Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Opinions on Massi?

Hello, I'm in search of a bike. I live in Madrid and I'm finding it hard to get a hold a of a nice affordable road bike. This is going to be my first road bike and I would like to buy a decent bike I'm not going to regret later, but I also do not want to buy the "BEST". Anyways, the most affordable I have found are Massi. Can you guys comment on this bikes? My current choices are as follow:

Massi COMP TEAM CARBON XENON -> 860€
Massi MASTER ELITE XENON -> 697€
Massi MASTER MIX -> 538€

-Thanks

Lots of Masi threads. Just use the search function and I bet you will find what your looking for. I assume you mean Masi and not Massi though.

No, the OP is referring to another brand called Massi. I've test ridden a few Masis, I thought they were pretty nice, but Massi seems to be some other off-brand, didn't find much about it though after a cursory search. Weird, huh, I'd never heard of Massi before either.

Hi, this is my first post and I don't want to start a flame war or anything. But if you go to their page (http://www.casamasferrer.com/) and click on products->Bicycles you will see "Massi".

I guess there is an old Italian Masi brand and a newer Spanish Massi.

Thats a new one on me...Massi. My .02 is there are enough well known brands out there that there is no reason to turn to a small obscure company unless you are looking at Boutique bikes. Just my opinion..

Is the only bikes I have found in the 600€-800€ Range. I'm guessing they are more affordable, because they are made here.

Have seen saddles branded Massi. How do you know they are a small brand? Seems the Spanish are making some pretty nice bikes.

If they're made in Spain they'll be more expensive. The inexpensive ones are made in Asia.

I never said they were not nice bikes. Massi is a small player in a big big pond. They are apparently the 3rd largest bike builder in Spain so they are bigger a brand than most of us realize but they are still not a major player. I am sure the Massi would do everything the OP needs and I would be more concerned about the LBS he is buying from then the brand on the frame since he is apparently a new rider. A poor fitting bike will make even the nicest bike a terrible riding experience.
