Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Easy fix. If anodized, use oven cleaner. If powder coated (not likely) use aircraft remover. Then polish the aliminum and bamm, silver bars.

I already spend way too much time tinkering with bikes. Luckily the Soma's have worked well for me thus far.

Far from the 1st bike to be finished like that - I have to think that Cinelli/Mash should be able to figure out how to do it properly...

MASH STOREROOM | 2015 CINELLI MASH WORK FRAME SET

What I find interesting about this is: One of the selling points is you can use it for courier work. However, here in SF, the biggest courier company TCB, owned by Chas Christiansen (a member of team MASH SF), requires one to have a multi-geared bike to work for them.

Therefore, I wonder, if you had one of these and showed up to work at TCB, if ol' Chas would make an exception.

I know it's not the first. Just wondering, as I've heard people seen oxidation on their raw Kona Unit (2013) frame - a fram which is also raw with just clear coat.

I love almost everything about the work frame, I just wish it had bosses for disc brakes

I am also curious about the durability of that finish (clear over raw) on the work frame. I recall previous frames finished that way didn't last too long before needing repaint else risk rusting....

A little surface rust on a frame isn't going to cause catastrophic failure.

There is a sticker right on the Mash Work frame stating surface rust will develop naturally over time.

Guess I'll try bringing this thread back again...

Been tarcking it up lately but I'm nervous without a brake even on my tiny gearing so may not last much longer like this

I just noticed your hex crank bolts, why aren't you using the bolts and classy campy dust caps that came with them?

I use Allen key crank bolts because as nice as they make the crankset look...the "classy" Campag dust covers and bolts are a PITA

Gonna head out on this one now and hope some roadie group will let me tag along at the back even without brakes
