2015 Cinelli Mash Work Frame 53cm

still playing with some parts to see what feels good in this thing. This, as you know, is a "work frame". It's supposed to be utilitarian, and that's what I'm building. A ride that is comfortable to beat around town on, scrape up, skid up and down the street, get wet and muddy and rusty. I'll save the fancy Phil Wood for my dream bike....btw, anyone have a 54cm GT US Olympic National Team frame in mint condition they want to give me?

I'm thoroughly enjoying the evolution of this build. Nobbies and risers is the best combo imo.

Better get on that Phil Wood Crankset soon! This year (2016) is the last year they will be producing them. I was told somewhere around 60 would be made and then it will officially be discontinued from them.

great ride dude! and buying all the perfect parts at the same time would be sooo boring, because you dont know how to spend your money in the next few month ;-)

Thanks man! I agree, half the fun is having to re-buy half the shit you put on because it's not "PERFECT YET". Lol

looks so good! i love this frame. thomson stem, wider bars, different grips, a front rack and it would be perfect! also, about the rust, it has a clearcoat so it really shouldnt rust at all

Cinelliworkaholic says:

Thanks! I went with a cheap strm from the bike shop down the street, and had some old short bars laying around, i see now the error of my ways.... Will change.

The clearcoat definitely does not prevent it from rusting. See:

DAMN^ that looks sick but once it got to a certain point i would definitely look into some kind of metal stuff that preserves patina and is reapplicable. sizemore bicycles comes to mind

What do you think now?

alex-g says:

looks ok, put some grip on if you are going to keep the drops. what about riser bars like you originally had but wider?

run_eric says:

Nice build! I think it'll rust inevitably in spots and match your saddle haha. Align those tire logos with your valve for maximum street cred!

Posted over 8 years ago

Cinelliworkaholic says:

Good point on the rust, looking forward to that. I've never thought about logo alignment, will be my project for the day! Lol

Posted over 8 years ago

Cinelliworkaholic

Cinelliworkaholic says:

Done, it does ride a bit smoother with the logos aligned...

that frame looks like 50-51 cm tho. it's sweet, keep it like that.

Posted over 8 years ago

Cinelliworkaholic

Cinelliworkaholic says:

Does look small but it's because it's because the wheelbase is short and its tall. Looks sqaushed

Different cranks, time atacs, and wider bars are the only things i'd change. Nice build!

Awesome, thinner than the C17 so it fits me better. Also the cutout gives it more flex and takes a bit of weight off.
