The Cinelli mash is very fast, very stiff, and very harsh. It's a love-hate relationship with this bike, a constant battle, I was never satisfied with the components on it, always upgrading hoping to get a better ride feel. Because a stiff aluminum frame like this (Columbus Airplane tubing) you can feel the grind of every tooth to the chains and every gravel on the road so there was no room for error like an imperfect chainline etc. This frame is fast and responsive, just point and shoot and it has no springy recoil like you get on a steel frame.
