For those seeking a remarkable value in a road bike look no further than the Mekk Pinerolo 2.0. Featuring classic road geometry and eye-catching graphics, it’s a true all-arounder with a triple-butted aluminum frame and carbon fiber-bladed fork providing a superb, high-performance platform. Shimano Tiagra 10-speed shifters and derailleurs plus Shimano R565 cranks are precise and reliable while the Shimano Sora brakes and HG50 cassette are rock solid performers. Shimano makes remarkable wheels as well and their R501 aluminum wheelset coupled with Continental Ultra Sport II tires ensures you’re equipped for all-around riding. Capped off with an Italian-made Selle San Marco ERA Start Power saddle, this aluminum steed is ready to fly over hill and dale or anywhere the road takes you. 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.
This is the Kestrel Legend Ultegra Road Bike. At a mere 780 grams, the brand-new Kestrel Legend is the lightest frame The First Name in Carbon Fiber has ever produced. Made of ultra high-modulus carbon fiber with a remarkable weight-to-stiffness ratio, the Legend’s Kestrel EMS fork and H-stays provide compliance, comfort, and improve lateral stiffness; the proprietary tapered head tube enhances steering precision and front-end stiffness; and asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain-induced torque on the rear triangle. Features: Featherweight 780 grams – lightest frame Kestrel has ever produced Ultra high-modulus and high-strength carbon fiber with ground-breaking weight-to-stiffness ratio PU inner molds supply smoother inner walls, an increase in stiffness, better compaction, minimized wrinkles, and optimized resin content EPS foam forming used in the manufacturing of the fork provides better layup in the crown area for improved compaction and resin content Kestrel EMS fork and H-stays provide compliance, comfort, and improve lateral stiffness Proprietary tapered head tube enhances steering precision and front-end stiffness Asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain-induced torque on the rear triangle Size-specific frame for each frame size. Larger frames use slightly larger diameter tubing for increased stiffness for larger riders. Downtube and top tube wrap around the head tube for increased front-end stiffness, which aids in steering precision.
There’s no better means to take the plunge into the wonderful world of disc brake road bikes than the Cavalo Gara Disc Road Bike. It’s quite a package deal replete with an aluminum frame, carbon fiber fork, Shimano 105 11-speed components, Mavic Aksium One wheels, plus, of course, a set of mechanical disc brakes to keep your speed properly in check. The Cavalo Gara disc road bike sports a custom-butted aluminum frame with sculpted tubes and a tapered 1 & x215B;” to 1 ” headtube that’s light, stiff, and rides like a dream. There’s a full carbon fork with the corresponding tapered steerer tube fork that inspires confidence courtesy of its rock solid and utterly predictable handling. Shimano’s superb 105 5800 groupset delivers a perfect 10 for value, craftsmanship, and performance as it makes the leap to 11-speed. You’ll be blown away by how well this stuff works as so much functionality, precision, and reliability has trickled down from big brothers Dura-Ace and Ultegra. The shifter/brake levers, front derailleur, rear derailleur, crankset, and cassette all fly the 105 11-speed flag and if these parts were logo-free you’d be hard pressed to distinguish their performance from its much higher-priced Shimano siblings. If you’ve ever had issues with the functionality of caliper rim brakes, you’ll certainly be impressed by how well the Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes perform. Once you try out disc brakes, no matter if it’s wet or dry out, you’ll be a convert for life. Weather won’t be an issue for reliable, consistent stopping power and even in dry, pristine conditions they’re truly a game-changer. The perfect complement to the Cavalo Gara’s Aries disc brakes is a set of Mavic Aksium One wheels. These disc brake-specific road wheels feature a litany of Mavic’s technical know-how applied to disc brake-equipped bikes. The S6000 aluminum rim features a profile optimized for disc brakes while the spoke geometry and lacing pattern is also configured to best accommoda
