Nope...never heard of it until now, and I wish I did. I'd have to do some building, since SRAM brakes are garbage. But, hey, that's half the fun of a new bike, rebuilding it!

Pretty nice looking bike. I have always wondered where the Fezzari name came from. It's like Snoop Dog trying to say Ferrari.

I wasn't able to sort where the name Fezzari came from?

They’ve been around for a few years now. I remember hearing them being advertised on podcasts long before Canyon was available in the US. To me it’s a fake exotic Italian sounding name like Frappuccino.

Or Tomasso, a play on Tom Eason's first name who owned Ten Speed Drive Imports. However, in the old days, they were actually made in Italy and shipped over. Another brand that sticks out in my mind like this is Quattro Assi (Texas). Been done to death.

Nishiki, Azuki, Lotus, etc- all US brands with Japanese sounding names.
Nothing new.
