Strawberry/Saltato frame set, by Andy Newlands

I came across a nice boutique frame set, made by a custom builder up in Portland. ~56cm (my size ), it is made out of 531 steel and Prugnat lugs, and sports a pretty cool internal binder bolt and wishbone seat stays.

Check it out:

Score! Monostay Strawberry is one for which I would break my moratorium. Nice color scheme, too. Guess I should be glad it is your size and not mine.

I have never liked the look of monostay frames but I have to say that looks quite "right". +1 on the colour.

What is the story behind "saltato" ?

I don't really know. It's obvious it came that way from the builder, but I can find nothing about it on the web.

Did a search in the bikelist.org archives and came up with this link. It would appear that Saltato was the name used by Andy before he started building Strawberry.

Sweet looking frame BBM. What kind of finish is on that fork? It looks very dark in the photos?

Weak flash. It is a bright and shiny chrome fork.



The frame set is now up for sale in the C&V Marketplace, if anyone is interested.

Man, I'd love to buy that and bring it back to its homeland but I don't really need another project right now. Why are getting rid of it?

You answered for me.

I already have 4 main bikes in rotation, with a Mondia and Merckx on the bench. If you're not Italian, it's hard to make first string around here.
