Eddy Merckx EMX3 Road Bike - Centaur Compact 2010

While it seems common sense that improving the comfort and minimising the vibrations reduces energy loss when riding over bumps, there is science to prove it! Riding over most bumpy surfaces will not generate a single frequency of vertical seat movement, but instead provoke a spectrum of vibration frequencies with perhaps distinct peaks at a few different frequencies. Despite the fact that carbon fiber is much stiffer than metals, the actual build-up of the material can deliver a very comfortable ride (i.e. Carbon Laminate ). While materials are one aspect, bike geometry does make a considerable difference and this is where Eddy Merckx EMX series bikes have their added advantage.

Carbon fiber bikes are made using sheets of carbon fiber, and these are built up in layers one on top of the other. The carbon laminate and process, developed by and for Eddy Merckx cycles, assemble the sheets together in ways that maximise the strength and rigidity of the resulting frame. The result? optimized performance, comfort and weight.

Answer: 
Considerando le misure che ci ha fornito é probabile che la taglia 44cm si sia piccola. Tuttavia teniamoa specificare che si tratta di un consiglio indicativo. La cosa migliore sarebbe prvare la stessa taglia in un negozio locale e paragonarla con la geometria della bici.
