MEC Provincial Road 222 1x Bicycle - Unisex


See available road bikes


This trusty bike has 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 bikepacking. The tire clearance and a low overall weight makes it a strong contender for bicycle touring. The carbon fork uses a 12mm thru-axle instead of a standard QR set up, to reduce flex under hard braking, cornering and accelerating. To keep you riding longer, we've kitted this bike with a comfortable Fabric Shallow Sport saddle. Solid SRAM Rival 1x groupset with hydraulic brakes shifts smoothly and gives you nuanced, powerful braking, and a stiff Alex Boondocks 5 wheelset grounds it with responsive handling and flex-free performance.
