Mekk Pista T1 Track Bike
As no-nonsense and built for speed as bikes come, the Mekk Pista T1 track bike is a superb means to enter the world of velodrome cycling. The Pista T1 features a triple butted 6061 aluminum frame that's supremely stiff and light -- everything you want for rocketing around a track. And no matter if you're racing alone against the clock or amidst a mass-start event, the carbon fork with aero fork blades has all your handling needs dialed in as you slice through the air.

The founders of Mekk have quite the track racing pedigree and as a result the Pista T1 sports true track racing geometry that demands to be pushed to the limit on the boards. The wheelset features 30mm deep aluminum rims while the fixed gear drivetrain comes equipped with a 48x15 gear with a track standard 1/8" chain set-up. True to its race-ready ethos, the Pista T1 also includes two extra chainrings - 49T and 50T - so you can dial in the perfect gear ratio depending on the demands of specific events and differing velodromes. There's also a no-nonsense aluminum cockpit plus a fine San Marco saddle to round out this exceptional build.

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. Their considerable experience with track racing is brought to life via the Pista T1.

    Comments about MEKK Bicycles Mekk Pista T1 Track Bike:

    I use this bike at the velodrome track. The frame is absolutely gorgeous . Hand sanded welds , it does not have the unsightly welds that have become so common. The tubes are all shaped instead of round tubes just welded together. The paint and decals are clear coated so that it does not look like someone just slapped stickers as an afterthought. The stem is quite nice, the seat and seatpost are heavy. The wheels are nice with smooth bearings and alloy nipples. But it is the frame that makes this bike. I replaced the stem with a 110mm stem and this bike is stable not twitchy what so ever. It needs a longer stem.
    For the money nothing comes close, great velodrome, Fixie, or commuter . Mine will not take a front brake which I do not want anyway. Their seems to be some minor changes from the 2015 and 2016 models besides the color scheme.
    The 2016 in a 50 cm is less twitchy than the 2015 was in a 52 cm size. I am not sure if it is the frame size or did they tweak the geometry of the head tube angle, fork rake, trail numbers.
    The 2015 fork in a 52 cm would take a front brake, where as the 2016 in a 50 cm does not come with a front brake nor a front brake hole in the fork.
    I am very pleased with this track mekk pista tk1

        Bought for 14 year old son, then me when he outgrows it. Intended exclusively for track sessions. Great frameset for the money, very nice paint/fork.... Serviceable drivetrain.... Wheels needed truing, but no big deal.... Seatpost and seat are heavy, and nothing to get excited about, Stem looks good, but short.... Bars OK.... Ordered Friday night, received the following Friday Morning, Swapped out Seat and Seatpost.... On the Track Saturday and Sunday.... Son loves it... will upgrade wheels/Stem/bars.... Great value :)
