Masi SoulVille 3 speed on USA Network's Monk

Got word this evening from a Masi SoulVille 3 speed owner, Richard Suits, pointing out that he and his family witnessed a SoulVille 3 speed on the hit TV series Monk.

Thank you to Richard for the heads up and thanks to USA Networks and whoever is in control of their prop procurement for selecting a SoulVille 3 speed. Even with the frame artwork covered, you can still see the head badge and the look is unmistakably a SoulVille 3 speed.

You can see the episode, Mr. Monk on Wheels, right here. It's right in the beginning of the episode. Beautiful!

SoulVille 3 Speed

The SoulVille 3 speed is a thing of beauty; it's the less expensive, but no less functional and enjoyable cousin of the original SoulVille (7 speed).The 3 Speed uses the very same double butted chromoly steel frame and fork as the more expensive SoulVille models, but uses a SRAM 3 speed internal hub with simple and functional coaster brake. The padded button saddle has all the style points of the leather saddle used on the 7 speed model and the natural cork grips have an exceptional feel in your hand.

It's not surprising that the SoulVille family has been so popular and now that we finally have some stock in the 3 speed model, you can finally get your hands on one! Visit your Masi retailer for a test ride or place an order... you won't be sorry you did.

Speciale CX

It's always nice when we get a little love for the products we love too;

Obviously, we're a bit biased, but we certainly think that the guys at Urban Velo are on to something when they say, "the bottom line is, you get what you pay for and this bike strikes a good balance between 'want' and 'need.' "

The Speciale CX has been one of our best selling bikes since we brought it out 2 years ago. Jeff brings up all the reasons why in his brief analysis of the bike.

If you're looking for a good "do it all" bike that won't break the bank and offers style points to match the value, then look no further than the Speciale CX.

Thanks again to the guys at Urban Velo for the nice mention. (The check's in the mail Jeff... and maybe even a CX to test.)
