I love it! It's really beautiful, although in some ways it's just another beautifully built Italian bicycle. But I don't mean that in any sort of pejorative sense. Rather, it makes you wonder why some of those frames receive so many accolades while other bikes - which deserve equal merit - are ignored.
In any event, beyond the more obvious reasons to appreciate
these bicycles, their history is interesting and make the bikes
that much more appealing. (And I love the way "Faliberto
Maasi" on the top tube is rendered in the same style as
"Faliero Masi" on those other bikes.)
