Sneak Peak: Masi Caffe Racer Series

Earlier, we got a sneak peak of the Speciale commuter bike and now here’s a sneak peak of a couple more commuter rigs from the every expanding Masi line.

The Solo (single shot of espresso) is 9spd with 105 rear derailleur and the Doppio (double shot of espresso) is 10spd with Ultegra rear. Solo (white) has aluminum fork and the Doppio (black) has a carbon one. Both share the same aluminum frame with rack and fender mounts and an extended head tube for more up right riding, but the handling is very “road”, so it is quick and agile which is perfect for your commute.

The full specs and pictures are below, however I would like to point out the rack and fender mounts, compact crankset, toe straps, integrated seatpost taillight and reflective sidewall tires that all make these bikes very well thought out commuter rigs.
