Masi was popular at the SDCBS


Co-organizer of the San Diego Custom Bicycle Show Brian Baylis had a pretty big presence, and was one of the more popular builders of the show. At one time (actually at two times) Brian was a builder and foreman for Masi bikes. There were many Masi originals at the show (and even a few Confentes) and the yellow bike shown below is an example of taking the term “drilling for lightness” to the extreme (note: the drilling on this bike was not done by Brian).

If you’re wondering, the bike is actually not rideable, for all practical purposes (mainly due to the chain stay and seat post drilling).
