It's been more of an evolution rather than revolution for Mason to arrive at a new Resolution... and that Resolution in this video is the brand new Resolution2 with Columbus steel tubing, a Sram Red eTap groupset, Hunt wheels and Deda finishing kit.
The bike in the video had actually just been freshly built for a customer at Mason's Brighton HQ. Like their Definition aluminium frame the Resolution has now got 12mm thru-axles and flat mount disc calipers front and rear for the new version, for which Mason worked painstakingly with Bear Frame Supplies to make a rear dropout that would work for this specific bike. Many 3D printed prototypes later Mason and Bear arrived at a solution, and you can see the quality of the work in the video.
As with all Mason frames the Resolution2 is built up in a small Italian factory, and as Dom says in the video, the bike is now pretty much everything he envisioned it would be when Mason was founded in 2014; where do they go from here, we wonder?
We'll be looking to test the Resolution2 soon, so keep your eyes peeled for a full review in the coming months...
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
