A History of Masi

Masi, or Masi cicli, was founded by Faliero Masi in 1949. Faliero Masi had been a professional cyclist since the 1930s and throughout his competitive career he had accumulated an array of knowledge about steel bicycles and their properties as racing machines.

 

Faliero had his own way of fitting racing bikes to their riders, becoming known as 'the tailor'. He built bikes for both Jacques Anquetil and Fausto Coppi, but as the popularity of the Masi brand grew, many professional racers had already signed contracts with other companies. This, unfortunately, meant that Masi bicycles were not in as much demand as Faliero had initially hoped for.

Information about Grandis

The Grandis bicycle brand was founded in 1930 when Silvino Grandis built his first bicycle. Silvino was quickly becoming an expert in this field and in 1957 he worked as the official mechanic of the 'Veneto A' Team. Whilst working as their official mechanic, Silvino witnessed the victory of his athlete Mina Bariviera in the amateur Giro d'Italia. As Grandis gathered more and more expertise in the cycling sphere, he began to make bikes to sell. Grandis continued to grow as a brand as the cycling technology developed. Today the brand makes both road bikes and mountain bikes.
