Towards the end of every summer, when the swallows start to think about their journey south, Pegoretti builds Duende CX frames. However, unless you’re a fan of cantilever brake, wide-tire cyclocross frames, the CX may have passed you by.

After fielding requests for an update to this beloved Pegoretti frame, they decided to add a new model to the Duende family, the Duende Rock & Roll. The new frame blends the all-terrain heritage of the CX with the spirit of their road frames and takes off for pastures new with the versatility to ride on any surface.

The Duende Rock & Roll features custom Columbus XCR stainless steel tubing, disc brakes, and a new carbon fibre fork, 'Piron', that accepts up to 40mm of tyres. It's a radically different design to our Falz fork, necessarily so, because the Rock & Roll is built for versatility.

As an alroad frame, the Duende Rock & Roll blends superb responsiveness with telling comfort and the modularity of wider tyres. All-weather optional add-ons like mudguard mounts allow the frame to shoulder the worst conditions without skipping a beat. However, with the option of rack mounts and a switch to flat bars, the Duende Rock & Roll turns into a fast city commuter. For those who look beyond the tarmac, the Duende Rock & Roll equips the modern explorer for the fields, trails and generally less pristine conditions that come with following your curiosity, wherever that may lead.

Lakeside Bicycles offers the Duende Rock and Roll as a frameset and would be happy to consult with you about a complete bike or a parts package to compliment your Pegoretti frameset.  The Duende Rock and Roll comes with a Piron fork and a custom designed Chris King D11 headset.  It takes a 31.6 seatpost and a 33.6mm front derailleur clamp.  The bottom bracket is English threaded.   The Duende Rock and Roll is manufactured in standard geometries in 1cm increments from 45 to 63cm as well as by special order, in custom geometries.  Pegoretti frames can be ordered in any current design including Panel, CIavete, or in solid colors.  Duende Rock and Roll's can be ordered set up for mechanical road, mechanical CX, or wireless; and to include fender and rack mounts (the Piron fork already has them).
