Show Description

Gravel grinder, single tracker, asphalt crusher, all-rounder: the Cote legend continues. Solid, comfortable and reliable, the steel frame is unchanged from the Cote of years past – and why should it be? Compliant enough to soak up chuddery gravel roads yet light enough to hang in on club rides when running road tires, it's a truly versatile and do-anything frame. The latest iteration of proven Shimano Tiagra tech adorns this year's model. Featuring hidden shifting cables, a first for Tiagra, while also incorporating the sexy 4-arm 110BCD crank design used on Shimano's Dura-Ace and Ultegra offerings, Tiagra 4700 is a huge step up from last year. Trickle-down tech from Shimano's top shelf also appears in the front derailleur, with a longer link arm for effortless and precise shifts. Powerful Shimano R517 mechanical disc brakes provide outstanding stopping power and modulation regardless of conditions. Commute, grind, noodle, race – whatever you're into, the Cote makes it happen.

  • Reynolds 520 steel frame is stable, durable, ridiculously smooth and chock-full of mid-century prestige. A slightly lowered bottom bracket yields an ultra-stable ride.
  • Shimano® R517 mechanical disc brakes provide nuanced modulation and powerful stopping power regardless of terrain or weather.
  • Shimano Tiagra 4700 gruppo is solid and better than ever. Achingly gorgeous 110BCD crank is stiff, light and easy to service. Dura-Ace inspired front derailleur provides light, precise and fast shifts. Redesigned shift/brake levers feature stealthy routing for the first time.
  • 10-speed drivetrain with 11-32t cassette and compact 50-34t crank provides a wide gear range for pretty much any kind of riding.
  • Big 35C tires work well on unpaved roads and potholed city streets.
  • Threaded eyelets for racks and/or fenders.
  • Huge tire clearance for high volume tires and mega-fender setups.
  • Alex AClass CXD5s are tubeless-ready and ready for the rigors of cyclocross – heat-treated alloy rims, aluminum hubs and sealed bearings tie the build together.
  • 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. From frames to, to graphics, to componentry builds, every element of the bike 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.
