Just for accuracy: I didn't state that Faliero shaped some of the fork blades on the first California Masis, someone else on the list did. I never heard that before. Neither have I heard that Eddy Merckx said the Italian Masis were the only real Masis as someone else stated.

And I happen to love De Rosas... have owned a couple and am looking for another!
