Merckx to release EMX-7!

Eddy Merckx is getting ready to launch the EMX-7. There are some specifics that are still industry secrets at this point but we do know that the EMX-7 will be the stiffist, lightest most responsive frame Merckx has created. That's saying a lot considering the amazing line up Merckx has produced over the years. The AMX is still a favorite.

Merckx will use the bike industries best carbon fiber (Toray) to integrate the seat mast into the frame. The bottom bracket is oversized, which makes the EMX-7 frame even better at turning leg power into to speed. Build this bike with Campy Super Record and you will, quite possibly, have the best machine in the industry.

Mary Maroon racing at Nature Valley Grand Prix

As the U.S. professional cycling scene focuses its attention squarely on Minnesota, Wrench Science employee Mary Maroon is tearing it up at the Nature Valley Grand Prix. Mary was one of six female athletes from across the country selected via the Nature Valley Pro Ride competition to compete as part of a composite team at the top pro stage race in the country, and at the end of the first day of racing she is the highest placed rider from the Nature Valley Cycling Team.

Mary has been having a break out season racing for the Touchstone Climbing and Wrench Science with top results against some world class competitors at some premier NCNCA events such as the Merco Road Race, Copperopolis, and the Santa Cruz Classic. So when she got the call to join the Nature Valley Squad and ride this very prestigious National Racing Calendar stage race, nobody around here was surpsied and we were all glad to do our part to help her live this dream.

She will take the start of today's Cannon Falls Road Race sitting in 37th on general classification, 1'09' back from the overall leader. Please join us in wishing her the best of luck and good sensations in the legs as she fights her way through the next four days of hard, fast racing!
