Speed, comfort and plenty of panache - Pegoretti's stainless steel Responsorium is an indulgent love letter to timeless Italian craftsmanship. Keep Reading
Based on the legendary Marcelo, Pegoretti's Responsorium is an exercise in uncharacteristic (for Pegoretti, and for us) moderation. It retains its older brother's burly looks, with oversized tubing throughout, but the Columbus metal is now stainless steel XCR, with aggressive butting to both drop weight and deliver more compliance to the rider. Chain and seatstays are slimmed down to 16mm from 18mm to soften the ride, while Pegoretti's signature hooded dropouts remain to maintain stiffness at the rear hub. The stainless tubeset is resistant to corrosion, making the Responsorium an ideal steel bike for year-round riding in unforgiving locales. Up front, the Responsorium keeps the trademark D11 Pegoretti headtube, and the house-designed Falz fork completes the signature design.
Available in any of Pegoretti's current paint schemes or in the original “Surprise Me”, Ciavete, each Responsorium, like all other Pegoretti frames, is first a bicycle, and second a work of art. Handmade and painted in Pegoretti’s frameshop in Verona, Italy, all frames are available in stock sizing or custom geometry for an upcharge. Pegoretti framesets include Falz fork, Chris King D11 headset, and mechanical routing only.
