step two – MASH

I’d be be lying if I didn’t include Cinelli MASH in my search for my new fixie. I think pretty much anyone who has wasted time on urban bike blogs will have seen these bikes before and some may have even seen them on the streets.  The MASH crew from San Fransisco combined with Cinelli to make their own bomb proof street bike, heavily based on track frame geometry.  Now into their 3rd incarnation they are still the leaders and set the bar in style and quality for others to aspire to.  Their Histogram frame (the colourful one in the pics) gave the bike an even more aggressive geometry and a sweet matte paint job.  They did also simultaneously released the ‘Bolt’ which I love, with its clean paint job and geometry closer to the original –  which is meant to be nicer to ride day to day but still retain a fast twitchy feel. Anyway I think you’ll agree they look awesome.  They are hard to come buy so they may stay a dream for the time being, but the bolt is definitely in the mix for me.
