Pegoretti Marcelo MxxxO
Commemorative Pegoretti caps
The Marcello is Dario's most efficient frame for maximum power in hill climbing and sprints. Built from Dario's proprietary oversized tubeset of heat treated Columbus Spirit Niobium*. With its oversized 38 and 31.7mm main tubes, this frame is stout enough for the most aggressive rider. Yet, it absorbs road shock like a magic carpet. The hand cut stainless steel rear dropouts and oversized stress-directional rear stays add to the beauty and function of this very special frame. Weight is 3.9 lbs in 55cm.
*NIOBIUM is a very special steel with manganese, chrome, nickel, molybdenum and niobium. In careful testing, Niobium is more effective than Vanadium and other alloys as a strengthening agent. Columbus' patented chemical composition improves resistance against precipitation and reduces the alloy grain size for a more resilient ride. After progressive drawing and forming NIOBIUM undergoes a special heat treatment that gives the steel its final characteristics. Niobium provides superior mechanical characteristics and higher resistance to environmental effects than conventional carbon steels.
"You asked about the Pegoretti Marcelo I got from you in 2009. Let me put it this way, I sold my Colnagos and just ride the Pegoretti. I love the bike!" Peter M, Tx, 6/2013

Inspired by the musical genius of Thelonius Monk, this is a special frameset for the ages. Black piano keys on a gloss white background speak distinctly to jazz and classical music fans of every age while the terse yet penetrating lines speak to artists of every genre. As you ride up, there is a phrase for this frame ... "OMG". Includes frame plus 1 1/8" full-carbon Trigon fork in matching white, no headset
