We received an opportunity to build up one the most highly anticipated to-be-released frames this year, the green Cinelli MASH.
First of all, the paint on this frame is amazing. The green is a nice subtle sparkly green with the white being a shade of cream or even mother of pearl. As one would expect from Cinelli, the frame arrived flawless. A lot of people were very skeptical about this new color-way when it was unveiled at interbike earlier this year. It’s one of those “You have to see it in person” type things.
The Green is very hard to capture on camera or even explain in words. It’s a pearlescent sparkly not-so-bright green. You just have to see it in person. It’s BEAUTIFUL!
This build needed to be special. We started with a custom set of one-off polished iD42’s laced to Capagnolo Record Pista hubs and the new Continental Gator Hardshell tire to finish it off.
A Campagnolo Record Pista crankset with a custom Tomity-san “Tufram” Olympic-Ti coated Sugino ZEN chainring and a Izumi Super Toughness chain to finish off the drivetrain. The chainring was given to me by Tomity back in August of 2007 which I’ve never put on a bike. This build called for it.
The cockpit consists of the Nitto SLP bullhorns held on by a Nitto Fillet CT-80 stem. The saddle is a NOS SLR Evolution with a Thomson Seatpost.
This is definitely one of the sexiest bikes I’ve put together in a good while. Thanks to Ben over at Cinelli for giving us the opportunity to build this up. These are due to arrive in our shop in ~2 weeks. We are still taking pre-orders for the rare green Cinelli MASH. Head over here to pre-order yours today.
