There's no resting on [well-deserved] laurels for Mekk as their 2015 Poggio 2.5 features a new MU monocoque carbon frame that's both stiffer and lighter than its previous iteration. Coupled with the Poggio's classic geometry plus a 3K carbon 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 (and racing, if so desired!) to new heights. Shimano 105 10-speed shifters, derailleurs, and crankset deliver crisp, reliable shifting every time and the venerable Japanese components manufacturer is also utilized for their reliable, do-it-all R501 aluminum wheels. Marquee brand names are smartly spec'd with the tires - the workhorse Continental Ultra Sport II - as well as the saddle - classic Italian craftsmanship and quality in the Selle San Marco ERA Start. Topping off this stunner of a bike is an eye-catching paint scheme that spells it all out in black-and-white - that this is a workhorse of a bike that looks every bit is impressive as it performs.
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.
