I have started the build with Record 11 and Deda components but it will take a few days as work is in the way and I have to travel till the end of the week.

You've got a lot to learn, matey, and comments like that show how ignorant you can be :roll:
You've shown in other posts that your only experiences are trek trek trek trek and trek based kit.

FWIW Lionel, i'm not a big Pegoretti fan, but looking forward to seeing it built up! :thumbup:

This is what you wrote on my Majorca ride report earlier this year:

"Just lots of pictures of tarmac? Jesus another bradley wiggins shaving his legs Ffs."

That was pretty rude.

Dario Pegoretti is a small Italian artisan builder, he makes steel, stainless steel and alum frames. He has a small range of models. Mine is a Marcelo (or MxxxxxO), his "main" model. The paint is his Ciavete or "Dario's choice" and can be shock to some.

A search will give you more info.

Really like the close-up detail of the paint. When I see the frame as a whole... well I think I will have to see the frame built up :) I can definitely appreciate the workmanship and the uniqueness of this build. What wheels will you be going with? Something deeper or shallower? Look forward to seeing the finished product!
