(All images via Masi)
When I was browsing the Masi website today I was impressed to see that they used women in many of their pictures. In fact I saw more pictures of female models than male models! These pictures were so great I couldn't use just one.
These pictures feature the steel single speed/fixed gear Speciale Commuter. I love the bike but I worry that even the shortest (49) might be a bit tall for me. My boyfriend rides the Speciale Fixed which is a very similar bike but is geared higher and may have a bit more of a track geometry (this part I'm not sure about).
I think it's pretty cool that a hard core bike company like Masi chose to use women in their promotional pictures. And what makes it extra great is that they are real-looking women wearing normal clothes and that the Speciale Commuter is not a women's specific bike. Kudos, Masi!!!
If you've never ridden a Masi I suggest you find your LBS that carries them and go test ride one. They are SWEET!
(P.S. Don't you just love her t-shirt in that last picture? Where do I get one of those?)
