    this had a similar effect, but it wasn't tears that were the fluid that was streaming.

    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.

    you're right, let me correct myself:

    people tarckin' out any frame whatsoever has nothing to do with who makes them

    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.
