I stopped in today to grab a few things and there sat a 2013 Sarto Classica in a size med. What a class act that bike is.
I talked to the owners and it is one of their demo rides. So having some Shoes and riding gear in the trunk it was my time to demo this beauty. I did a 25 mile ride over a combination of road types and surfaces as well as some small hills. One of the best riding bikes that I have put my butt on. Geo. that is all me as well as the great balanced ride and handling.
Tube to tube construction and hand built it Italy. Does it get much better than that?
The generous discount being a demo was an added bonus as well as icing on the cake.
Needless to say it will be stripped down and built up with my parts next week.
I am a fan of classic style bikes so the with horz. TT at 545mm CtC and a 160mm HT it felt like it was built for me.
I will get some pics up once I pick it up next week.
Man am I stoked. I will be picking up two bikes next week. The custom Ti Desalvo and the Sorto Classica.
So between the custom Ti Desalvo and the Sarto Classica I will be good for the next few years.
These may not be the lightest or most advanced or the latest technology but they fit me and my riding style to a T. And the Sarto has a lifetime warranty to go with the bike.

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
There is more info on Sarto here:

They have had some problems with their previous US distributor and there are ongoing legal disputes over the US ownership of the SARTO name. The correct website is: www.sartoantonio.com
Enjoy your bike, it may be the best frame you ever own.

The sartoantonio.com site listed above shows the new frames (or simply re-named frames?) - but no Classica model.
This site: http://www.sartocycles.com/en_US/our-cu ... odels.html shows many more models (older, I believe) - including the Classica.
Can't wait to see this build!
I too have a Sarto coming in the coming weeks ( fingers crossed, you know those Italians are always late). I ordered a custom Dinamica, level top tube, reinforced chainstays to support my 6'2 frame, bold color design/layout with matching stem! It'll be dressed in a mix of Campy Record/Chorus and some Enve 45's....a dream bike!!!! I'll certainly start a thread for it once it comes in!
Enjoy that new ride and do post some pics when you get a chance!
