Building on their CXR’s geometry and made with double butted steel, the all-new 2011 Masi CXSS singlespeed cyclocross bike looks to be more for exploring and riding than top level competition, at least with the stock tires.
Rolling off the showroom on massive 45mm wide Panaracer tires, you’d need to swap them out for UCI competitions. Even with that wide rubber, their new carbon fork has wide mud clearance. As Masi puts it: “this is the perfect bike for SS race geeks as well as those who like to go hunting trails or dirt roads.”
This bike joins their other 2011 ‘cross and road bikes, which are gloriously displayed right here. Hat tip to Drew for the heads up on this one!
