pegorichie dreams
 
what kind of sorcery is this?

rides like a dream. so springy, so jumpy, so suave. feels like a natural extension of my legs.

i am smitten. anyone else in the same boat? why have i not ridden these tubes before?!

For all of the advancements in frame materials, to me a nicely built bike of light steel tubing still *feels* the best to me...(nice looking bike, BTW)

Steel is real. nice bike. Whats that on the top tube?

Mzilliox 02-11-2019 09:02 AM

i pretty sure they make up a part of the Goodrich i roll. And if that is the case, yes, magic. and your bike is rad, i saw a scarab recently on a festka post with Melody Farms...

Huh. My instagram world and my paceline world collide..

My Zank is Pegorichie, one of the first. The ride and handling are incredible.

I've updated the drivetrain over the years.

Help a brotha: what does Pegorichie mean? I've got a hunch but need the facts

Tubeset they (Sachs and Pegoretti) specced that was designed for the lugs they use (or something like that). They make them available to other builders too.

I think my steel Zanconato is also PegoRichie tubes and yeah, it's a pretty nice bike too. Here pictured with some Ergott-built wheels, which have been extremely nice as well and fit this bike perfectly.

Crappy picture, but you get the idea.

Like Eric's, mine has evolved over the years on the build as well. Not flashy, but this 105 stuff is hard to beat for performance and value.

From the Richard Sachs site:

"As professional cycle racing came to be dominated by carbon-fibre, a new wave of craftsmen framebuilders appeared on the scene. Those wishing to work with steel tubes and lugs found that building frames to modern performance standards was difficult, largely due to lack of suitable materials and tube profiles. Doyens of this band of constructeurs, Dario Pegoretti and Richard Sachs, worked with Colombus to develop what became known as PegoRichie tubing – Spirit (Columbus’ premier ferrous tubeset) for lugs. Oversize round tubes and long butt profiles made PegoRichie a favourite of craftsmen builders worldwide. Now, with oversize profiles in ultra-high tensile materials – Spirit and XCR – steel can compete with any other frame material – aluminium, titanium, carbon-fibre." http://richardsachscyclocross.com/sp.../columbus.html

Yeah, my pegorichie sachs was the best steel bike I ever had. So smooth.

tsarpepe 02-11-2019 11:25 AM

It's Columbus Spirit with different profiles and dimensions.
