This Garage Build* adapts our fully fledged performance fast-gravel frameset, the King Zydeco, to a slightly different task.
Directly referencing our iconic Cinelli Mash CXSS, ditches gears and drop bars, to become a modern machine ready to shine in the muddy circuits of a single speed cyclocross race.
A very special vintage CNC’d chain tensioner by cult Italian brand PMP is paired with Campagnolo’s Ekar crankset ensure efficient power transimission, while Crankbrothers Eggbeater pedals offer reliable clipping-in even on the wettest turns and muddiest climbs, on and off the circuits.
The whole comes together with an MTB derived 780mm wide flatbar, that - combined with long BMX style grips - give the rider enough leverage for both precise control and enhanced push on the pedals.
Shot on location in Milan. Rider satisfaction confirmed. Enjoy!
*What is a Cinelli Garage build?
A Garage build is a dream build or modification of a stock Cinelli frame/bike currently available in stock.
A Garage build goes beyond "good sense" or purely practical considerations, wandering off into the realm of atmospheres, daydreams, sunsets, unreal aspirations.
