EXTRA! EXTRA! Read All About It!


The Masiguy is featured in the September 27th edition of the New York Times! I thought you would all want to know.

They missed the inside joke though: It's "dyed in the wool jersey". Duh! (I miss my husband and I guess it's making me a little snarky). He's in Vegas right now, hanging out with his dudes and he couldn't post the info himself. Never one to blow his own horn, draw attention to himself or be conspicuous in any way, the shy and retiring Masiguy didn't mention this massive piece of fame before he left for the Trade Show. But I KNEW YOU'D WANT TO KNOW, you loyal fans and supportive cyber-friends. That's why I hacked into his computer and posted this message. Do you think he will be mad? I mean, like really mad?

Nice article. Working for a bike company, writing a 'employer approved' blog, and now a NYT profile. What will you do for an encore!

I happen to be in NYC and was present when the Times released Masiguy yesterday.

I can tell you the lobby of the Grand Hyatt was buzzing about it.

Which was great for me because I could chat with folks and drop casually, "Yep, I know the Masiguy".

Us "Iowa boys" have got to take bragging rights whenever we can.

Congrats Tim. Thanks for taking a chance to inform us all MasiWife!

Masiwife - we need you in Vegas next year! Tim's been glowing here at Interbike ever since this came out. Thanks for letting us all know!!! Hope you bought lots of copies for his 'fans'. :)
PS - he misses you, too.

Love the article in the NYTimes. I wouldn't have know about you otherwise. I have passed it on to many of my cycling friends. I've just written a children's story about bike riding for kids who feel that they don't "fit in". I'll include a link to your blog - it will surely inspire them. CT

Margaret;

FYI - he was super extatic. Don't let him fool you . . . you can blow his horn and he likes it! And if he acts mad, he's lying.
