Friday News

I posted this over on my own blog as well as the new Masi Friends, Fans and Owners page on Facebook, but thought I'd share it here too...

We are in the early stages of finally developing new Masi clothing. Yes, you read that right- there WILL be new Masi clothing before the start of the next century. Once artwork is completed and approved, I will post it here and elsewhere for all to see. I am hoping... HOPING... to have the artwork done by the end of January so that we can hopefully see delivery of the clothing around the April time frame.

Here's the plan;
  • There will be one "Team Masi" kit of jersey and bib short. This will have a retro-themed race look to it.
  • There will be one full-retro jersey. This will have a totally retro/ vintage look and feel to it.
  • There might be a matching "Team Masi" vest or jacket/ wind shell- if there is enough demand for it.
  • Soon after the riding apparel is developed, we will also have a couple of t-shirt designs ready for you.
  • We're also looking at possibly doing a cycling cap, with very retro designing.
  • After much demand, we're also working on getting a few stickers done as well. Possibly a simplified version of the large dealer window decals we have done for years and then possibly just some simple "Masi" lettering stickers and small head badge artwork stickers.
It's been a long, long time in the making, but now that there is a break in the development process, there is finally the time to actually jump on these projects. As soon as we have more to share- we certainly will.

So now you can save all that money Santa leaves in your stocking and set it aside for some sweet Masi goodness!


(UPDATE- 12/21; there is now a poll up on my blog to vote for your preferred article/s of clothing... so go make your voice heard!)

If not too late, please see if the full-retro jersey can be made available with 100% merino wool. I feel that the quality of your bikes can be honored by the fabric you choose. A simple jersey design primarily in red and/or green would be fabuous with a neutral stripe across either the arm or chest. A short but ideally a long sleeve would be the go! Would love the cap to go with it too - great idea.
