Pegoretti Responsorium Ciavete Artist Paint

Dario Pegoretti was half artisan frame-builder and half fine artist. Every frame that bears his name is superior to the sum of those parts. Unique. Irreplaceable.

Every piece is unique, sculpted, created by hand. A literal work-of-art you can ride.

You Don't Buy a Pegoretti - You Commission One.

And this one belongs to Nick - a longtime friend and client of Cyclefit. There is something achingly stripped and pure about a Pegoretti race-frame. Especially when it is crafted from custom butted Columbus XCR stainless steel tubing in the Pegoretti Bottega in Veneto. Nick has had the taste, judgement and experience to see the project through with stem-to-stern Campagnolo SR 12sp and a dalliance of Enve carbon. One should never buy a bike expecting it to be a sound investment. But this one is. Timeless and joyful.

"Ciavete is an exercise in artistry and improvisation. Hand-painted in a freeform, often abstract manner, each Ciavete is a unique composition, inspired by the moment and completed in one immersive, uninterrupted session."
