Brand Information(click to expand)
 Founded by Faliero Masi, the Masi name is one of the most well known names in Italian frame builders.  Masi's were built in Italy up through 1972 when  Faliero Masi and several of his best builders moved to California (Carlsbad) and resumed building there.  Frames built in Carlsbad were build by a number of different builders, starting with Mario Confrente who moved from Italy with Faliero, later names such as Albert Eisentraut did frame building work at Masi.

For all the changes in builders and location over the years, all Masi's are known to be beautiful frames which have an exceptional ride.  And for these reasons and others they command a high price on the market.
