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 Duende is a rarely explained concept in Spanish art, particularly flamenco, having to do with emotion, expression and authenticity. This bike was designed with expression in mind.
The Duende is a comfortable frame that unites the classic design of round tubes with modern techniques.
The Duende is great for long rides without sacrificing responsiveness or comfort.
