What do you guys think of this bike? Is it really that good quality being made by Sarto, therefore worth the price?

I hope you have noticed that it's got tubulars...

Looks a bit ugly for 4K... just my opinion

I'm not really interested in this bike, for 3.5k I would buy Canyon slx with new Sram red and r-sys slr wheels ;) just asking for the forum's opinion re this bike, mainly the frame.

It's a frame. Folks tend to think there is something magic about a frame... blindfolded, I would struggle to discriminate between a Surly pacer and a Specialized S-Works, I suppose... well maybe not that far, but you've got the picture

I like Planet X but wouldn't buy that as I don't see that it saving me any money. You could get a brilliant Look, Time (or similar) for that price - I'd have more confidence in the brand and it would be much more beautiful.

That's what I was thinking. 4k for a PX is a bit steep but then it may mean that the frame is really that "good" or something :?:
