Mekk Primo 6.5 Carbon Road Bike. Mekk pulled no punches by using Primo to name their top of the line, truly race ready road bike. The Mekk Primo 6.5 is indeed first in value as there's a complete Shimano Ultegra 6800 11 speed mechanical groupset no substitutions anywhere! plus renowned brands throughout to superbly complement the Shimano spec. And Primo may be a position you grow accustomed to as the aero optimized, full carbon frame and fork provides the foundation for finding your way to the top step of the podium in any competitive endeavor you may undertake on the road. At the Mekk Primo 6.5's heart is a monocoque frame constructed from the finest grade of Japanese carbon fiber. Not only are the sculpted tubes designed to slice through the wind, the stout BB86 bottom bracket is mated to oversized chain stays to make sure there's no power loss through frame flex when you're in the midst of throwing down maximum watts. Up front there's also a full carbon fork with aero blades that features a tapered 1 18 to 1.5 steerer for unrivalled stiffness and perfect handling. It's a rare thing these days to see a complete groupset spec'd on a road bike, and exceedingly rare that it's at the level of Shimano Ultegra 6800 11 speed. That's right the Primo 6.5 doesn't cut corners anywhere as there's the full STI shifterbrake levers, derailleurs, crankset, chain, cassette, and brakes throughout. Shimano's 11 speed Ultegra groupset is just a hair's breadth away from Dura Ace in performance at a much more economical price. The no holds barred, race ready theme continues with the inclusion of a solid set of wheels in the Mavic Aksium topped off by Continental Grand Sport Race tires. You'd be hard pressed to find a finer cockpit in the Ritchey WCS Curve handlebar and WCS C260 stem both in a stunning Wet Black finish. Capped off with an Italian made Selle San Marco ERA Dynamic saddle, and you know the Primo 6.5 is a true road ravishing thoroughbred. 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.
