Anybody own one?

I am interested in a Sportif Classic as an all weather bike. I want something quite classic looking in steel with mudguard eyelets, 1, 1/8 forks and a racy geometry.

They aren't cheap, but are they any good?

What's the build quality and ride quality like? Some pictures make the welds look quite clumsy.

Anything else out there that you have bought having consdered one?

I've only seen and heard good things about them (lugged models)...a bit more timeless than the current plastic frames about atm...
