Mekk Primo 6.0 road bike review

Mekk Primo 6.0 Road Bike
Cycling Weekly Verdict

Mekk knows this bike will perform better with a wheel upgrade. If you've already got a decent set then fine, but if you haven't and you want to get the true potential of this frame that should be factored in. Putting in a lighter set of Mavic Ksyrium Elite S hoops transformed the ride; acceleration and road feedback noticeably increased, as did the bike's climbing characteristics.

The Primo range from up and coming UK brand Mekk showcases its racing line-up, consisting of three models all built around the same frameset; the 6.0 is the most basic offering.

Frame and fork is constructed from 3K carbon-fibre, offering a good ratio of stiffness and strength. It has aero profiling, with the main triangle and fork all having optimally shaped tubes. The overall finish of the carbon, internal cable routing, graphics and decals all combine to make a sensibly good looking bike.
