Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Brand snobs.

As long as the frame rides how you like it, fits you, and the welds hold up, who gives a cr@p where it's made?

Glad you liked my bike. It wasn't a "real" Masi though. It was one of those fake Taiwanese/USA collaborations

Sold it now though.

everytime I see don's Masi, I LOL.

What's your new frame? You should trade one of those spinergy rims and just have on on your bike. I think two aerospokees/hed3/spinergy wheels on any bike looks bad.

Who designs the Haro Masis? I'm sure someone who knows road bikes does them. At least I hope so.

Funny enough, the "best" Masis were those built here in the US in the late 70's/early 80's. The guys that were hired to build those are now famous custom builders in their own right.

Nah, I sold the whole lot. I couldn't park in the bike park places in Tokyo because of the deep rims. The bike parks have a pair of clamps that lock around the rim of the front wheel. Can't use it with deep section carbonara wheels. I got fed up and wanted something a bit more practical. So I sold it all for 150,000 and bought a Fuji Track Comp from the states for 70,000 including shipping to Tokyo. That was the bike I wanted originally but I couldn't buy it in Japan.

Eventually I might get a Keirin frame, but I might just save my 円 for a new DH bike and try to not throw money at the bastardized USA owned/built in Taiwan Fuji.
