Frequently imitated, never duplicated. The Mash frameset has been developed in collaboraton with MASH SF, combining some serious track heritage with cutting edge urban style. With its Columbus Airplane triple butted tubeset, and reverse-sloping top tube, the Mash is of the highest performance; whether you are racing around the track or to a lunch appointment. With styling from the likes of Garret Chow, Mike Martin, and Benny Gold, you can be assured that the Mash is not only the fastest thing on two wheels, but also the most stylish.
Weaknesses: Some of the welds look like they came out of a toothpaste tube.
Great frame for fast riding. If you are strong enough you can shame road bikes on group rides. It is very stiff but the handling is not twitchy. I never liked compact frames so the mildly pursuit rake is perfect for me. Put on some bullhorns and get low. You need to set this bike up to take advantage of its strength (aerodynamics). Put on some Hed 3 clinchers and make sure you run it fixed.
I think this bike got a bad rap because of all the artsy fartsy marketing.
