Lou,

It is my understanding that both Faliero and Colnago worked for the Gloria Bicycle Co. in Italy. I assume considering the differences in age that it would have been at different times. Perhaps that information morphed into Colnago worked for Masi. It's not anywhere near impossible, but I'd never heard that Colnago built frames for Masi. I suppose all it would take is for someone (Brett Horton maybe) to ask Ernesto that question. Knowing Ernesto just a little bit, that might be a "sensitive" question, although it's obvious who's on top now.

I would be interested in learning the early history of the Colnago company. I'm sure the information is available.
