I'm thinking that there was a bit of buzz around these around the early-mid 2000's, if my ailing memory serves :). People seem to lump them in with modern mid/upper-tier bikes such as Boardman, Cube, Focus, etc...

It should build into a lovely serviceable trail ride. I look forward to seeing it in all it's two-wheeled glory :D.

Personally I think of them as a bit more interesting than that, not that there's anything wrong with any you've mentioned of course. Maybe just because you don't see so many of them and I'm a sucker for an Italian name :oops:

:lol:

They do some really stunning top end Carbon MTB frames in bare carbon, Sub 3 pounds.
Think they were one of the first to develop vacuum formed carbon frames. Well known on the Continent, very few UK importers.

They're used to be a Massi shop in Nottingham, just down from the ice stadium, probably around 2002-2004. Sold road and mtb, plus all there own branded clothing and accessories. Good bikes.
