Mason Bokeh

Just finished this build and thought I’d share here. My first full build from scratch and quite a fun process. Mix of SRAM group, TRP Spyre brakes, Hope wheels and BB, Byway tires set up tubeless. Took it out for a little spin yesterday and I’m pretty impressed with how nice those big tires roll on pavement and gravel. First impression of the bike is quite positive. Will update with further rides if anyone is interested.

Nice build, thanks for sharing. The Mason bikes seem really nice but their website is awful, it's so verbose and all the images are on black backgrounds so you can't see any details. Nice to see how the frames look under light.

Looks great, very impressive. Keep us updated on how you like it.

It would seem that Mason is highly regarded in Europe, maybe meeting a need for performance within any genre but while not compromising practical features...like fenders in a rainy climate. I like the look of their Definition 2 also.

A buddy just bought a road Mason, he put campy hydro on it, nice wheels and has been very very happy.

Direct purchase from Mason was the only option I found when I looked into it a while ago. Seems fine since they communicate well and can deliver internationally.
How did you do it Awdwon?
