See available road bikes


This is the bike you take when you set your mind to riding across Canada. With top-shelf Shimano® components and a traditional steel frame (coated in classic deep burgundy) the National rolls in as our long-haul touring bike. Illustrated decals on the frame depict crests from all 10 provinces and 3 territories – tick them off as you trace routes, paths, ice-roads, and the Trans-Canada Highway and rack up the kilometres.

  • Reynolds 520 steel frame for a traditional, solid-feeling ride
  • Larger diameter (700) wheels roll efficiently. 32mm tires protect the rims and resist pinch flats
  • Shimano® BR-CX50 cantilever brakes are easy to maintain and have good mud clearance
  • FC-4603 Tiagra Triple Hollowtech-2 crank with Shimano® 12-30 10-speed cassette provide gear options for powering up the Rockies and spinning through the Prairies
  • Threaded fittings allow you to attach racks, fenders, and water bottles
  • Sold with a Fizik Nisene saddle
  • Shimano® Tiagra components
  • This model is not equipped with pedals
  • 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
