However, if you're 5'9" - 6'2" it should be perfect for you.

Shout out to Claire at Bike Bargains for spotting this one!

Entry level at £749 wow!
mmm, all 3 reviews seem to say great value, guessing it had been at discount for w while as this is not a £2k bike in my opinion
Great find for a very good bike! Is 2k really the next best price for it??

Actually entry level at £1,999. Great discount and Merckx frames are historically a class apart from mass produced rubbish. You can spend a bit more and get a custom frame made to your own measurements if you wish.
What is Bike Bargains? Is it a forum or page for deals?
On the look out for a decent MTB
This bike isn't a bad price in the current situation of inflated prices, but it's a 1k/1.1k bike IMO.
This has been this price for about 2 years .
Ok for £749, but nothing special. How do they get this to £2k? Cheap wheels, ok groupset, everything else is average. Is the frame that good?
How can this be a cyclocross with rim brakes?
Engine included?
Price is about right but would be great if it had disc brakes
Don't forget to add £19.99 postage unless you live close enough to Chorley to collect.
If you're in the market for a CX want discs at a similar price with sram apex there is this for £699 from planet x. Better range of sizes too.

That's a good deal. Bikes have gone up in price and Planet X are offering that bike at roughly pre covid price. I've bought one myself last year. Great bike.

Can someone who knows their bikes confirm because to my untrained eye it does seem like better parts for money (+ overall cheaper)

Too slow. 10 whole minutes to post a 'how much?/you can buy a car for that/my bike cost £0.17p/does it have an engine?(delete as applicable)' comment is never going to win you pointless poster of the year.

Fair price but not earth shattering. Quite a few decent deals at Merlin if you can get your size. Lots of XS,S, Med deals.
How on earth was that ever listed for £2k????

The Planet X bike advertised at this price is a better deal over all, sorry OP. Both use the same or incredibly similar wheelset as well, where do they think they've spent the money to justify that price?

Started eyeing that planetx bike and its a great spec, not for me however as it doesnt have rack mounts (for adding pannier bags) so couldnt use it for commuting or bike trekking.

How can this be a cyclocross with rim brakes?


Many cx bikes use canti brakes

Suppose so. But I wouldn’t use them in muddy wet conditions on an autumn cyclocross route. Lethal
