I heard every time a shop sells a Pegoretti a bell rings in Trento.

If I were to get a Pegoretti I’d go for a “Day is Done”.

I wonder what the BB drop is?

I mean if you’re already dropping close to 5 grand on a frame might as well get the custom paint, right?

“Dario Pegoretti, one of the most respected frame builders in all of Italy, began his apprenticeship in 1975 with legendary builder Luigino Milani of Verona. In those days racing pelotons often had half their racers on Milani bikes, though usually under someone else’s decals. Top riders such as Roche, Battaglin, Chiappucci, Indurain, Tafi, Cipollini, Ghiroto, Fondriest, and many others relied on the Milani shop for their race bikes. Dario finished his apprenticeship in 1983 but continued building in the Milani shop until 1999. He then moved to his own shop near Trento where he and his assistant build about 250 frames per year – all by hand. Legendary Italian design, superior craftsmanship, and extraordinarily finish work make each Pegoretti frame a true one-of-a-kind masterpiece.”-Kyle (who told me Mr. Pegoretti built some of the BiKyle team bikes in the 90’s. )
