Best source for Masi framesets online?

I did a quick search and couldn't come up with answer, sorry if I've missed a thread on this

I'm looking to buy a Masi Speciale Sprint frameset, and wondering if anyone has good experience with an online source that sells them? It seems us canucks are not worthy as the frameset is not available in Canada Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance!

OK, I'll ask another question.

Has anyone had good experience with the following online shops:

paintcreekbicycles.com
centurycycles.com

I work and in a shop in Canada and had priced out that frame for myself earlier this summer, it was available to me at that time. Who said it's not available here? You may need to change dealers?

PM me as a reminder and I'll check into for you when I get back to work on Tuesday, I've just emailed the Masi rep for clarification.

Since you're in Toronto, you might as well check out Urbane Cyclist downtown which stocks Masi. I know they can order frames.

I went to Urbane Cycle (downtown Toronto) and they called the Masi distributor, and they said the frameset is not available in Canada!

If you can get one for me, I'd really appreciate it

Sending you a PM.

See above, it was Urbane that told me the frameset was not available!

I work for them!

We're a 3 store local shop that happens to do online stuff.

As far as shipping to Canada and stuff, give us a call at 1-800-201-7433 and see what's up.

I do a lot of shopping at Century. They're really nice people in person. I can't say for sure about their online shipping. If you call them, use the Medina store. They have a pretty big selection in the showroom and most of the staff is knowledgeable. Good luck
