Mekk Pinerolo AL 1.5 Road Bike. The Mekk Pinerolo AL 1.5 delivers a remarkable value for those making their first foray into the world of road cycling. Sporting classic road geometry and an eye catching paint job, it's a true all arounder with a double butted aluminum frame and carbon fiber bladed fork providing a superb, high performance platform. Shimano Sora 9 speed shifters, derailleurs, and cranks are very reliable performers while the Shimano R501 aluminum wheels coupled with Continental Ultra Sport II tires means you're rolling in style. Capped off with an Italian made Selle San Marco ERA Start Power saddle, this aluminum rocket ship is ready to blast off over hill and dale or anywhere the road takes you. Mekk is the brainchild of Mark Edwards ME and Ken Knight KK, a pair of Brits with extensive experience in high performance cycling at both the racing and production end of the spectrum.
