[Pegoretti Build]
Our best customer brought this frame in for Frank to build for him. He purchased the frame used wanting and relishing the chance to add a Pegoretti to his collection as well as ride the Big Leg Emma and its heralded ride. These frames can be tough to get and are unique in that the Columbus steel tubes have very large diameters especially for the chain and seat stays. From first glance, it does not look like a steel frame at all until you pay attention to the details. The frame is just an absolute beauty and was fun to build! After some consultations, he decided on trying the new Campy Super Record group for the first time. Wheels carry on the current trend of EDGE 1.45 45mm tubular rims laced to DT Swiss 190 ceramic hubs with DT Swiss Aerolite bladed spokes. Stem and handlebar as well as the seatpost are Deda Zero100. These pictures just do not convey how nice this build really is in person. Enjoy!
