THE MISSING FRAME
Round, our latest frame, came to life over long lunches in the Bottega, and even longer deliberations by the espresso machine about its place in the Pegoretti line-up.
For some time, the Pegoretti community has been asking us to take the exceptional performance of the Mxxxxxo and develop a new model in stainless steel. Round is our response: an incredibly reactive frame built for the rider seeking a no-compromise steel speed machine.
Round blends bespoke Columbus XCR tubing with 3D printed stainless steel dropouts (a first on a Pegoretti), and a new rear triangle and brake bridge design that affords superior lateral stiffness and responsiveness.
Named in honour of the sign-off handle for which company founder, Dario Pegoretti was known to friends and customers alike, Round features an original graphic called ‘Texas Flood’, inspired by Dario’s love for the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan, the city of Austin, Texas and a certain colourful cowboy belt brought back from that same city.
