From early 1978 until 2003 I was in Carlsbad, the next town South of Oceanside. I now run the shop as a one man (and part time wife, Gretchen) shop and I love what I'm doing. I recently bought back the Masi that was built for me when I worked at Masi. It had been in the hands of another for over 20 years. I'm glad to have it back but it is by no means my favorite bike. I thought it would be. Oh well.
