2011 Cinelli Mash SF

2011 cinelli mash sf   2011 Cinelli Mash SF

The highly anticipated 2011 Cinelli Mash SF, which features 6 different colors over a dominant matte black finished frame, made an appearance at this year’s Interbike.

Cinelli and Mash SF succeeded in their endeavors for a “stealth” look by using matte black. As for the artwork, the minimal graphics make it easy to mask with stickers if you decide to go that route.

The difference between the 2011 and 2010 Cinelli Mash SF is the 2011 uses slightly steeper headtube and seat tube angles. Cinelli also stated that they are still producing the green/white Mash SF, and phasing out the grey/white frameset.

Rumors around the web are saying two models will release of the Cinelli 2011 Mash SF. When we asked Cinelli, they stated it is not set in stone yet.

Retail for the 2011 Mash SF Cinelli is between $975 – $1,000 for the frame, fork, and headset. …

2011 Globe Haul City Bike

2011 globe haul city bike   2011 Globe Haul City Bike

Globe reduces the models released in the Haul series to two for 2011, a standard model and a step through woman’s bike.

The 2011 Globe Haul changed little since last year, with the exception of the cargo deck. Last year Globe used wood and for 2011 a metal deck was applied. Globe said the change makes the 2011 Haul city bike cost effective, and more environmentally friendly. Of course metal is stronger than wood, allowing you to haul heavier items. As much as 110 lbs can be hauled on the cargo deck.

The standard Globe 2011 Haul is available in blue, while the Step Through comes in red and light blue. Retail price is $610.

Rocky Mountain celebrates it 30th Anniversary with the release of two limited edition hardtail mountain bikes, the Blizzard 30th and Vertex T.O. 30th for 2011.

Both the 2011 Blizzard 30th and Vertex T.O. 30th use the most popular color schemes released by Rocky Mountain, giving both bikes a nostalgia feel, but updated with current components.

You can expect both the Blizzard 30th and Vertex T.O. 30th to come with Rock Shox SID RLT, Shimano XT Drivetrain, brakes and hubs, and Race Face Deus Cockpit. Check with your local Rocky Mountain retailer about purchasing a piece of history.
