Speaking of Masi history (and because the world can always use another Masi thread) does anyone out there know what year the LAST Gran Criterium was produced at San Marcos? I have a 1998 that was built there (according to Jim Allen). I also have 96 and 97 Torelli catalogs which by then describe the GC as a US-painted Italian import.
I hope you don't consider this too far off-topic... I'd just really like to know the R.I.P. date for what some folks consider one of the nicest US 'production' frames.
