New Love #3

Shown with a geometric Ciavete scheme.

First launched in 2006, Love #3 became an instant classic, with riders falling for its fast, fun, and predictable handling. It was an aluminium frame unlike any other: aggressive and smooth. A punk rocker with good manners.

New Love #3 respects the original’s killer feel, but boasts a larger diameter headtube of 43mm, up from 39mm on the original. The new headtube is stiffer and blends better with the rest of the frames custom, over-sized Columbus Alloy tubing. But with a 4mm advantage over the original Love #3, the redesigned headtube required an entirely new headset, the Chris King D19.

D19 is a customised version of the popular Chris King sealed bearing NoThreadSet™. The new headset is a result of Chris King & Pegoretti’s ongoing partnership and builds on both brand’s long history of cooperation and innovation.

New Love #3 starts shipping fall/winter 2020, in all paint options, including Ciavete. Each frame includes the Chris King D19 headset, Pegoretti Falz carbon fibre fork, and finishing accessories.
