An expertly crafted frame from renowned bicycle frame builder Cinelli is to drop this year. The 2011 Cinelli Zydeco Cyclocross frame is a product of precision from the noted frame builder together with the creative inputs of the Cinelli Down Under racing team from Belgium.

The new frameset was built using the sturdy, lightweight Columbus Zonal triple butted aluminum tubing. Its Pro Cyclocross geometry consists of a longer wheel base for mud clearance and stable handling, a higher bottom bracket and for superior handling, the head tube has been adjusted to become steeper. Finally, the frameset also follows a distinctly semi sloping geometry in order to improve the overall performance during a ride. The frameset also ships with a derailleur adaptor, perfect for switching on the fly.

The 2011 Cinelli Zydeco cyclocross bike is being dubbed as a first class frameset in the cycling world, and based off the specifications and fan…

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. …
