MEC Provincial Road 222 Bicycle - Unisex



Show Description

Asphalt, single track, gravel grinds – the Provincial Road 222 is about as close to a do-anything bike as it gets. The stability focused Reynolds 520 steel frame soaks up chuddery gravel roads and potholes, and is light enough to hang in on club rides when running a 25 or 28C road tire setup. 11-speed SRAM Rival gruppo provides a gear range ready for any situation from logging roads to smooth blacktop, while powerful Rival hydraulic disc brakes yield solid stopping power and nuanced modulation regardless of conditions. Looking to race cyclocross? Tubeless ready wheels let you hit that tire pressure sweet spot come race day. The carbon fibre fork is future-proofed and stiff thanks to a 15mm thru axle, and soaks up road buzz and everyday cobbles.

  • Reynolds 520 steel frame with lowered bottom bracket for stable handling.
  • Carbon fibre fork with aluminum steerer.
  • Front fork only compatible with 15mm thru axles.
  • 11-speed SRAM Rival gruppo yields fast shifts and solid braking in a lightweight package.

  • Compact 50/34 crank and huge 11-32t cassette means a gear range ready for every kind of ride.

  • Hubs are sealed for durability and smoothness.
