    Cinelli Mash Histogram vs. UCI rules?

    Does the Cinelli Mash Histogram frameset meet UCI rules? Looking at the geometry in comparison to the UCI rules, I donít really see a problem with the frame itself. However browsing this forum there seem to be a lot of confusion on the subjectÖ Either way, can anyone here possibly verify what the deal is?

    Cheers!

    UCI doesn't sanction ultimate street races. Its erroneous.

    Unless you intend to compete in UCI sanctioned events, who cares?

    It's like the NJS fetish: unless you're a professional keirin rider, what difference does it make?

    I see what you did there, and I didn't like it.






    I loved it.

    +1 internet for you

    Also, in all seriousness, why does it need to be up to UCI standards?

    It doesnít have to comply with UCI standards, not as such. Itís merely a measure to ensure that I can actually build the bike within budget. For instance I donít want to get caught up in a weight weenie project that I canít afford to complete.

    Since when does UCI regulate the cost of bikes?

    Yeah, that justification doesn't make any sense.

    They donít! But by ďplaying by the rulesĒ so to speak, I can afford to build just about the best bike money can buy. At least in principle I wouldnít mind spending $3-4K on a custom made frame, but with no restrictions in terms of weight, design geometry and so on, I would need an unrestricted budget.

    Eventually I might go for a custom build , but for a first build the Mash Histogram does seem to meet my criteria, let alone my wallet. In any event I will need gain some mileage to determine what works and what doesnít.

    the rules state the specs required to participate in UCI sanctioned events. that has zero to do with cost.
