MEC National Bicycle - Unisex


See available road bikes


We took our classic long-haul bike and beefed up the braking so you can open it up on fast mountain roads. This steel frame touring bike is a nod to the past and looks perfectly in place cruising along Canada’s long, open highways. TRP Spyre C disc brakes keep you in control in all road and weather conditions. Shimano® components keep your ride rolling on long open stretches past the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border. It’s right around then that you’ll be thankful for the form-fitting comfort of the Brooks saddle, too.

  • Triple-butted Reynolds 520 steel frame is solid and dependable
  • TRP Spyre C disc brakes paired with 160mm rotors provide solid stopping power
  • Shimano Deore, LX and XT components provide granny-gear options for climbing in the Rockies and power gears for opening it up through the prairies
  • Touring-ready wheels use 36 DT Swiss Champion spokes to lace the trusty Deore hubs to Mavic rims
  • 2 spares spokes are mounted to the non-driveside chainstay for when you really need them
  • 32mm Vittoria Randonneur Tech tires provides comfort, puncture resistance and grip on a wide variety of surfaces
  • Brooks B17 for great comfort from one side of the province to the other
  • Rear disc mounts inside the rear triangle so it won’t interfere with racks or fenders
  • 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. From frames, to graphics, to componentry builds, every element of the bike is developed at the MEC Head Office in Vancouver, BC
