Are Mason bikes any good?

The Mason Definition2 is simply a superb machine, crafted with attention-to-detail to give a ride sensation that almost defies logic. It’s lively yet relaxed, delicate yet you’d take it anywhere, and is just really fun to ride. I’d never get bored of it, and it puts any other alloy bike I’ve ridden firmly in the shade.

Can you put thicker tires on a road bike?

Remember that larger tires are both wider and stick out more from the wheel. On a road bike, odds are high that you can put a slightly larger (say, go from 25mm to 30mm) tire but not a hugely larger tire. If you want to make a big jump you probably also want to get wheels with a wider rim.

Where are Mason bikes made?

Mason Cycles produces three metal framesets, designed at the company’s headquarters just outside of Brighton, UK, which are built by artisan, small batch frame builders in Italy. The company’s initial raison d’ĂȘtre, producing the ultimate four-season super commuter, has developed into something far beyond this.

How much does a Mason definition weight?

At 8.5kg, the Definition is some 800g lighter than the steel Resolution which we tested a couple of years back. So it’s that much quicker off the mark and when climbing, although it shares the same geometry. But the alloy frame gives a more lively ride, rather than the Resolution’s more relaxed feel.
