Show Description

Asphalt, single track, gravel grinds, the Provincial Road 222 is about as close to a do-anything bike as it gets. For 2017, it gets a stability-focused steel frame for a smooth ride and flickable responsiveness. Light enough to hang in on group rides, it's still tough enough for the rigours of cyclocross, and has tire clearance and a low overall weight to get touring versatility. The carbon fork uses a 12mm thru-axle instead of a standard QR set up, for less flex under hard braking, cornering and accelerating. To keep you riding longer, we swapped last season's saddle for a more comfortable Shallow Elite saddle. Solid SRAM Rival groupset with hydraulic brakes shifts smoothly and gives you nuanced, powerful braking, and a stiff CXD4 wheelset grounds it with responsive handling and flex-free performance.

  • Columbus Cromor steel frame with lowered bottom bracket for stable handling.
  • Carbon fibre fork with aluminum steerer.
  • Front fork only compatible with 12mm thru axles.
  • 11-speed SRAM Rival gruppo yields fast shifts and solid braking in a lightweight package.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes provide outstanding power and modulation regardless of weather.
  • Compact 50/34 crank and huge 11-32t cassette means a gear range ready for every kind of ride.
  • Wheels are tubeless ready and lightweight at 1536g.
  • Hubs are sealed for durability and smoothness.
  • Big 35C tires work well on unpaved roads and potholed city streets.
  • Tire clearance of 50mm in the rear, and 56mm in the front allows for high volume tires and mega-fender setups.
  • 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 are developed at the MEC Head Office in Vancouver, BC.
