Stock and custom hand-made Italian carbon bicycles — for less than the price of most high-end off the rack bikes.
The Sarto Workshop has been making custom bicycles for over 30 years. As the first company in Italy to specialize in the production of tube-to-tube carbon fiber frames, Sarto is proud that every aspect of the process is controlled in-house, from inspecting and mitering the tubes to painting the finished frame. A finely-tuned team of 15 young and old specialists produces over 2500 hand-made frames per year.
Antonio Sarto, the family patriarch and undisputed head of the shop, is eighty-two years old, but he is still the first one to arrive at the workshop each morning. “I have been building bicycles since I was 17,” he says. “I don’t know what else I would do if I didn’t come to work.”
Custom hand-made and production carbon bicycle frames.
Over the last decade, Parlee has pioneered a host of industry firsts: the first customizable carbon fiber racing frames; Flex Fit semi-custom geometry; and the first sub-800 gram carbon fiber frame are just a few.
But unlike other manufacturers, who chase trends and invoke unnecessary styling into their bikes, Parlee’s technological developments follow a natural progression. By always thinking about how to make our bikes better, as a product driven company, Parlee has organically evolved, with each model seamlessly building on the success of its predecessor.
While other manufactures continuously re-invent themselves not out of necessity, but as sales ploy, Parlee does not make change for change’s sake. If you want a giant down tube, a box-shaped bottom bracket, or swoopy chainstays, look elsewhere. Parlee doesn’t traffic in superfluous stylings, for they do nothing for ride quality, and only add unnecessary bulk and weight.
Instead Parlee focuses attention where attention matters: carbon fiber lay-up schedules and torsional tube design. By utilizing the correct shapes and tube densities, Parlee is able to reach cycling’s Holy Grail: the delicate balance between torsional stiffness and vertical compliance.
