Mekk Alpina AL RX 2.0 Cyclocross Bike
When push comes to shove, if we had to choose one bike to do it all a cyclocross rig would be the ideal selection. And with a stellar aluminum frame, carbon fork, 10-speed Shimano Tiagra components, plus Shimano BR-CX77 mechanical disc brakes, the Mekk Alpina AL RX 2.0 cyclocross bike is definitely your prescription for fun and excitement.

While carbon fiber is all the rage these days regarding frame material, how quickly people forget how superbly a well-made aluminum frame performs in the world of cyclocross. The Alpina AL RX 2.0's frame features triple-butted 6061 aluminum for strength, light weight, and performance. It's also disc-brake specific, features oodles of mud clearance, and sports water bottle braze-ons to keep you hydrated on extended adventure rides. Up front there's a disc-specific carbon fork that also helps keep the weight down while inspiring confidence over any terrain.

Shimano Tiagra 10-speed components are rock-steady performers no matter how wet and muddy the trails may get. The shifter/brake levers, front and rear derailleurs, 50x34T compact crankset, plus 12-28 cassette are very reliable and are easier on the wallet without compromising performance. Shimano makes superb disc brakes, too, and the Alpina AL RX 2.0 has their BR-CX77 mechanical disc brakes on board for the ultimate in all-weather stopping power.

Mekk's house brand Saturae aluminum disc wheels are plenty tough and feature a disc-specific rim that's also perfect for larger volume cyclocross tires. Rounding out the build are Saturae aluminum handlebars, stem, and seatpost for light weight and strength while a bit of Italy in San Marco's ERA Start Power saddle ensures you'll be riding in both style and comfort in the woods or on the road.

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.

    Comments about MEKK Bicycles Mekk Alpina AL RX 2.0 Cyclocross Bike:

    My first cyclocross or gravel bike, and my first bike with disk brakes. Have only had it a couple of weeks, but love it so far. Although it is a couple of pounds heavier than my Trek 5500, it seems as fast on the road, and I have set several Strava PRs with it. Have also explored some local MTB single track, and it did surprisingly well, especially as I was running 85 psi in the tires! As long as the trail is not too technical, I think it is faster than my mountain bike.
