Hmmm. Maybe I spoke too quickly.

Performance COULD have bought up a batch of the old allegedly Mondonico-made Masis that Schwinn was trying to sell. I guess that goes back maybe two-three years ago (Jim Allen sure could tell us!) when Schwinn had the distribution rights to Masi.

I saw a number of those frames and (sorry) was "underwhelmed" Finish and construction details were slapdash in my opinion, obviously made to a price, so to speak... And definitely a huge step down in refinement from previous USA Masi and even Alfredo supplied bikes.
