Pegoretti Marcelo Mxxxxo

In 2007 Tom Boonen took the sprinter's green jersey in the Tour De France on a Pegoretti Marcelo with Specialized logos on it. That says everything about the Marcelo and what it was designed to do.

The Marcelo is the flagship steel bike from the most revered frame builder of his generation, it is what Dario thinks a steel race bicycle should be.  Should you ever find yourself in Plato's cave, the shadows of steel road frames cast upon the wall, are cast  from a Marcelo.

Round tubes attached to round tubes with angelic welds, the Marcelo you hold in your hands is merely the obvious manifestation of Dario's genius.  Dig deeper and you will find the fanatic attention to detail that has driven the tubing manufacturers at Columbus mad.  Every element of design and manufacture brings his vision exactly to life.  Each custom drawn tube is a little bit wider here and somewhat thinner there such that each Marcelo manifests a dreamlike ride quality worthy of it's Pegoretti badge.

The Marcelo is made from Dario's own version of the Columbus Spirit tubeset, the top steel alloy currently available for bicycle construction. His oversized version of Spirit makes the race-inspired ride of the Marcelo possible. It is stiff and responsive with the snappy, lively feel and results in a smooth and damped ride combined with taught, stiff responsiveness under power. The Marcelo gives up nothing when compared to other super premium frames no mater of what material.

The Pegoretti hooded dropouts are intricately machined stainless steel, stunning to behold and capable of absorbing hard wheel-in, wheel-out abuse. The chainstays are thick (18mm) and taper gracefully toward the bottom bracket to allow for stiffness and adequate tire clearance. The Marcelo comes with Pegoretti's Falz full carbon fork. After an an exhaustive search failed to find any fork on the market to meet his specifications, Dario designed and Columbus made his own.  And the finish - that famous Pegoretti paint. Hand applied with the same mystical attention to detail as the rest of the manufacturing process, if you don't like it, Picasso is probably beyond you as well.

We offer the Marcelo as a frameset and we would be happy to consult with you about a complete bike or a parts package to compliment your Pegoretti frameset.  The Marcelo comes with a Falz fork and a custom designed Chris King D11 headset.  It uses a 31.8 seatpost and a 32mm derailleur clamp. The bottom bracket is Italian threaded. We have several sizes and paint schemes in stock (including one or two with the old 29.4 seat tube and standard 1-1/8 head tube) and ready to ship.
