Mekk BicyclesMekk Poggio SE 0.5 Road Bike. If you have serious aspirations in the realm of road cycling, the 2016 edition Mekk Poggio SE 0.5 provides all the tools necessary for high performance: a full carbon fra ... moreme and fork complemented by Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components. At its core is a UD carbon frame that's stiff, lightweight, and features classic road geometry. Add in a carbon fiber 1-1/8 to 1.5 tapered fork and you've got the makings of a stunning all-arounder that's ready to bring your road riding to new heights. Shimano's renowned Ultegra 11-speed components are spec'd for the shift/brake levers, derailleurs, and cassette with a Shimano R350 crankset rounding out the drivetrain with aplomb. Marquee brand names are featured with the tires - the smooth-rolling Continental Ultra Race - as well as the saddle - classic Italian craftsmanship and quality in the Selle San Marco ERA Startup Power. Rounding out this exemplary build are Mekk's own Saturae aluminum components for the wheelset, brakes, handlebar, stem, and seatpost. Mekk is the brainchild of Mark Edwards (ME) and Ken Knight (KK) , a pair of Brits with extensive experience in high-performance cycling in both the racing and production realms, and they've delivered a tour de force bike worthy of the legacy of Milan-San Remo's iconic Poggio ascent.
