Resolution Ultegra Hydro

NOW SUPPLIED WITH  'Aperture2' Thru-Axle fork.

Full details and photographs on website soon. 

Dependable, durable and precise mechanical shifting teamed with powerful hydraulic braking. The lightweight cable action of Shimano’s excellent Ultegra shifters is really enhanced by the carefully thought out, smooth internal cable-runs of the Resolution frame. Our MultiPort adaptable routing system keeps the cables and hoses out of harms way through all seasons and makes uprating and cable changing easy. 

This is the bike for long, fast journeys with the comfort of steel and the efficiency of modern braking and shifting. A sublime combination.

Details

Our frame sets deserve the best components, so we put a great deal of thought into the mix of parts used for each bike build. Bars, stem and crankset are sized to match frame size choice, but we can sometimes make sizing adjustments at your request. We can also supply our complete bikes with 11/32 gearing options, please contact us to discuss this.

This page gives you some guidelines based on height, but these are only a starting point for a proper bike fitting. The dimensions show the extremes of useable frame size based on height.

Sizing chart

Fitting a bike to a rider is an important process, this information is a start to the process but it’s not really possible to give 100% accurate fitting instructions online.

Humans are odd shapes, each person’s physical dimensions: arm, torso, femur length, level of flexibility even skill level are very different. This means that there will invariably be different frame size requirements, even for people of the same height and inseam.

We are experienced in sizing and geometry, so of course we will be on the end of the phone or email to help and advise, but I would always recommend having a proper bike fit done before committing, especially if you feel like you may be between sizes.

We have specified bar width, stem length, and crank length to be the best fit for the majority of riders on each frame size, but we can sometimes make adjustments to this at your request. Please contact us for advice, or just let us know your sizing requirements in the comments box at the checkout page.

If you are between sizes, it’s probably best to go with the smaller size. It’s easier to make a smaller frame fit a little larger than vice versa.

EN Tested

All our frames and forks complete the brutal strength and fatigue testing to comply fully with EN regulations. They are pushed, pulled, dropped and twisted over 100,000 times and must survive without any damage before they can pass.

It's not law that frames and forks have to be tested to their limits like this, but our frames will always be tested in this way, so you can be sure that your MASON frame not only looks beautiful with a ride quality to match, but it is tough, safe and dependable too.

Multiport

Unique to MASON. Our frames use an adaptable, internal cable routing system. Developed by us to allow your Mason frame to be used with a combination of control systems and adapt and evolve with your requirements and riding styles. We are the first to bring this type of system to a performance steel frame. Interchangeable alloy parts allow five options:

1. Full cable outer. 2. Hydraulic Hose. 3. Split outer. 4. Electronic cable [e.g. Shimano Di2]. 5. Blank.

Taper Head Tubes

Our frames use modern 1-1/8” - 1.5” taper head tubes. Pioneered by composite frames, the taper head tube makes huge sense for metal frames too;

The large overall diameter provides a useful weld area. The fully integrated headset is light and has a very low stack-height. Large 1.5” lower bearing, mated to a tapered carbon fork steerer, spreads the load and gives flex-free braking and instant response to steering input.

Threaded Bottom Brackets

We choose a more traditional 68mm, BSA, threaded standard for our AdventureSport frames because we believe it gives greater durability and creak-free reliability over many miles. The threaded BB is easier to service using standard tools and you are more likely to find a replacement when adventuring far from home. A properly lubricated, threaded BB is also an ideal interface with a metal BB shell.

Hourglass Stays

We tried many shapes before settling on this one, the wall thickness tapers from top to base and the perfect ‘hourglass’ profile gives a sublime, smooth ride with the added spring of steel keeping things lively. We add a custom bend at the base to work with the disc-rotor and calliper.

Fork

Unique to MASON. This frame is fitted with our new 'Aperture2' 365g, Ø12mm thru-axle/flat-mount, monocoque carbon fork. Features: Mason F-Stop axle system including replaceable axle inserts and clockable axle, TrueTaper steerer, Internal Routing, Full mudguard clearance, space for 30mm tyres + 'guards, Custom layup UD carbon construction, discrete eyelets.

Columbus Tubing

This frame is constructed from a unique blend of Columbus Spirit and Life tubing. Hand Selected, custom shaped, seamless, progressive butted, fine grain, niobium doped and joined with perfect Tig welds.

27.2 Seat Post

Our oversize seat tubes don't house oversize seat posts. The large diameter seat tube helps the 'core-stability' of the frame but large, stiff seat posts don't help rider comfort. A 27.2mm post helps to dial out road-buzz and the smoother ride means you stay fresher for longer.

Stainless Steel Hanger and Wear Inserts

This frame uses high Chromium content, polished stainless steel gear-hanger and wear insert. The wear insert is more durable than standard steel and prevents wear to the dropout, your wheel stays secure and the part can be easily replaced. The hanger is stiff and accurate ensuring precise gear changes but is designed to fail under heavy impact, protecting your frame. It can also be easily replaced when worn or damaged.

Disc Brakes

This frame is designed for disc brakes. They work consistently in all conditions, pull up quicker in the wet, they don't grind your expensive rims into black sludge and in my experience they change the whole riding experience for the better, especially when coupled with modern disc-specific wheels and high-volume tyres. You’ll find yourself riding in a more confident, controlled, fluid and ultimately more efficient way.

InBoard Disc-Mount

The calliper is mounted on the chain stay, this allows us to use lighter more comfortable seat-stays and gives a flex free mounting for the post-mount components to be welded to. Mounting the brake on the chain stay also keeps it cleanly out of the way of rack and ‘guard stays.

Internal Routing

The cables, hoses and electronic shift control wires run through the frame tubes, guided by our Mason 'MultiPort' adaptable inserts. Interchangeable Internal routing keeps the control cabling away from road dirt and grime, helps avoid accidental damage, makes cleaning easy, de-clutters your bike and means you can adapt your bike easily to work with various shifting and braking methods.

Integrated Headset

Integrated, 41.8ø upper, 51.8ø lower, for taper head tube. Both bearings are ‘ACB’, meaning ‘Angular Contact Bearings’. The head-tube seat angle is 45º.

The headset drops into a tapered seat in the head tube and is tensioned using a headset tensioner within the fork steerer. Tensioning the headset centres it on the taper and prevents any play. The larger lower bearing allows a tapered steerer and larger crown. This gives sharper response, helps reduce flex under braking and spreads bearing load.

Essential Dimensions: Resolution/Definition

BRAKING

Rotor Size: The fork can take a 140 or 160mm rotor [using adaptor], if you are using Shimano IceTech rotors then 140mm rotors either end are fine. A 160 up front is best if you are using cable braking. 140mm is the maximum recommended diameter for the rear.

Calliper Type: Resolution/Definition frames are fitted with the flat-mount front (adaptable to post-mount with supplied adapter) and post-mount rear. There are no clearance issues with modern Shimano systems or mechanical systems such as ‘TRP Spyre’. Some bulky systems like the ‘TRP HyRd’ may have compatibility issues on smaller size frames.

NOTE: This frame is compatible with most modern disc-brake systems but may not be suitable for ALL brake callipers. Please check clearance before purchasing your braking system.

WHEELS

12mm Thru-axle Front / 10mm QR rear.
