The Mekk looks like a pretty good deal to me

they provided a geo chart perhaps you missed it. might be more racy. you'd have to compare.

Thinking of a new endurance bike, I have been looking at:

https://www.rei.com/product/892477/cannondale-synapse-carbon-105-5-bike-2017

Mekk Poggio SE 0.4 Road Bike

One obvious difference: the Cannondale is $2,000; the Mekk is $1,100 (including cost of assembly).

Another difference: I know the Cannondale fits me; I will not know about the Mekk until I receive it (and so I might have to return it).

Anyone have any idea whether the general quality of the Cannondale is really that much higher?
Another difference is the geometry of both frames. They are somewhat different with the Cannondale being more endurance oriented.

Personally, I would spend the extra $$ and go with the Cannondale. It's a well known brand with good customer support.

Other differences are the Cannondale has a compact crank 50/34 and a wider range cassette 11-32T. It also has Shimano 105 brake calipers, not the off-brand of the Mekk. The wheelset on the Mekk is an off-brand too.

While the Mekk may seem like a great deal, you basically get what you pay for.
