Pegoretti acquired almost all of their knowledge and expertise from Gino Milani. Not known in the cycling world at large, Milani was one of the most brilliant Italian frame builders of the Seventies.
At that time his work influenced all major bicycle manufactures. When Cicli Milani closed down in early 1990 they moved to Illasi. The town of Illasi, not far from Verona, is well know for it's wonderful wines. Since 1987 Pegoretti has been building top quality bicycle frames, and the first in Italy to use TIG welding techniques.
Pegoretti's first TIG welded frames were made with the famous tubes produced in France by Excell. From 1991 through to 1997, they built frames for pro road teams. They also worked on tube geometry and designed the DynaLite and Radius tube series which are marketed by Dedacciai.
Since 1997 Pegoretti has exclusively designed and created frames carrying the Pegoretti name. Pegoretti's limited output is based upon the best available materials. Each frame is developed according to the individual morphology and cycling requirements of their customers.
In 1999 Pegoretti moved to Levico Terme, a few miles from their home town near Trento. Levico is a beautiful resort in the Dolomites, and has several times been home to the mountain stage of the Giro d'Italia. Since they went to Levico, Pegoretti has redesigned their frames, working on the assumption that an all-round tube profile offers the best compromise between lateral strength and resistance to torsion. Such a choice exploits to the maximum the concept of oversized frames.
While Pegoretti has an extensive product line, here are just a few.
