    New bike day - Cinelli Mash 55cm - Grey

    New bike day. I played with some stem, bar and pedal options and decided to shoot it in track setup. for the street I'll probably run the speedplays but with some track pedals with cages on days I just want to walk around a bit. The risers I have pictured are just temporary. I have some Deda Streetissimo risers on order that I'm really excited about. I came quite close to getting a green one but don't regret the decision now that I see it finished.

    First off thanks to Vixtor for offering some advice when I needed a second pair of eyes for perspective.

    Ok, list of parts:

    Cinelli Mash 55cm Grey
    Columbus headset
    Ambrosio Pista wheelset with Miche hubs
    Miche 2 piece "no-whip" cog and lockring
    Miche Primato Advanced crankset. 165mm with 49t chainring
    Miche 107mm BB
    Speedplay pedals
    SRAM PC-7X chain
    Michelin ProRace 3 tires
    Cinelli Pista stem 130mm
    Deda Pista track drops (*alternating with generic risers for now)
    Cinelli Vai Bianca seat post in 31.6
    Cinelli seat clamp
    San Marco SKN saddle

    Everything came in this box. Click here to see the majority of the above parts.



    I was in Montreal for work all week when my parts showed up. Got in late Thursday, slept in Friday then headed to the post office. Next up was to head over to Frank's house on Friday afternoon. He's new to building bikes and I wanted to show him a few things so he can build up his new bike that's coming from the UK next week.



    Next came two days of sea trials getting wheelbase preferences, bar angles, breaking in the wheels, perfect seat angles etc. I spent some time on it with risers and jeans then in spandex and drops. Everything is sorted, cleaned up and ready for some pics:

    Over the past year or so, I've inevitably come to associate Cinelli with jackass.

    This bike shows a ray of hope. I dig it. I'd prefer it with bullhorns myself, but overall, tastefully put together .

    I totally agree. I've seen many a jackass build and I wanted to bring some respect to this frame. I think it will age well.

    As for bullhorns, I have some Deda Crononeros in 42cm on order.

    Nice build.

    That's a nice (and expensive) frame. One word of advice:



    This was rule #1 when I worked in a shop: Do not clamp the frame. Clamps will dent. It happens. It is cheaper to replace a seatpost than a frame. If you aren't exposing enough seatpost to clamp, pull it out till there is enough and put it back when you are done.

    The bike is softly in the clamp. We were pulling it off and on a couple times and yes, I don't like to dent frames.

    I personally don't use a bike stand (this was not built at my home). Never have until this time. I'm not fond of them oddly.

    much better done than the typical aerospoke/deep v mashes everywhere on velospace. my only gripe are the deda pistas/deep drop down stem, which makes me uncomfortable looking at it. wheels look great. price/weight?

    Wow...this came out much better than I expected...uber nice, Doc!
    How do you like the Pro3 so far? I've always wanted to try them but I know they are race tires and will wear quickly if I used it daily.

    I agree with Nate, I often associate the Mash with the cliche tarck brakeless build owned by some mustachio'd dude but this is actually a track bike.
    Good job, Doc!

    I built this for a total of $1300 CDN. I have not weighed it accurately but my digital scale says 16.5 pounds.

    The Cinelli Pista stem and the Deda Pista bars may look extreme but I did 40kms in them last night with no numbness. I have a couple Cinelli stems that I can use if the need arises. Once on the velodrome this combo will feel great. See the bar angle?

    Everyday riding I'll be using these:

    Thanks Vixtor. It looks better than I pictured it too. As you know I was labouring over the details of making this come out right since this frame has been butchered by many. Bib has always smiled on me, love Michelin tires. I have great confidence in them and these are no exception. Quiet, gooey and tough to mount - we'll see how they wear and handle flats. I'm not a skidder so getting some life out of them should not be an issue. I assume they will love the wood of Burnaby Velodrome just fine.

    Take extra damn care mounting these tires though, you'll pinch the tube so easy as you shoehorn them on for the first time. I read they get easier second mount.

    They are a tad expensive for me, I probably won't be using them on my beater. I recently received a set of Lithion 2 tires from a trade, kind of interested how they'll do but my Krylions are still in good condition.

    When will you be heading to the track? I want to watch you race on that thing.

    Nice build. Parts are different, but overall we have a very similar setup (in looks) for track!

    I like this frame a lot but the color is ugly in my opinion.

    I like Deda bars, it must be a fetish. I can see the bullhorns getting the most use though.

    i hope you dont like dedas for the weight. they lie about everything by an incredible amount, sometimes 35% or more.

    The Sigma 15mm 2.8 is a very underestimated lens. Pro quality. When I shot professionally I had all Nikkor glass from 10.5 to 300mm all 2.8 or faster...and a Sigma 15mm 2.8.
