2008 Pegoretti Duende Ethnic

I believe I'm done getting this set up as desired so time to post it here.
I replied almost immediately when John (jumpjube) posted his for sale. I wanted the frameset but he was liquidating his collection and wanted to keep it complete, so we went back and forth. The day that Dario passed I decided it was stupid to delay so we closed the deal and, in spite of the hurricane bearing down on him, he got it shipped out (great packing job by his local shop too).

Before taking it out for its maiden voyage the only things I did were flip the stem, move it down the steerer, and put on some King Ti cages:



(Note: alas, anything green you see in the above picture was scorched in the recent fire.)

Next step was to change the saddle, go for a longer stem and a matching seatpost (Zipp):



Final changes: different saddle (thanks Clean), new cassette, cut the steerer, trim cables and housing, new bar tape and a hint of bling with some colored spacers:



Detail (I know, the "gold" spacer is more copper/orange):



Specs:

2008 Duende in size 50 with 'ethnic' paint
Reynolds fork
Chorus 10 groupset, compact crankset, Centaur 12-30 cassette
Chris King headset
Zipp Service Course SL stem (130 -17) and seatpost
Specialized Romin saddle
Record hubs laced to Open Pro rims, Michelin Pro 23s

On the future docket:

Have OP relace the hubs to something lighter and wider, maybe DT, with Vittoria gumwalls
(Maybe) swap the Chorus 10 for mid-compact silver Potenza 11

I'm not a fan of over the top bling, but yours is tastefully planned and well executed. Very nice build!

The ride is outstanding, a lovely balance of responsiveness and stability. While I have about 650 miles on the bike at this point I'd say I'm still adjusting to the very different geometry versus my Ottrott, much more race positioning but still pretty comfortable. I think the longest ride so far was ~65 miles, still felt quite fresh at the end.

My riding preference is for climbing and the bike seems a tad on the heavy side, which is why I'm thinking about different rims (also for greater width — would love to splurge on some Shamals). It descends with absolute certainty, just set the line and trust it.
