??Pegoretti??(7 posts)

May 27, 2003 5:21 PM
Any experience with Pegoretti, specifically the Fina Estampa? I've been looking for a new frame, and stumbled across Pegoretti. I considered Steelman and Spectrum (as well as a few others briefly) ... but the wait for a frame is too long (I'm impatient), and I'd like to ride something other than steel (which I have now).

sucks, I would have to say, and I'm thinking about getting it repainted, but other than that, it's a great bike. It's a great all around bike. It's not too much or too little of anything. It's absolutely laterally stiff, pretty darn comfortable, nice descender, easy to control in a turn -- etc., etc. The coolest is that the rear never leaves the road. It tracks like a mutha.
I've always heard that Ullrich got hooked up with Pegoretti when Pegoretti worked for Pinarello and that Pegoretti continues to make Ullrich's bikes. Pegoretti also does a lot of work with Deda -- all sorts of proprietary stuff.

I just bought a Fina Estampa about 3 weeks ago (see my review here); my initial comments about the excellent ride quality have only been confirmed, and I am getting used to the paint job.

The palosanto is their entry level steel frame, and I
have to say it rides great. Welds are very nice and
small and smooth. No noticable flex in the rear end,
very comfortable. I have heard only good things about
their other frames. The paint could be a little better,
overall finish looks nice, does chip a little bit though.

I wish other bike manufacturers would follow Pegoretti's lead and start putting extended head tubes on their frames with threadless forks. I would consider buying a Peg for that reason alone, although they have an excellent reputation.
Amen. nmRJF
