Ciao from Carlsbad, CA!

My name is Terah. Ive been lurking for a couple years now and figured its time I introduced myself. I spent the last few years in grad school and now I look forward to improving my form, power, and stamina on the bike. Im currently riding 100+ base miles during the week in an effort to ride my first century at a good clip - or at least keep my bfs wheel on our weekend rides. Id love to meet local riders for small group rides.

I ride a red and yellow vintage steel Masi and I often wear a dayglow orange helmet. If you see me out on the road, please say hi.

- Terah, in Carlsbad, CA

Is it a Carlsbad Masi? If so, visit Chuck at Pacific Coast Cycles in Oceanside. He might have built it.

Thank you banana rat and GrumpyPig. I have met Chuck at Pacific Coast Cycles - he certainly knows his vintage bikes. Here's a better pic of my bike. I believe it was made in Carlsbad as the Cyclart folks rechromed my fork for me and suspected it was made in Carlsbad. My bf has a 1984 Masi Gran Criterium but my Masi is prettier.

Welcome to Bike Forums. Nice ride.
You can meet other So Cal riders in the Southern California Regional subforum. Have fun.

Are you Chris' GF? I saw you two south of Tamarack one day and thought that was his bike you were riding.
