I’ve been looking to get a Pegoretti for a few years now and as luck would have it a fellow WW Forum user was selling his frameset a few months back. The eagle eyed among you will recognise this frame (it is fairly distinctive) from it’s previous incarnation and you can read all about it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=90213
So whilst the frame is not new to the forum it is new to me. For the build I wanted to keep it classic in style, fairly light, and mostly black so the focus is the frameset. The weight came in at 7.58kg, which isn’t too bad for a 58cm stainless steel frameset.
I’d like to thank Jon at http://www.justridingalong.com
for building the wheels and sourcing the second 12T lockring after the Royal Mail lost the first one!
