In the Fall of '83 I first heard of Masi. By winter, I was making them. Though, I now know, not as real as Carlsbad Masis, certainly not as real as Real Italian Masis, but certainly more real than Haro Masis. And, maybe even more real, Faliero-wise real, than aluminized, carbon-fiberized, Real Italian Masis? I dunno. Joe Starck Masidon, Wisconsin
