i think the mash x cinelli frame looks really good. i like the pursuit geometry of it, as well as the oversized aluminum tubing look. i am not sure how comfortable it would be on long rides due to the geometry, but columbus headset sketchiness aside it seems like a really nice frameset.

yes, these are my actual views, i am not trolling. yes, if i had a few thousand dollars to drop on a bike i would drop it on a cinelli x mash frame w/ campy record rather than a NJS frame. ok, maybe a 3rensho or something. but that aside..

i would like to ask, the issues of MASH being "sell-outs" and making a so-so dvd aside, what is wrong with this frame? it looks like one of the best aluminium frames in the market.

Contrary to what I have posted so far, I actually do like the frame for the reasons you do as well! Yes it is very clean looking isn't it?

EDIT: In terms of the joints (joints? I don't know, someone please correct me). Compared to some other aluminum frames, Leader namely, it is very cleanly made. Welded?

Good luck man! I don't want to dishearten you or anything, but I wanted to do it because I hear/have read there are only an exclusive amount of them being made. By exclusive I mean a lot, but exclusive nonetheless. Can anyone confirm or disprove this?

yeesh it might be worth me buying this now...i don't believe they are sell-outs either, i think whoever wants to make a business out of whatever they want, should, without fear of getting ridiculed. they made a good-looking bike. in fact the best-looking aluminium bike on the market. i don't know how it rides, but that's already an accomplishment. people who want to dismiss them as sell-outs are kind of ridiculous. they're not cashing in on a trend. they're part of that trend. they all have day jobs (as far as i know) and this is just another one of their design collaboration things.

they're street fixed gear riders building a brand specifically for street fixed gear riders and i, as a street fixed gear rider, am totally OK with that. they might not be the best riders ever, but for what can be done on a fixed, they did it very well in MASH. i'm not sure exactly what you guys wanted out of the MASH film that they didn't do.

What part the me not knowing what to call where the tubes of the frame meet or the Mash frame being cleaner-looking that the Leader? or the welded bit?

ok, so you're obviously hating on the guy because he wants to get the MASH bike. you know, you can just as easily hate on the MASH brand and not the guy who happened not to know what weld joints were called. grow up.

I was referring to the fact he his comparing an Italian frame made from Columbus tubing to a brand that became popular by copying the pista concept design and tagging it on ebay. I could careless about the mash guys. If you respect them then support then, if not then don't its that simple.

Also it seems that he is the only person bringing up the fact that mash may or may not be sell outs. Honestly no one cares here. If you want to buy the frame go do it. You do not need to come on a forum and announce it to the world so we can all give you hi fives.

Aluminium frames are not good for riding on the street btw.

ok, yeah. the leader is a pretty low standard to compare anything against.

the cinelli frame is cleaner-looking for a lot of reasons, the main one being differences in paint methods on the two bikes.

i neither respect nor disrespect the MASH guys since i don't know any of them, but this bike is sexy.

Last edited by luno-pdx; 10-11-09 at 11:25 PM. Reason: i went and looked at the bike again and it kind of disproved what i said earlier

Oh I see. Well that was the only frame I could think of off hand. I guess I need to expand my frame manufacturer knowledge then.

You basically asked if a ferrari has the same build quality as a fiero with a ferrari body kit.
