Description

A nice compilation of components and one of the first bikes available with the Nexus 5-speed internal hub from Shimano®. The internal hub allows you to switch gears anytime (stopped or rolling) and requires much less maintenance than a bike with an external drivetrain. The Nexus 5 model is now as light as the previous Nexus 3, but gives you two extra gears to drop into when you're going up hills or carrying a 5kg sack of apples. Revo shifters have a simple, fluid action and a large indicator to show you which gear you're currently in. The Mixed Tape will sound fine for anyone with a relatively flat 9 to 5 commute, who rides through cross town traffic, and mixes in the occasional country road.

  • Lightweight, tapered aluminum frame
  • 700 x 35mm tires are built for rolling on roads and dirt roads, pathways, or light trail use
  • Shimano® Acera V-brakes (rim brakes) provide great stopping power
  • Instead of derailleurs and cassettes, the Mixed Tape uses a Shimano Nexus 5-speed internally-geared hub that lets you shift gears any time, even while waiting at a stop light
  • Upright seated position for visibility in traffic
  • MEC Ergo grips provide less pressure on palms and wide, flat tops offer even weight distribution
  • Waterproof-coated saddle with gel padding to absorb shock
  • MEC Trekking pedals can be fitted with toeclips and straps
  • Shimano Acera components
  • 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
