Subject: [CR]Rodney Dangerfield's Frame


I have been contemplating this for a couple weeks while cleaning and getting to original a 77' Gios. You know the one DeVlaminck rode (Chrome fork sans coins). The question is this. How can a frame that has won 4 Paris Roubaix's "Get no respect"?

I know there is a select bunch of us out there that think the Gios ride wonderfully. Why does this frame not have the mojo that let say the all discussed and over talked about Masi (I own 4 Masis), Pogliaghi or Bianchi,,etc does?

I believe there others builders in this "no respect" catagory. In the lists opinion who are these frame builders and why.

Looking for a lively debate.
