Show Description

Like all single speeds, the Skyway is a different sort of bike that rolls through the urban hullabaloo without fuss or fanciness. For this season, we refreshed the rim colour and made it a more practical ride. It now has brazons so you can mount fenders, a stealthy low-maintenance belt drive, and road handlebars to vary your grip options. We also gave it a more relaxed frame geometry, so you can load it up with text books or groceries and have an easier pedal home.

  • Reynolds 525 steel frame for tradition and a sweet ride.
  • Belt drive is virtually maintenance free and extremely quiet.
  • 700 x 25mm tires provide low rolling resistance.
  • Tektro R530 brakes (rim brakes) provide great stopping power.
  • Braze-ons make it easy to attach racks, fenders, and water bottles.
  • Wellgo track pedals with toeclips and straps help keep your feet on the pedals.
  • MEC Ergo road handlebars provide lots of grip options.
  • MEC Track saddle.
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC Bike Shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
  • MEC bikes were designed in Canada. Everything from the frames to the graphics was developed at the MEC Head Office in Vancouver, BC.
