After dominating the Euro and US race scenes and establishing itself as a bike with an untouchable pedigree, the Masi Gran Criterium went on to become Masi's flagship steel road bike—an icon of classic Italian design. Columbus Cromor tubing offers the unbeatable ride of steel, and the narrow tubes and chrome lugs ensure that this bike is a head turner. Weinmann rims and skin-wall Clement Strada tires pair performance and aesthetics, and Campagnolo's Potenza drivetrain components need no introduction, well-known for impeccable shifting performance and representing yet another nod to Masi's Italian racing history. High-polish Ritchey components and classic saddle add the final touch to this rideable art piece.

I ride my gorgeous gran crit hard every day, like it should be ridden. She takes me farther and faster every new day of riding. It is a beautiful, well made bike, the lugwork is excellent, the 105 components are all performing flawlessly, and the ride is old school-get up out of the saddle, early and often, and she springs to life. Ride this bike hard-you'll know what I mean. You'll know you've arrived at Masi Heaven when you constantly have a huge smile on your face!
very cool ride. I had the same purple people eater the late 80s early 90s & really missed it. you won't be sorry. this bike is sweet!
