Gravel Bike 2017 Mekk Pave X 2.6 (PerformanceBike Going Out Of Business Sale – Nashbar Photo Sample)

Unable to easily locate specifications, but did locate this sales blurb….

Mekk Pave X 2.6 Gravel Bike. If pushing the limits on both asphalt and gravel – within the same ride – is how you prefer to spend your time in the saddle then the Mekk Pave X 2.6 Gravel Bike makes an exemplary choice to explore the roads less travelled. The disc brake-specific frame is constructed of a high modulus Toray T800 EPS carbon fiber and paired with a with a full carbon 1-1/8 to 1.5 tapered, disc brake-specific fork that are not only light but are plenty strong and deliver an exceptional ride quality. Stiffness abounds courtesy of the stout, oversized downtube and BB86 bottom bracket shell while slender chain stays help smooth out rougher terrain. To complement this exemplary carbon fiber frameset, Mekk has spec’d the Pave X 2.6 with the ever reliable 11-speed Shimano 105 components for the crankset, derailleurs, and cassette while braking duties are handled by the superb Shimano RS685 hydraulic disc brakes. The 2×11 speed shift/brake levers are Shimano RS685 – designed to offer renowned Shimano shift quality as well as handle a hydraulic disc brake set up. The 11-speed 105 crankset features 50/34T compact chainrings and Shimano’s four-arm design which reduces weight without sacrificing one iota of strength and stiffness. The bolt circle diameter is identical for compact as well as standard size chainrings meaning one set of crank arms can do it all – just swap out chainrings to mix things up while keeping the same crankset. The disc brake-specific aluminum wheels are Mekk’s own Saturae Galaxy XC featuring 140mm rotors front and rear as well as 24 spokes front and rear to better handle the demands of disc braking. Marquee brand names are smartly spec’d with the tires – the workhorse Continental Ultra Sport II in a 700x28c size – as well as the saddle – classic Italian craftsmanship and quality in the San Marco ERA Startup Power. Mekk is the brainchild of Mark Edwards (ME) and Ken Knight (KK), a pair of Brits with extensive experience in high-performance cycling in both the racing and production realms. – $2,199.99
