Beat the big 2012 and 2013 price increases, grab a 2011 frame while you can!
Delivery Time: Currently available Pegoretti frames are listed on our web pages. These frames will typically be rustproofed, machined, and shipped within 3-6 business days of your order. We make a decided effort to keep our listings up to date but please email us if you would like a double-check on current stock. Due to the extremely limited supply of these handmade frames, all except currently available inventory begin life as a special order. There are generally 150 frames on backorder worldwide. Dario makes about 250 frames a year and he builds frames in model-batches depending on tube supply, etc. Therefore, a reasonable estimate for frames ordered now is about 8-12 months, however, this time frame cannot be guaranteed. And, due to very limited supply of stainless steel tubing, Responsoriums take closer to 24 months. Please note: A $500 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is required at time of order. This deposit is sent directly to Pegoretti. Balance will not be charged until the day frame ships to you.
Made from Columbus Spirit cromoly, the Duende is essentially a Marcelo front triangle matched to an extra comfortable "Palasanto" rear triangle. The result is a frame not quite as stiff as a Marcelo but even more forgiving. According to Dario, the Duende should be a marvelous frame for everyone who doesn't crave the extra stiffness of the Marcelo. For all except our largest riders, it should be a wonderful frame for century rides - the perfect work of art for those who refuse to give up comfort or efficiency. Tubing is heat treated low alloy "Spirit" cromoly from Columbus, fork is 1 1/8" full carbon (for optional cromoly fork see below). Weight is 3.9 lbs for 54cm .... $2849.99 for frame and carbon fork Add to CART
This is a standard edition Duende with a special customization: the chainstays have been widened a little and the brake bridges raised a bit in order to handle a wider tire (in the 28-30mm range depending on make). Still fits standard 40-50mm brake calipers, no need for long reach arms. This frame includes color matched 1 1/8" threadless cromoly fork custom made by Dario, regularly a $400 upgrade. Color is "Ethnic red" as pictured. Regularly $3249.99
