agreed. when i wasn't the age i am now, i remember staring at race pics of the petterssons and noticed the decal, "Brevetatta" or similar on their blue frame's chainstays, a mark seen on the early 'non-fluted' chainstays of the masi frames of the era. btw, didn't the 4 brothers medal at mexico in the 4-man 100k time trial? e-RICHIE chester, ct
