Read the Wiggle Blog review of the Mekk Poggio 1.5 Bike here.
The groupset is a mix of Shimano's 9 speed Sora components and Mekk's own inhouse branded components (chainset and brake calipers). The shifting is reliable changing gears easily and efficiently, whilst the Mekk compact chainset coupled with the large rear cassette enables you to comfortably climb the steepest of hills and still maintain a good fast pace along the flat roads.
The wheelset comes from Shimano too and is the reliable R500 model which is a good spec at this end of the price spectrum. These are wrapped with a pair of Vittoria Zaffiro tyres giving superb grip in all conditions.
For finishing kit you get a Mekk cockpit and a Selle Italia saddle. With Mekk providing their own branded components, this helps to keep the price down, yet still provide you with a great valued and well spec'd bike.

Magazine reviews for Mekk 2G Poggio P1.5 Sora
Review from Cycling Plus
Like an expensive bike, but cheaper...
Extracts from the December 2013 Edition of Cycling Plus test.
A link to full test is listed below our customer reviews on the bike product page.
Mekk use the same frame across the Poggio range, which means that this £1099 entry-level carbon bike is built on the same chassis as the £2399 Poggio 3.5.
Given the price of the full bike, it's not that surprising that the Poggio is adorned with entry-level parts. The latest generation of Shimano's Sora groupset is good stuff, though. Gone are the old thumb-operated release levers that were inaccessible from the drops, with the shifters now working just like the rest of the Shimano range.
While Shimano's high-end groupsets are now 11-speed, Sora still gets by with 9. Mekk has chosen a middling-range 12-28 cassette to go with the compact chainset. Strong riders might find the high gears a little lacking, but for the kinds of people likely to be looking at a £1099 carbon bike it's a well-chosen set of ratios.
Many bikes at this price make do with Octalink or even square taper bottom brackets, but Mekk has plugged its own-brand two-piece chainset into the Poggio's BB86 press-fit bottom bracket.
The wheels are a good spec for the money too. Shimano's R500s aren't going to set the world alight, but you'll find a lot of unbranded hubs and rims on bikes for similar money.
It all adds up to an impressively low weight for the price, we've tested bikes considerably more expensive than this that can't match the Poggio's 8.8kg. With the Sora shifters being very nearly as smooth in action as Shimano's posher kit, from the saddle you really don't feel like you're riding what is essentially an entry-level bike (unless you look at the gear indicators). Certainly you'd notice an acceleration boost with lighter rims and tyres, but it still picks up speed with little hesitation. The handling is on the nippy side of neutral, thanks to angles knocked back just a tiny bit from full race numbers combined with a short rear end. It's a sensible geometry for a bike pitched as an all-rounder at an accessible price. There's bags of upgrade potential, but considering that it's essentially budget parts on a high-spec frame the overall package is impressively well-rounded.
