Dario Pegoretti credits Gino Milani for teaching him the science and the art of building bicycles. From there, Pegoretti moved into his own shop where he continued to build frames. Pegoretti was among the first of the European frame builders to embrace lugless TIG welding to build premium bicycles. In addition Dario worked with leading edge manufacturers, such as Excell and Dedacciai, in the development of new materials and tube sets. He earned a strong following among professional riders and built bikes for a number of elite teams. Recently the enterprise moved to a new shop where Dario builds a small number of fine bicycles, by hand, each year. In this world of cookie cutter products Pegortetti occupies a unique position as a true individual.
The Marcelo represents the best compromise between performance and comfort. Made for the rider looking for maximum performance and ability to absorb road shock as only a steel frame can.
Painting with Dario Pegoretti
Dario Pegoretti came to our Charlotte, NC headquarters the day before the North American Handmade Bicycle Show - NAHBS - this year. With one day and three paintings to complete, this is what happens when Dario puts his paint to canvas instead of a bicycle frame.
