    What do we know about Simo bicycles?

    Know a bit about Gian Simonetti and the Masi connection. Was he a builder for Medici or did Mike Howard aka the "hair bandit" build all the frames and later the Simonetti/Simo ones too?
    Thanks in advance. Just bought htis one for $350. Full Campy with Tange Prestige too.

    While I could answer this, I won't due to the way you framed your question.

    You probably won't like the way I've framed this one either.

    What's your problem?

When you are hobbled and on your death bed, have the bike brought from the wall in your house to the wall in your hospital room. Imagine those visions are actual real memories. Or ride the thing.

    When Mr. Howard became unavailable, the production stopped.
