A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a rope swing… Rubber side up!
Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
Why does a porpoise surf a wave, or a sea otter slide down a rock? Atavism is a primal trait in humans and animals that drives us to do what we do – what ought to come naturally. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
Golden Saddle Rides: Golden Saddle Rides: Cinelli White Collar Work Bike

While the success of the Cinelli and San Francisco-based brand Mash may lie in their Histogram and other aluminum frame collaborations, the Work frameset was the first frameset that really plucked a heart string with me. When a frame rolled its way through the doors of Golden Saddle Cyclery, it hit hard with co-owner Kyle Kelley, who insisted we feature it on the site.
What’s not to love about these machines? Raw, clear-coated steel with red-inlayed machining, options to run it as a fixed gear or SSCX bike (or a FGCX bike!) with canti brakes, internal routing and a nice, level top tube.
Cinelli and Mash have done a lot of great things over the years, but I’ll always remember this bike…
Cross Was Here: A Day in the life of Chelsea Weidinger
Photos and words by Jen Abercrombie
“I’d already set the goal in my head that I was going to be the first girl on MASH. I don’t know how it’s going to happen, but it’s going to happen.” – Chelsea Weidinger
It’s January and everyone is thinking of resolutions and goals for the coming year. As cross season ended, I spent a day in San Francisco riding and talking with Chelsea Weidinger, of the MASH Cyclocross team, about how she got here and where she’s going. Chelsea hails from Columbus, Ohio. After stints working in a bank and a juice bar, she decided that coffee and bike racing were more her speed, and moved to San Francisco in 2012. (more…)
Mash is celebrating its ten year anniversary with an incredible 9×12 inch, 350-page color book. Inside is a copy of the Mash 2015 video with an additional 1 hour of bonus features as well as a decal sheet.
They’re currently running a pre-order for this new MASH book and video and are expecting to ship in early November 2015. Head over to Mash to reserve your copy now.
I got to see the video at Interbike this year and it’s so damn good!
This past weekend brought about a ten year anniversary for Mash and to commemorate this event, Garrett Chow’s newly-designed 10 Year Parallax Frame went up for pre-order. Inspired by “X”, the Roman Numeral for ten, this intricately detailed paint job is made from thousands of intersecting and overlapping lines in three dimensions. It’s by far the most complex paint design I’ve seen on a production frame.
Head over to Mash to read more and pre-order a 10 Year Parallax Frame.

Whether you’re into messengering, street fixed gear races or even singlespeed cyclocross, the new Mash Work Frames will fit the bill. Born on the streets and trails of SF, the Work Frame’s versatility is its most shining asset. As Mash’s first steel frame with Cinelli, the Work Frames were born from Chas Christiansen’s idea to have one frame to rule them all. Rather than painting the frames, Mash went with a raw, with a clear powdercoat, which will most definately patina over time with heavy use. These frames are spaced at 100mm and 120mm, with clearances for a 35mm tire and an english threaded bottom bracket.
The Work Frames are in stock now at Mash for $875.
