Explore the open road on two wheels. This multi-purpose bike can also be used for general city riding or long-haul touring. Named after the year the MEC was founded, the Nineteen Seventy One exemplifies MEC's core purpose – to inspire people to get outside. It's designed to be comfortable for hours of riding and adaptable to riding on pavement, over country roads, up hills, and into headwinds.

  • Lightweight 7005 aluminum frame
  • Longer wheelbase and relaxed frame geometry provide a stable, predictable ride
  • Larger diameter (700) wheels roll efficiently. 32mm tires protect the rims and resist pinch flats

  • FSA Omega 30-39-50T triple crank with Shimano® 12-25 9-speed cassette provide plenty of gear options for powering up hills and over flat terrain
  • Selle Royal Yak saddle with gel padding absorbs road shock better than foam
  • Sold with Crank Brothers Candy Clipless pedals
  • Threaded fittings make it easy to attach racks, fenders, and water bottles
  • Lots of clearance between the frame and wheel to accommodate fenders
  • Shimano Sora components
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rock Solid 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
