Pegoretti Responsorium...STAINLESS STEEL worthy of drooling

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wow... I love the fact that Dario makes all his frames and handpaints and decorates them, but it just doesn't do it for me. It has a very 8th grade art class look to it. Except the Pegoretti logo--that looks really cool. And is that fur-covered Aliante included with the frame?

Mighty fine looking, as most all Pegorettis seem to be. I just gotta have one of these someday.

So, PEG or Vanilla?

EDIT: FWIW Peg frames can be painted in any number of ways. Custom or from a myriad of schemes.

That's like buying a Carbon Bike from Seven or Serotta, you just shouldn't. Pegoretti's medium is definitely steel so buying an aluminum bike from a steel artist is just a poor choice.

Well, if you set quality of painting aside (Vanilla wins this despite the fact that I own a Pegoretti), You can have a custom pegoretti built and painted in about 4-6 months. A custom Vanilla will set you back about 2 years....just ask Rad

So, how does Columbus XCR compare to Reynolds 953?

I'm thinking when the Paramount sells, I'll need another steel bike.

OK, Big Leg Emma then...Don't think there'll be any spousal approval for another high-end bike anytime soon, though, so kind of a non-issue.

don't know how it compares to Reynolds 953 but the site says it is rust proof and 20% stronger than the Niobium tubing he uses now.

Oh, I have no regrets... my last spousal approval was well-used, IMHO...

Looks like that band Living Color was spray painted all over it.
That frame's a Cult Of Personality.

i'm not saying it's not a good bike...i'm saying i'd much rather have a steel Pegoretti, I'm sure Dario would much rather you buy a steel pegoretti.

Thylacine and Falanx had an interesting exchange comparing Columbus XCR to Reynolds 953 in THIS THREAD.

I thought the Paramount was on sale because the X-Factor says own fewer bikes.

Of course, you could always rent ....

I'm pretty convinced mr pegoretti could build a fine frame out of any material he chose.

Is there any framebuilder on the planet with more experience building frames for the european peloton's brightest stars?

Yeah i know he can make a frame out of dog doo if he had to...but I think I remember reading an interview where he stated he'd much rather work in steel and that he only made aluminum to meet the current market demands. That's all i was getting at...i'll see if i can find that interview.
