MEC Silhouette Bicycle - Unisex


See available urban and commuter bikes


Decked out with high-end parts and performance oriented geometry, the Silhouette is a well-priced urban ride that's comparable to the MEC Midtown. It's designed to be your daily ride and ready for high mileage, construction zones, and debris in the bike lane. Outfit it with a rack and panniers and you’ve got yourself a super eco-vehicle for groceries, cruising to the gym, and getting to your day job.
