Mash Transit

I grew up in the Bay Area so I have a bit of familiarity with Mash Transit, a group of cyclists in San Francisco that ride fixed and cross bicycles. I know them as the cyclists with mad skills for bombing the San Francisco hills. They regularly go on rides and welcome any cyclists who care to join them. They host cycling events, tour, and produce short films featuring their rides/riders. They produced a DVD that I have yet to purchase and watch that is self-titled. It's on my mental list of things to purchase this month. It comes with the 1 hour feature film, 1 hour of bonus features, and it also comes in a 120 page book that features the production of the film. It's definitely worth having.

These are such sweet builds. I love how they all have so much personality you can practically see the riding they've been through. In fact, I asked Mash if any of these were still in use, and apparently only the Ciocc and maybe the black Samson are being used. "Many broken bikes!!"
Figures though, right? They ride hard.
Check them out for yourself here or visit their shop in San Francisco at 773 14th Street.
