We all know the logo above. It can conger up many different response as well. The MASHSF crew hits one demographic, while the high end carbon and steel find homes with a completely different set. Now the Bootleg Hobo adds a third. Introduced earlier this summer, the Hobo is part of the Cinelli Bootleg project which combine features of different bikes to break out of the mold of what a specific bike can do. In this case, the Hobo slots between a commuter, road bike, cyclocross bike, and long distance touring rig.
For Hobo build details and track bike updates, Mash past the break.
The frame is made from Columbus Cromor tubing, with a Columbus Cr-Mo steel 1 1/8th fork up front. You get a Sora derailleur in the front, with a Deore in the rear, actuated by Microshift bar end shifters. Front gearing runs 26 / 36 / 48 on an FSA crank, and the rear cassette is a 9 speed 13 – 34t affair. The wheel set consists of Alex rims mated to Shimano Deore hubs, is wrapped in Vittoria 38mm Randonneur Trail tires, and those are slowed by Tektro cantis. Yeah, we’re bummed to that it doesn’t have disc brakes too. For added value, the bike comes stock with Tubus front and rear steel (Read: repairable) racks, as well as fenders. Fully built, the bike runs $1849.
The new MASH Parallax gets a 58mm drop, and 75 degree seat angle for an aggressive bike. It has also been updated with a 1.5 “tapered steerer tube, and a scary 28mm fork rake. This thing should eat up the velodrome and help destroy others at a Red Hook crit. It really embodies pure speed, and has a killer graphics package to match.
The Zydeco cyclocross bike has been updated with disc brakes.
A new colorway was present for the Vigorelli.
This silver Histogram was present as well.
