MEC Ace Bicycle - Children to Youths
Like a hole-in-one or a quick cross-court shot, the Ace is a phenom. With higher quality components than most kids' bikes, it's better value, more durable, and easier to ride. Your child will spend so much time cruising around on the Ace you'll wish it came in your size too. New colour sheme for the 2012 version.
- Lightweight aluminum frame.
- 24 x 2.1in. tires with all-purpose knobby tread, aggressive enough for use on most trails, and works well on hardpack too.
- Mechanical disc brakes apply more force than rim brakes with less effort and hand fatigue, and they work well in wet, dirty conditions.
- RST Capa C24 suspension fork adds comfort and adjusts to varying rider weights.
- A preload feature on the fork lets you adjust it for different rider weights.
- Wellgo double-sided flat pedals with a studded surface for good grip.
- MEC Mountain saddle with chromoly rails.
- Not intended for serious dirt jumping, down hill, or freeriding.
- Made with SRAM and Shimano® parts.
- Sized for kids from eight to eleven, or about 135 to 150cm (4ft. 5in. to 4ft. 11in.).
- 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.

Cassettes with a smaller range allow you to go faster; a bigger range makes climbing hills easier.
