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."

What our clients say

  • "Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."

  • "I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."

  • "Thanks very much Phil. Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects! Cheers, Ian "

  • "A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

  • "Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position. Felt more connected and compact on the bike. Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."
