Mekk Poggio 2.5 Carbon Road Bike
A workhorse of a road bike really has never looked or performed as well as the Mekk Poggio 2.5. The classic fit of the full-carbon Poggio 2.5 was conceived to produce the perfect all-rounder with a 3K Monocoque carbon frame and 3K carbon 1-1/8" to 1.5" tapered fork at its core. Shimano 105 shifters and derailleurs deliver crisp, reliable shifting every time while rock solid Ritchey Logic parts spec'd for the cockpit simply mean business. The all-round theme continues through the wheelset -- Shimano R500 aluminum hoops coupled with Vittoria Zaffiro tires -- and there's no skimping at the contact points either with a SR Seta saddle and comfy Mekk gel bar tape.

Mekk is the brainchild of Mark Edwards (ME) and Ken Knight (KK), a pair of Brits with extensive experience in high-performance cycling at both the racing and production end of the spectrum, and they've delivered a tour de force bike worthy of the legacy of Milan-San Remo's iconic Poggio ascent.

      Comments about MEKK Bicycles Mekk Poggio 2.5 Carbon Road Bike:

      Great ride feel especially for the money. Easy to assemble and adjust from the box. As a long time bike shop employee I was impressed with the bike. I am 5'11" and picked up the 53cm. I like the fit, I generally like my road bikes smaller but was still really glad I ordered the 53.

        Comments about MEKK Bicycles Mekk Poggio 2.5 Carbon Road Bike:

        This is a really good value in carbon bikes. I have a friend who is a bike mechanic who was really impressed with the way the bike came out of the box. A few minor adjustments and off I rode. Then I had a professional fitting and very few real changes were necessary. The fitter was very impressed, as well!!

        Comments about MEKK Bicycles Mekk Poggio 2.5 Carbon Road Bike:

        I never thought I could afford a new carbon frame bike but with the discounts and all I couldn't pass this up. It's only a couple of hundred bucks more than your average same-quality used aluminum frame brand-name bike. It is as-advertised. Now that I have it all tweaked to my comfort zone, I am very happy. I replaced the seat with a more comfortable gellissimo (the good one that they don't make any more) and put some decent continental tires on it, and it is very comfortable. I am an older rider, but ride hard, I ride between 150 and 200 miles per week in season, mileage is down now due to cold weather. I rated it five stars, I know there are a lot better, nicer bikes with campy components and all, I rated it in relation to it's cost. I don't see how you can beat it for the money. My advice, wait for nashbar to send out another one of those "take another 25% off" deals on email, then snap one of these up. Thats what I did and it was just over a grand. You just can't go wrong.

          This is a excellent bike for this price range. Carbon frame & fork. Shimano 105 deraillers & shifters with Mekk brakes. Bike arrived within a week & was packaged nicely. Paid $50 to have it built by local bike shop. Wait for the additional 20% sale, I paid $908.

            I've been riding for a long time and have ridden bikes from many manufacturers such as the big S and Italian C. This bike has a nice carbon frame with a beefy down tube, chain stays, and is Di2 ready. I've put 200 miles on the bike thus far and the bike performs well on the flats and in the hills. The paint and graphics are excellent, the Shimano 105 components are what you would expect at this price point and they shift flawlessly. I will be replacing the 105 drive-train with the Ultegra Di2 in the future to add another solid performer to my bike selections.

                I have been waiting 4 years to find an affordable carbon bike. This one seemed too good to be true but all the web searches were very positive. So I took a chance. Thirty minutes after receiving it ,I had it on the road. Other than the seat , no further adjustments were needed. The bike looks fast and is fast. I weigh 206 lbs and this bike handled it with no problem; a sturdy and responsive ride indeed. The gearing is excellent; hills are no problem. What a deal.

                  The bike was easy to assemble. I hadn't ridden a road bike for more than six months and did not have pedals for my first few rides. I've been gradually increasing distances, and did 28 miles at about 16.5 mph average today. I'm almost 73.
