Mason Cycles have announced the geometry and the pricing of the two initial disc-equipped road bikes in the range, the steel Resolution and the aluminium Definition.
We’ve run a few stories here on road.cc over the past few months on the development of these bikes. Our First Look gives you the basic details on each of the bikes, and our man Stu took the Resolution for an exclusive First Ride a few weeks ago.
• The Resolution frameset is £1,459. The frame is Columbus steel and the fork is a carbon monocoque, Mason’s own design. The price includes a Mason seat collar, Deda headset, a MultiPort cable stop set, and marine grade stainless steel bolts.
• The Definition frameset is £895. The frame is Dedacciai aluminium. The fork and all the other elements are the same as above.
• The Resolution will be available as complete bikes starting at £2,595 for a model with a Shimano 105 groupset and TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes. The wheels are Hunt x Mason across the board, as are Continental tyres. The saddle and bar tape come from Fabric.
• A Shimano Ultegra Di2 build with hydraulic disc brakes is £4,195; a mechanical Ultegra model is £3,195; and a 105 model with hydro/mechanical brakes is £2,895.
• The most expensive Resolution complete bike is £5,595. That one is built up with a Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset and hydraulic disc brakes.
• Complete Definitions start at £2,095 for a model with a Shimano 105 groupset and TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes.
• You get the same build options with the Definition as with the Resolution, prices running up to £4,995.
Here’s the geometry table for both bikes (yes, it's small!). As you can see, the 56cm model comes with a 561.1mm effective top tube and a 170mm head tube. The stack (the vertical distance from the middle of the bottom bracket to the top of the head tube) is 579.7mm and the reach (the horizontal distance between those two points) is 388.3mm.
The head angle is slack at 71.5° and the wheelbase is fairly long at 1019.7mm.
The Mason Cycles website is currently a holding page. The finished website is due to go live before the end of this month.

As a Marxist/Leninist/Fascist/Neo-contrapuntalist, I wish to complain at your cancel culture.
But it rather depends on identifiying the suspect, and how would they do that?
No worries. In NFBUK world shared paths will be banned, so that goes away and you are back in the road .
