Massi Pro SL Twin-Sys review

Massi Pro SL Twin-Sys
Cycling Weekly Verdict

With more riders becoming savvy to the fact that a bike that fits properly will be faster than one that doesn't - regardless of the specification - Massi's bespoke bike building menu is good news for the, erm, masses. Being able to change the stem size, crank length and bar width without any additional outlay means that fit should never be an issue. Or at least it won't be for experienced riders who know what their preferred dimensions are. Massi's own-brand kit surprised us with its quality, but the Spanish firm has also sourced money-saving deals on popular brands such as Selle Italia and Fulcrum for those who prefer to stick with what they know. So, if you've been dreaming of building a bike to your own specification and have been weighing up different framesets and costing up different components, this could be a much more affordable reality.

You can trust Cycling Weekly. Our team of experts put in hard miles testing cycling tech and will always share honest, unbiased advice to help you choose. Find out more about how we test.

Not to be confused with Italian firm Masi, the Spanish sound-alike Massi has been making bikes since 1934, some 16 years longer than has its Italian counterpart.

Brief history lesson aside, what we have here is Massi's Pro SL. Essentially a frameset, it's a blank canvas for you to build on. Nothing new in that, you might think. But with Massi's approach to custom bikes for the masses, there is a slight difference.
