Cinelli x Mash SF 2010 Cinelli x Mash SF 2010 Fixed Gear

Mash, a group of riders, photographers, designers, and messengers from the West Coast, became cult-famous after the release of their film MASH. Teaming up with Cinelli, Mash has created the Cinelli x Mash SF 2010 Fixed Gear. This bike is built for speed, with a stiff, reactive frame made with Columbus Altec triple butted tubes. The geometry is quite aggressive, with a negative front slope from 2.5″ to 4.5″. The Cinelli x Mash SF 2010 Fixed Gear features CNC machined aluminum dropouts. The artwork was designed by Benny Gold, a renowned surf and skateboard designer. The Cinelli x Mash SF 2010 Fixed Gear has been drilled for a front brake, but it comes plugged and painted. It comes in sizes 50, 53, 55, and 58cm.

Bianchi Pista Classic6 Bianchi Pista Classic 2010: An Urban Fixed Gear Concept

The Bianchi Pista Classic 2010 had many of its spectators salivating at this year’s InterBike. The Bianchi Pista Classic frame, a concept at the moment despite UrbanVelo’s misprint on an article earlier in the year, was “classically” done in a celeste green and  complemented with chrome lugs. The Pista Classic frame on display at this year’s InterBike was made complete with after-market parts such as a brownish swede saddle, drop down handlebars, and a white wheel set that matched beautifully with the white bar-tape. There’s still many questions surrounding the Bianchi Pista Classic, which we hope to find answers for in the near term.
