    LEADER or MASI??

    Hi There, well to be honest with you im not too happy withy my Leader, too much noise, dont feel that solid on this bike, the geometry may be a little off for me. I have a 2009 735 TR w a carbon fork, I have a chance to trade for a MASI Coltelo both pictures are attached which would you choose and why??

    aero frames and risers seem so counter-intuitive to me. but I would go MASI all the way.

    MASI bikes are quite nice, I have one and I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend it. That said, it has to be pointed out that the current line of MASI bikes are in no way related to the MASI of old that has a strong cycling heritage. Another manufacturer simply bought the name

    Not making any comment about either of those bikes, but comparing Masi to Leader is like Cadillac to Geo. Leaders suck.

    I'm surprised so many Leader owners complaining about their bikes. Trying to steer my friend that wanted a raw 725TR to a different direction.

    gah, my friend has an aerospoke, when people say that it's heavy, it's no exaggeration. i thought my hed3 on my road bike was hefty, but wow. it feels like the weight of a full wheelset crammed into one wheel. the one i tried was a front, so i don't know how that would be compared to a rear, but it felt stiff and once going had good momentum. killed steering response though, and it was still ponderously heavy.

    not a fan of either the masi nor the leader. i mean, if i had a choice between the two at the same price, i'd go masi. but then i'd sell the spok for a used phil wheelset, and probably sell the frame and add a hundred or so for some vivalo, samson, etc.

    and don't compare this masi to the legendary italian brand. that would be like comparing BD merciers to the mercier of old. decent bike, but totally disconnected from the heritage.
