MEC Adanac 500 Bicycle - Unisex
The bike for a crosstown bike route that beats the traffic every time. We’ve teamed an aluminum frame with a carbon fork and handlebars, and added an aluminium steerer to keep strength high, weight low and brass in your pocket. A 2 x 10 groupset, more like one you'd find on a mountain bike, reduces gearing redundancies and feels natural from day one. The X-Glide technology borrowed from SRAM mountain bike components lets you shift crisply up the sprocket or down. And the hydraulic disc brake setup brings you to a shudder-free stop outside any neighbourhood craft brewery.
- Lightweight, tapered aluminum frame.
- Carbon fibre fork with aluminum steerer and carbon handlebars keep the weight down and the ride smooth.
- SRAM Via GT components include cranks with X-Glide technology, and hydraulic brakes developed in concert with Avid.
- Crank Brothers Candy clipless pedals are mountain tough and city pretty.
- SRAM 2 x 10 groupset is developed for urban rides and trekking.
- Big 700C wheels roll almost effortlessly, and 32mm tires provide excellent adhesion, stability and cornering. The width protects the rims and resists pinch flats.
- 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 are designed in Canada. Everything from the frames to the graphics is developed at the MEC Head Office in Vancouver, BC.

The hub affects a bike’s rolling efficiency. Internally geared hubs require significantly less maintenance.
Cassettes with a smaller range allow you to go faster; a bigger range makes climbing hills easier.

How to measure
- Standover (J)
- Distance from the ground surface to the top of the top tube. Measured at the mid-point of the top tube, or where the rider would be standing when straddling the bike. This measurement should be 2-3cm shorter than your inseam.
