    Very nicely proportioned for a smaller frame size. You wonder that other builders can't acheive the same result - I would imagine it is custom sized, no?

    I think most builders would go slopping on such a small fame. He doesn't.

    Very drool-worthy.

    What's it weigh with pedals? How's the ride and handling?

    Would also be curious as to what seat tube angle he used on such a small frame.

    I own a steel bike with a steel fork. It should be obvious I don't care or have a clue of it's weight.

    Thanks. If I win the lotto, I'll splurge for a 29.4 WR post.

    If he did, then maybe your entire seat post would show (well, technically, it does, but...) and there wouldn't be nearly as much head tube distance above the top tube.

    There is more post in the frame then out of it. Not sure what you're seeing. All his frames have a tall headtube. I guess you are new to Pegoretti.

    Fixed it for you.

    To quote him - "The name on the frame is P-E-G-O-R-E-T-T-I, if you want sloping, buy a Giant!"

    Should have added ....
    "unless the geometry demands it." Evidently, that Fina Estampa required it whereas the Marcelos don't. The second frame could be level.

    The quote was first hand in 2002, in Caldonazzo.

    Well, if it was requested rather than a geometric requirement, then it appears Dario's principles are not as strong as they used to be. He'll probably start building with carbon stays before too long!

    If that is the case, I'm glad I no longer sell them.

    They are 46cm frames and required. I'm sure he is suffering the lose of your patronage.

    I did say if. Bearing in mind the passion with which he dismissed both sloping top tubes and carbon stays, I'd hope he'd still be true to his word. Seems the old bugger is. Good thing too.

    The fork on that thing owns. I must say, however, I'm slightly annoyed about "Handmade in Italia." If you want it to have true Italian flavor, don't say "handmade in ____." Just my thoughts.
    Do work.

    That is a beautiful bike there is no doubt about it.
    I have to say though that in my opinion it would be better balanced aesthetically if the top tube were joined to the head tube just a touch higher and it did have a slight slope to achieve the same standover height.
    I don't really get the idealistic top-tube-must-be-level-by-all-means thing... I do prefer a level TT as well but sometimes a little bit of slope can help balance the bike out visually. Seems obvious that this is one such example.
    Beautiful build none the less.

    Far from it. It is very common to have English on products, vehicles etc in Italy. Makes it exotic sounding apparently.
    An Italian friend of mine had a Look with Dura Ace & FSA all over it. Replaced it with a Wilier Le Roi dripping in Record because he lives in the UK and "it is necessary here, but the Look is exotic in Italy". Contrary to popular belief Campagnolo is not omnipresent in Italy, if anything SRAM was more evident in Laigueglia last weekend! Go figure!
