Subject: Re: [CR]interesting advert on CR... Chesini
"For those that don't know the Chesini brand from Verona, it had a very good reputation in Italy in the 80's and was often favorably compared to Colnago. I don't believe they ever exported much so are comparatively unknown outside of Italy."
Not so at all. The firm is well known in many parts of Europe and is still producing today. It is only in the U.S. where it is all but unknown, owing to the lack of an importer/distributor.
