Another connection. The original Masciaghi Coppi frames were all designed by Giovanni Pelizzoli, the maestro builder of Ciocc. Giovanni was also an apprentice of Ugo DeRosa prior to Ciocc. wrote:So, I ask a question and Steven rightfully answers my question with a quote from my OWN guide!! To give credit where credit is due, I gave Steven a copy of the guide last September when we got together in Princeton, NJ. He generously edited it for me, particularly the Italian framebuilders, and his update provided the answer that Fiorelli made the early Coppi frames and Masciaghi made them after 1994. I have now corrected the copy to provide the cross-reference to Fiorelli under Coppi rather than only having it listed under Fiorelli. Thanks Steven. Glad we didn't have a DS award this year.....Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
