The Eddy Merckx 525 sits the summit of agility, aerodynamics and comfort while retaining a low weight. It's the chosen bike for Oliver Naesen when he's racing rough terrains across cobbles and for battling the wind during the hardest Classics. Also, it is favoured by Romain Bardet for the longest and hardest race days during Grand Tours and Spring Classic events.
In the world of cycling, Eddy Merckx is a legend. He is the best cyclist ever; having won 5 Tours de France, 5 Giro d'Italias, 3 World Championships, 7 Milan-San Remos, and having beaten the World Hour Record, to name a few of his victories. In all, he won 525 races, an all time record. And that is why they called him The Cannibal.Eddy Merckx was and still is a maniac of maintaining his bikes. He would often stop in the middle of a race, just to adjust his seatpost by a fraction of an inch (and he would still win the race).

Getting the Right Fit
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts for our customers. Our qualified team of mechanics then individually check each order, against measurements supplied by you, to ensure the size chosen is correct. Another reason you can have complete confidence when buying a bike from Wiggle!
If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.
