The Mash and Cinelli Work Frames are Now Shipping

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.

Mash has collaborated with Phil Wood three times now and while the original high flange green hubs were very, very nice these battleship gray low flange models turned out exquisite. These bombproof hubs are 32 hole, fixed / fixed and would look great on a street or a race wheelset.

Pick up a set of these killer hubs at Mash

Mash SF: Chas on Battery Street

All I can think watching this (and after navigating the ever-increasing congested streets of SF last week) is… suckers! Chas steers no-handed with ease through a sea of sedentary car commuters who’d be better off riding bikes in the great city of SF. Nice one Mash!

Rubber Side Up 11

Dylan Buffington from Mash took a bit of a spill during this year’s Red Hook Crit Brooklyn after a racer went down in front of him. Luckily for Dylan, the metal barricades cushioned the blow and his hand took a majority of the damage. He was rushed to the ER and stitched up before being sent home.

This was Dylan’s first ever Red Hook Crit and it left him eager to get back out there again. Racing brakeless track bikes in a criterium-format race is a true testament to bike control, race tactics and straight up luck. Sometimes you have the latter on your side, sometimes you don’t.

Glad you’re back on the bike and already ripping brother. See ya soon!

Mash has been working on a few new projects and part of that is documenting track bikes being thrashed on the streets of SF. This shot of Dylan on California street is amazing. The lean, the composition and those tracks. If you’ve ever ridden down this particular strip of road in SF, you know how rad this is… Keep ripping, Dylan.

Stay tuned for more at Mash!

Words by Morgan Taylor and photos by Stefan Feldmann

Some builds come together quickly, while others are more of a slow roast. This one falls into the latter category: a collection of carefully matched parts coming together over a few months. The wait was worth it, though, and Kenjitsu’s (known as 21 Ninjas on Instagram) Parallax project has finally come to fruition with everything in its place.

The simplicity of track bikes is no doubt what led many of us down the road of parts upgrades, but Kenjitsu’s bike goes beyond simply matching colors for the sake of it. The Campy Record Pista crankset and Izumi chain are classic track bling, but this build is firmly situated in the modern era with the Cadence x Ritchey C260 stem, Cinelli NEOS carbon bar and post, and MASH x San Marco Concor rounding out the contact points.

However, it’s the wheels that stand out here. The purple Phil Wood Tsunami Relief hubs – set #02 of five – feature artwork by Wakako from Blue Lug laser engraved by Grayson Yokota. The 90mm flanges are laced to H Plus Son Archetype 32 hole rims via Sapim CX-Ray bladed spokes, making for a truly drool-worthy wheelset.

Kenjitsu capped off the build with a purple Radavist top cap and a pair of NOS Time ATAC World Champion Carbon MTB pedals. Look for Kenjitsu and the Parallax on the streets of Vancouver this spring!

Those of you who shoot a lot of medium format film know exactly where Mash got inspiration for their new Ass-Savers Extended Fender. This is so good! Head over to Mash to see more photos and to pick one up. These fenders are really great.

Mash SF: Film Canister Purist Bottles

As I was dropping a few rolls of film off yesterday, I thought to myself “I wonder who will make the first film canister bicycle bottles?” Well, that answers that. Personally, this is my all time favorite bottle flip.

It helps a lot when your teammate just so happens to be a expert at frame design and painting, especially when you win the 2013 California State ‘Cross Championships. Garrett Chow recently completed and photographed this bike for Mash-teammate, Walton Brush. Even if it did come at the end of the season, it’s still an incredible machine!

Check out some words by Garrett and more photos below!

The 2015 Cinelli Bar Tape Line

For 2015, Cinelli has a few new tape models hitting the shelves, along with two key collaborations with Mash and Red Hook Crit. Both the Chubby and Fluo tapes look great, but you can’t go wrong with the Mash Parallax design either! All of these new tape models are currently in stock at the Cinelli Winged Store.
