Cinelli Mash Histogram 2012 - 55cm

Cinelli pepper + 3T Stealth 90mm w/ 15mm of spacers (unsure yet of what i feel most comfortable with)

Cinelli Mash Carbon forks + Campy standard integrated headset.

Aerojoke(looking at replacing it with a phil wood laced into a H+Son) w/ a Gaytorskin

Velocity B43 Laced into a Resist Icon 36H Track hub w/ a Zaffiro because we all know it will get shredded anyway.

SRAM Omnium 165mm + HOPE Ceramic BB (with GXP Converter shims)

San Marco Rolls + Fizik Cyrano Carbon.

Shadow Ravenger Alloy Pedals and Skin Grows back DX Pedal straps + Devil 101 Track Chain

No brakes as of yet but i have a Shimano 105 + Cain Creek Cross tops incase i feel like running it at work.

71.2 Gear inches with a 48t/18t ratio but ive ordered a sugino 75 47t chain ring. Euro-Asia Import Cog.

I bought this bike to run at work for a while because my charge plug got trashed under a car a few months ago. Since then I've been using a 53cm (too small) Volume cutter V2 for my Bike Messenger job. Ive found Volume with Huge riser bars at work is beginning to take its toll on my back, especially with a heavy bag hanging off me. I realise a heap of you will straight away burn me for using a "Pursuit" style frame for riding around the city all day, BUT in fact the Histogram isn't as pursuit as it looks and most people who have ridden one will likely have a similar opinion. Some people refer to the MASH as an aesthetic pursuit geo compared to true pursuit frames like the LOW or something of that nature.

As for the Aerospoke goes, its a gnarly strong wheel that is easy to throw a Kryptonite evo through and will (obviously) never have to be trued. its not ideal but i plan to swap it out for something less strong but still heaps lighter down the track.

Any comments and opinions are welcome.

Hey ! How tall are you ?

its all in your head...

"BUT in fact the Histogram isn't as pursuit as it looks and most people who have ridden one will likely have a similar opinion"

actually since it does have alittle bit of a pursuit style, it still makes the headtube smaller. If you'll notice you still have a headtube equivalent of a 53 cm bike.

LOL. Riigghht.

Sarcasm, yes.

Only in response to the "pursuit style" of the MASH Histogram. I like the frames, but this whole pursuit look has got people mistaking it for actual pursuit geometry (angling the top tube doesn't make it a pursuit frame).

LOW are not any more

LOW are not any more "pursuit" as a MASH.
