    Thanks for mentioning us! We’re obviously pretty stoked on it… d’uh.

    Here’s the good news; it’s already in stock! RUN… do not walk… to your nearest retailer and tell’em to get your bike ordered! ;-)

    Seriously, thanks for the support.

    Love it. Of course, if I were to buy one, I would immediately be into it to go silver seatpost, stem, spacers, tan gum rubber “Hudz” and some white perforated leather bar tape.

    If I were in the market for a new road bike, this is likely the one that I would get. Like Matt, I would dispose of all those unsightly black components and go “classic.”

    I want to see what they’ve done to the ‘Randonneur’: last year’s model was just not quite there for randonneuring, or commuting. Hoping for a wee bit more fender room and wiser gearing.

    Really nice! Smart move equipping with the more afforadable Tiagra groupo

    Holy crap. Been on Masi’s facebook page and apparently they scanned my brain while planning 2011 bikes. Get the full specs on your website!

    [...] 2011 Masi Speciale This is the coolest bike I found after starting to search for one in earnest. There are some custom / by hand frame builders that put together some fantastic stuff, but those are *way* outta my price range. Got it under MSRP since it is an older model, but I’ll still be paying for it for a while. These things is expensive. [...]
