    My new Masi and I went for 22 miles today!!

    It was her maiden ride I'm so pumped! Had to make some minor tweaks when I got home, but in all I'm psyched. She's light, fast, and looks frickin awesome, even when sitting still. Can't wait to rack on the miles.

    looks pretty nice! Are those Ritchey rims/wheels? I like the red SRAM hoods, black brake levers, and white shifters. Tasteful use of colors. Great choice!

    Thanks! It truly is a great looking bike. Yup, Ritchey rims and Kenda tires.

    Congrats on the new bike and yup, it looks great! As does that car she's leaning up against.

    Whitewall tires! On the car that is...nice.

    Agree with the others, and it's obvious...that's a nice looking bike. I would prefer black hoods, but hey that's why you're you and I'm me. Enjoy.

    Thanks all! That is my other baby; my 64 Cadillac Deville. She's sitting a bit high in that pic. She's usually on the ground when parked. 4" Coker white walls....so gangster

    Nice bike and car. Almost thought someone was sitting in the car, but was your reflection.

    Nice bike! I just purchased a Masi 2011 Evoluzione Apex. So I guess the year before yours. They all seem to have a nice paint job on them. The price was right and I got Time Iclic2 Carbon pedals thrown in too.

    Awesome! I've got about 56 miles so far and so happy with it.

    Did a nice 27km ride today around the park by my house. Still trying to get used to clipping in and out of the pedals. I figure I should learn how to do that before venturing into the busy streets.

    Thats the 2011 version that I have... Masi does a slick job on painting these things. They look great for sure.

    Man I do wish I had black bar tape though. White isn't so good for keeping clean. Gonna have to replace mine before long.

    If you ride with gloves [highly recommended] I use Fizik from bikestiresdirect.com. I can get an entire season out of the tape without issues.

    and did you expect to take a picture of your new Masi without anyone noticing that spectacular '64 low boy? Brilliant ride. Both of them.

    best of luck

    Good lookin out! I'll check out the tape. My girl isn't even that low in that pic either. She's normally about an inch off the ground. Thanks for the compliments

    The trend to have lots of white on bikes annoys me. Mostly because it means that now that I have another saddle I like, every time I find it cheap, it's also white. Doesn't look so good after some winter riding...

    IMO, racing bikes should be bright colors. They're racing bikes, not ghost bikes and not weapons. (The black trend annoys me too.) They should shout; hopefully even be recognizable as a specific person's bike from a distance.

    FWIW, I completely agree on white bar tape, but break on the stealth (black) trend.

    As you've often said, race bikes aren't always raced (mine aren't), so there's little need to 'shout' or be recognized (on road, bright colored jerseys do that). And although they aren't weapons, neither are sports cars (well, that's not their primary use), but IMHO many look very cool coated in black.

    Here's one example recently posted in the Spec forum you're sure to dislike. I love it!

    (Sorry for straying off-topic, OP).

    LOL, I mostly dislike black for sports cars too. Although the primer black Miata with hood latches and a roll bar makes a pretty cool statement.

    And no problem with it on a touring/training/commuting bike. Black also has the advantage that whatever team kit someone has, it won't clash.
