Pegoretti MxxxxxO MezzaTazza 2021

After searching unsuccessfully for a used one with a graphic i dig (let alone the size) I decided to pull the trigger with a new one.
Given where custom steel frames are priced now I feel Pegs are still v good value especially considering the legacy and all the thoughts which went into the frame design. Now that I own one I can see what a marvelous piece of engineering that is. Built all Campy. Parts were easy to source despite what ppl claim about parts availability. I rode it yday and that thing is so fast and satisfying. I have been riding gravel bikes for the past 7yrs and I forgot how fast a properly tuned road bike is.
Last, kudos to them to make the buying experience very very smooth. I got my frame in a bit more than 3 months. They were easy to deal with. The main exchange was on the graphic and the choice of a tone of gray which would go well with the white cream polka dots. Initially i went for the Duende, but switched to the MxxxxxO because I am a sucker for those dropouts and wanted a stiff frame.

Well done!

Is that a stock size or custom?

Also, is that a standard base RAL color offered or something special?

Enjoy!

That’s a nice frame and build. I am sure it rides very firm, but smooth in the road.

I have had a couple, window shopping for another (62cm) to bring back into the stable.

Standard. I choose the RAL first selecting a medium pastel gray. Then they proposed an alternative gray a bit more metallic and I liked it right away. I believe is RAL 9023.
That was also why it was great dealing with them. They have so much knowledge of what works and what doesn’t.

Yes quite firm but the geometry is pretty relaxed for now. But that was my goal. My gravel bike has 27.5x2.35. For this build I wanted to have a very stiff, racey bike.

Outstanding!

Nicely done on the build too.

Are you in Italy if I remember correctly? Did you go pick it up by chance or have it shipped.

Enjoy many happy km's!

Yes picked up in Italy. I honestly thought the waiting would be north of 6 months but they were v fast.

Absolutely gorgeous. The Grail!

I hope to visit Italy again someday - we ride the same size!!

Yes to skinny tires. I enjoy gravel riding more these days, but there’s nothing like pedalling hard on a bike w 25mm tires on a smooth road!

Well done! Can’t think of anything I’d change except the size.This is one of the few bikes on my bucket list. You mentioned it’s on the stiffer side and I’m wondering if this means you can ride all day or if there’s a point where you’d prefer a different bike for some additional comfort?
