MEC Silhouette Bicycle (Unisex)

Product Number: 5027-241
Made in Taiwan

Weight: 12.3kg (XX-Small)

Decked out with higher-end parts and more performance oriented geometry, the Silhouette is a well-priced urban ride that's comparable to the MEC Midtown. It's designed to be your daily ride and to endure high mileage, construction zones, and debris in the bike lane. Outfit it with a rack and panniers and you’ve got yourself a super eco-vehicle for groceries, cruising to the gym, and getting to your day job.
