Fatti con le mani means made by hand. This is what makes Pegoretti unique. 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.
Responsorium was designed by Dario to be a little more comfortable on longer rides than the Marcelo. This model is in the black with green stucco paint scheme.

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.
