Driving to Guard drill this morning in sunny Fargo, ND, I saw a number of luckier guys riding downtown to Island Park cycles to meet up for the Sunday morning ride. After identifying a number of modern fat tubed machines, I sorta of stopped paying attention. So, I wasn't able to ID the vintage looking orange skinny tubed machine that I saw out of the corner of my eye.

Four hours later, with me on the way to lunch, there was the orange bike again, heading home. A Masi. Classic decals, classic color, but don't ask me about the components. So, there's at least one vintage ride still in use up here on the tundra, going head to head with the fat tubed boys.

I did get out on my aero Behringer the evening before. Riding in the 25 mph headwind was a great wind tunnel test for the flat tubes. The Behringer is my dream come true bike for now.
