We have 3 2009 Masi Speciale Randonneur's (this link will take you to the actual e-mail I sent Masi after riding the bike in a 300+ mile gravel race (picture below)) available at a great price. Yes I bought my bike from Tom (actually Charlie worked with me on it and Tom wrapped up the final fit and sale). I remember taking it out for a quick spin up and down the side road and came right back and Charlie thought something was wrong but I told him to wrap it up. The first of many great purchases from Tom!

What I will say about this bike, first and foremost, is that I would switch the bar end shifters out for either Shimano or SRAM 10 speed shifters. On my bike tour the following year I had issues and Tom sent me a set of Shimano barcons to have installed and they worked like a charm for many miles. I eventually sold the bike after 4000 or so miles and I am sure he is still enjoying it to this day. Other than that I have no issues with this bike at all. It took on all types of riding and road conditions and persevered and that is the most important aspect of any bike - faith that it will get you to your location without any issues - especially for work or touring!
A month or so ago a customer came in with his wife's Masi and it sure brought back a flood of memories. We talked about how great the bike is and his touring that he had done and was planning on doing in the future on this bike!
