    MEC bike prototype?

    I got a couple of shots of what looks like a prototype MEC bike at the weekend - caught it parked at Arbutus & 4th.

    This is the second I've seen, the first was a women's design in a similar style. The details of the rear dropout are interesting - while this bike had V-brakes and a rear derailleur, this bike is pretty clearly set up to take an IGH and disk brakes (like a Swobo, only different.) Based on a label stuck on the bike, this is called a "Midtown".

    Cool. Interesting dropout.

    What type of components were on that bike?

    Unfortunately, I didn't take a note of that. Actually I didn't even notice the dropout until I was looking at the pics later.

    Looks like a non-disc version of the frame pictured on their homepage. The dropout design looks the same anyway.

    That frame could take Internal Hub Goodness.

    'tis true! Mec.ca has a banner with a bike just like the OP posted. It's called Shadowland. Hmm.... I wonder who makes it.

    Placing a bet on 700's.
    Hybrid commuter by the looks of it.
    It's not the bullet with my name on it that worries me. It's the one that says, "To whom it may concern".
