    Cinelli Mash SSCX on 700x28c tires?

    A local dealer has the '13 Mash SSCX for a very nice price. Could I run 28c tires on it? I picked up an Eastside Fyxation on Cyber Monday for a good deal, but since I'm in Asia they're going to ship it directly from Taiwan at the end of the month. For a little more I could have the Cinelli built up. Which would you go for?

    Easily. I also expect that it is a much nicer frame given that it costs almost four times as much. Do you want to run cantilever brakes?

    Well the Fyxation is chromoly and the Cinelli is aluminum--would be nice to have a steel-framed bike for a change! I don't mind running cantis. Would they work with the smaller wheels/tires? I believe the SSCX has 120 rear clearance...

    Yep!

    The dealer has ONE frame in my size (56 cm) and it's on clearance for $600. I have paid $715 for the Eastside (complete bike). With basic components I'd probably be looking at around $900-1000 for the Cinelli I think...

    Also, to further complicate things, I'm a stone's throw away from Colossi's factory, and prices on their frames are very fair here.

    I think you are underestimating this. The usual advice for building up a bike is to take your estimated budget and double it. I wouldn't even expect to get the wheels you are getting on the Fyxation for much less than $200 and then you still have to get crank, bottom bracket, pedals, saddle, bars, headset, etc.

    US dollars?
    Are they charging like 250-300 to ship?
    I could have sworn I saw the eastside for around 399 or 450 on monday.

    I live in Hong Kong--they originally offered to ship from Taiwan for $300 (USD), but I said I'd just take a frame for the 20% off. Then on Monday they did the Eastside for $395 shipped, so I jumped on it. They wouldn't give me the $300 for shipping though as they said they were subsidizing shipping at the original price + discount, which was fair enough. They still gave me $25 off the shipping because of the complicated purchase/refund cycle we went through over the weekend.

    Chinese-made components are a lot cheaper here, and there is actually some really good stuff coming out of China right now (less than 1% of all Chinese production maybe, lol).

    $900 may indeed be a low estimate, but they do built bikes for good deals. I can get a fully built Cinelli for around $700 from the dealer.

    Maybe I should just keep the Fyxation and remove the decals--it'll be one of the only ones on the road, and sans decals, won't scream STEAL ME if I leave it locked up somewhere. Fyxation DO have a local dealer as well.

    I probably would try to find something locally if it were me, because 300 dollars for shipping is outrageous.

    True, but the specs on the Eastside are good and $715 isn't a bad price for one considering it has to be shipped over from Taiwan. I just have to wait until the end of the month...

    You must be getting an incredible deal because the Cinelli frameset alone retails for about $1100.

    Around $650, but I can probably get it for $550 or 600 if it's being built up for me. Heck of a deal...
