Woody's Cyclery is the North Shore's exclusive
The “perfect” geometry.
This is the philosophy that Maurizio Fondriest looks for and finally finds in every one of his bikes.
Maurizio Fondriest was born in Cles (Trento) in the heart of the Val di Non on 15 January 1965. During his 12 seasons as a professional cyclist, he added a good 69 victories to his list of successes on the road. The winner of the World Championships at the young age of 23, he won the world cycling cup in ’91 and ’93, the mythical Milano-San Remo in 1993, and collected countless successes during his career both in traditional championships as well as stages in the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France.
Ever since he started putting his name on the first frames, he realized that every single detail of the bicycle would have to reflect his personality and professionalism. Over the past years, he has registered several patents because he has always believed in R&D, and every new idea that comes to life is a new challenge
The North Shore's exclusive Eddy Merckx Dealer
Woodys is proud to be the North Shore's exclusive Eddy Merckx stocking dealer.
Come take a look at the completely revamped 2015 line!
In the world of cycling, Eddy Merckx is a legend. He is the best cyclist, 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. (see a full list of his most important victories here)
What some people are less aware of, is the fact that Eddy Merckx was a maniac of maintaining his bikes as well. He would often stop in the middle of a race, just to adjust his seat post by a fraction of an inch (and he would still win the race).
People called him "The Cannibal", because he wanted to win every race he entered, leaving nothing, not even the smallest victory, to his competitors.
He was a control freak when it came to his bike and his gear. It must come as no surprise then, that Eddy started building bikes right after his career, over 30 years ago, and he continues to do so today.
