It’s very difficult for me to measure stiffness but what I do is sprint to my max (~1,100W) on a climb and see how the bike behaves on the front end (my feel in handlebar) and on the back (the lateral flex I feel on my show at the bottom of the pedal strokes).

My reference were a Passoni Top Force a Stelbel Rodano this Peg.

The components were virtually the same in all 3 frames.

Front end I think nothing beats the Passoni. Might be the very large headtube and tbe massive tube set all around. But that thing was so well planted when sprinting.

The stelbel was flexy both front and rear and I felt the flex both on handlebar and on the bottom bracket.

The Pegoretti is different. The front end feels less firm than the Passoni but the rear end feels even stiffer than the Passoni. Might be the short chainstay, the very beefy tubes on the seat tube and seat stays.

I don’t expect this bike to be the best all day cruiser although I will use it as such.

Ultimately the comfort in my humble opinion is driven by tire pressure. I typically ride skinnies at low psi 75-80 and I feeL this dampens a bit the vertical rigidity of the frame (and the seatpost, a 31.6mm zero offset post).

Lovely, and great comparison between your other bikes, certainly felt the same about the MXXXXXO I owned, the rear end was super responsive, no wasted energy.

Couldn't agree more - and doing so on a beautiful Peg like the OP's .. *chef's kiss*

I imagine that depends entirely on the road surface. I've ridden 100mi on 25s and a super stiff road bike and felt more fresh than 70mi on fat 28s on a compliant carbon frame - the difference? Smooth pavement vs. chip-seal and frost-cracks.. It's annoying to ride stiff, efficient bikes and tires on bad roads, and to ride soft, compliant bikes and tires on smooth roads. Such is the roadie life.

Great looking Peg. I owned one for 6 years and it was a fantastic bike. Enjoy and have many fantastic years on your new Pegoretti.

take one of the best paint jobs on a peg which is the pokadot and scramble it all up and get an even nicer paint job. And the falz fork gotta be one of the nicest looking carbon forks available.
