Pegoretti Duende / CX

Shown with Ciavete: CX + Standard Versions 

The Duende is a little closer to a “traditional” frame than our other models, although it’s also available in a CX configuration for cyclocross riders and those in search of a capable all-road rim brake frame with room for up to 40mm tires (with the steel fork only, otherwise our standard 28mm limit applies).

While not quite as stiff as the Round, Mxxxxxo or Responsorium, Duende is well suited for someone seeking a comfortable all-day bike that does everything well. The tubing – Columbus ZONA – is still “oversized”, but with its traditional, tapering rear stays and more conventional dropouts, Duende’s aesthetic is more classic than esoteric.

‘Duende’ refers to a heightened state of emotion typically associated with flamenco. However, it’s an energy that appears whenever someone is doing something they love, like cycling.


A Pegoretti represents precision, perfection and playful creativity. Our frames are handmade in Verona, Italy for a lifetime of inspired riding. Enquire now to start your Pegoretti story.
