     Brian Baylis has seen many changes in the bicycle business. Despite fad after fad, he has maintained a refined, traditional direction and his work has always represented the highest standard available. Brian began his frame building career with the startup of Masi USA in 1973.
     After Masi, he and partner Mike Howard operated Wizard bicycles for a few years. From that time Brian has been on his own; building, painting and restoring special bicycles.

Visit to Brian's workshop, Jan. 2000
Brian  was building a special track bike for himself...
The Nervex Pro lugs had extensions added and were subtly
reshaped to give a French style flair but all-Baylis style.
