Dario Pegoretti (born 18 January 1956) is a famous Italian bicycle framebuilder based in Caldonazzo, outside the town of Trento, in the Dolomites. Few frames touch the heart-strings of steel afficianados as the Pegoretti. Dario scours the earth in search of 70’s and 80’s era Campagnolo lugs, dropouts, fork tips, and bottom bracket shells in order to build a bike that properly pays homage his favourite builders of those bygone days – Luigino Milani and Mario Confente. One modern touch is that instead of sticking with the smaller diameter tubes of past decades, Pegoretti uses slightly oversized tubes to offer superior stiffness and responsiveness.
Pegoretti designed and built frames that were ridden by Miguel Indurain, Marco Pantani, Stephen Roche, Claudio Chiappucci, Mario Cipollini, and Andrea Tafi among others. He started out as a contract builder, making frames that would be labeled by other manufacturers until the American distributor Gita convinced him to build under his own name. Floyd Landis owns and rides a Love #3. He supplied comedian Robin Williams with bikes that the actor regularly used and particularly admired.
