Mason Cycles now available at Bespoke
We've been working on getting Mason in store for some months and they're finally here. As soon as we saw this new British brand we were impressed. Great design, passion, innovation.
The M∆SON brand stands for progressive, forward thinking design, grounded in the needs of real riders & using the finest craftsmen, materials & componentry.
The reviews have been fantastic, and with good reason. These are perfectly designed for British riding: disc brake only, metal, mudguards, wide tyre clearance. We also love the frames can be built up with top end components and still come in at an affordable price, allowing a lot more people to get into the joys of putting together a custom build. For mechanical Ultegra with hydraulic brakes, Fizik finishing kit, Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc wheelset and mudguards you are looking at just over £3,000, a very realistic proposition for such a well specced all rounder.
The Definition frame set uses lightweight, Premium Dedacciai aluminium tubing to provide a responsive and engaging ride.
The Dedacciai aluminium frame is a super efficient pedalling and power transmission machine. Low weight, straighter stays and large diameter down tube give it a punchy and responsive ride. It has more of a race-bike feel, although it still retains a beautiful ride quality because of the advanced tubing, custom BoatTail stays, advanced taper steerer Aperture carbon fork and of course the capacity for larger tyres. The lower price of aluminium technology also allows you to spend more on the build kit, letting you build the bike you want for less. The huge success of bikes like the Cannondale CAAD10, now the CAAD12, and the Trek Emonda ALR prove that aluminium is now more of a force to be reckoned with than ever before.
The Definition sums up to me exactly what I think cycling is all about. It’s not just about price, weight or components, it’s about the whole package. Delivering a ride that thrills though relaxes too and every time you look down and see that deep paintjob in the sun it makes you glad you went out. It makes you feel special like you haven’t got a care in the world.
Production bike with bespoke feel and wonderful, inspiring, addictive ride.
Frame and Fork 10/10.

The Resolution is a steel frame with Mason's custom carbon fork, disc specific with clever routing options. Using classic Columbus steel tubing, the Resolution is also manufactured in Italy. The level of finish is stunning and the reviews have been superb.
Step forward the beautifully designed, high-performance Resolution from Mason. An outstanding bike that combines all weather utility and confidence with multi-option future-proofing and seals the deal with a rewardingly responsive ride.
Beautiful blend of buoyantly responsive ride, surefooted control and next level detailing.
Utterly practical all-rounder you’ll still be begging to ride all weekend.
VERDICT: All weather confidence, all purpose utility and ultra detailed style.
4.5/5 stars. - Cycling Plus
Wide clearance, clever mudguard mounts, rack mounts and exquisite design make this a modern steel road bike that you'll want to ride everyday and can afford to build up with high spec components.
We currently have the Definition on display in store and the Resolution is expected mid-January. See more on this great brand here .
