I had a Zanconato with Pegorichie tubing a few years back; most of my PRs were set on that bike. Granted I was also a bit fitter back then, but nonetheless that bike rocked.

So what you are saying is it's not Columbus Spirit :D

ColOmbia!

It’s a new builder, based outside of Medellin.

It is also called spirit for lugs IIRC

A Colombian custom bike company?? That´s freakking cool.
I am in south america and usually commute through Bogota´s airport. My experience w/ colombians is wonderfull.
They are deep into cycling w/ legendary climbers. Girls and boys ride the mountains all the time on beautifull gear.

Thank you, cool detail.

Thread should be renamed pegorichie reality.

I've got a frame made with the PegoRichie Uber OS tubes and special lugs, with the matching fork with flat fork crown. Very nice. Above is a link that tells about the set.

Yes my pegorichie Sachs is a very noticeable difference from my Peg Marcelo, and your description is spot on with my perception.

New builder with some experience with an old builder. My riding buddy has one. It's a beautiful bike (both yours and his).

And, yes, Pegorichie tubes are awesome. I have two steel bikes with them and they're both keepers.

Did they work for Tinno Cycles down there? I had been following them and their website went dead, they made some cool bikes and their prices were more than fair.

Maybe this is heresy, but I don't think you can feel any difference between high end steel tube sets. I say high end, because you need that tensile strength with lightweight tubing. So, Reynolds 853 or 953, Dedacciai Zero, Columbus Spirit etc will all behave the same. The builder can make some difference in how they select gauges, angles, butt lengths, etc.

im not sure i understand this. each high end tube set is a bit different right? I have a bike built of high end skinny tubes, and one built of high end oversized tubes and one built with high end normal tubes, and had one built with mini max tubes and each one is entirely different in feel. and yes, i could most certainly ride them blindfold and tell you which is which. i know exactly how my goodrich feels on the driveway every day vs other bikes. when you have 3/4 miles of chunky gravel at the start and end of every ride, you learn fast what forks give, what tires kush, how carbon bars change feel, how a good fork sucks up bumps, and what steel feels like compared to steel, carbon, ti and alu.

My point is: this is like saying "Reynolds 531 rocks" or "Columbus sucks". Yes, many nice bikes were built with 531, and many unremarkable ones as well.

Venerable bikes like Masi GC and Cinelli Supercorsa used both 531 and Columbus on different frames. I just don't think one brand of tube set is superior to another.
