The day has finally arrived! After a three month wait I've got my paws on my new Sarto Dinamica. I chose a geometry very close to my 2007 Derosa King- it's a size 60- 58.5cm top tube-I know this is weight weenies and I could have chosen a lighter frame but I went for stiffness and ride quality on this build. The frame, without seat post collar, came in at 1020 grams. I don't think that's awful for a frame that big but I had hoped to be bellow 1000 grams. I forgot to weigh the fork ( by the way the inside of the fork is painted pink as well, matte carbon on the outside- no photo's). I'm really happy with the way the stem turned out- I love the way a painted stem can really bring a bicycle together. The paint is absolutely lovely, thick (!!!) and highly glossy, yum!

I've got everything sorted on this except the wheels. I'm debating between the Campy Hyperon One or a set of Enve 25's laced to Chris King hubs- I live and ride in the San Francisco Bay Area. It's exceptionally windy here this time of year, I'm being blown all over the roads with my current Enve 45's and want to try a shallower profile. Maybe the Enve 3.4's? Any thoughts would be appreciated!


One last item- Grey or black bar tape? (saddle and tires are going to be black)

WOW.....that is beautiful. I would personally do the 3.4 since they just look so damn fine.

EDIT: I may be in the minority, but I would do a Deda post painted pink to match the theme began with the stem.......

Black tape. And wouldn't mind knowing if gum sidewall tyres look ok in it.

Otherwise this is one fine looking frame.

One of those few bikes that really, really get me stoked. I can't wait to see it build and your (undoubtedly glowing) ride reports.

Thanks for all the kind words- I've learned a lot on this forum and appreciate the feedback! Gum walls might look really cool- hadn't thought of that!

Evidently my lbs found a matte deda carbon post which sounds great!

I'm still vacillating between a set of hyperon ones and enve 3.4. I've been doing a lot of climbing and really enjoying it, perhaps the hyperons.

Sadly, I'm traveling for work and won't be able to see it built for several weeks. It's truly killing me!!!

I finally got a chance to get down to my LBS today to pick up my new ride. I couldn't be happier with the build! Matt, over at Red Lantern Cycles in Menlo Park California steered me expertly along the way ( all the while playing some freaky music, ya man)Thanks Matt!!!

I ended up going a very different direction with the wheels and choose the Campy Bora One 35 tubulars. What a dream they are! I only had a chance to ride it for a few short laps around town but am absolutely blown away by the ride quality!!! Stiff and smooth yet very, very responsive and lively feeling. Cornering is incredible, predictive and intuitive. It's a real smooth machine! I can't wait to log some serious miles!

I promise to shoot some better quality photo's some time soon but for now only have iPhone images to share.

Check out some photo's here:

Total weight came to 7.12 kilograms (15.7 pounds)

I hope you all enjoy the bike!
