Few frames touch the heart-strings of steel afficianados as the Luigino. Through the Luigino Dario 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.
The most delightful detail of the Luigino is its double-plate crown steel fork. Forks with box-style crowns offer the ultimate responsiveness to rider input, and the Luigino's double-plate design is a marvel of modern machining. It brings the box crown to a new dimension of beauty.
Available in very limited and unpredictable sizes or by special order. 27.2 seatpost, 28.6 front derailleur, 1" stearer.
The Luigino is also available at no extra cost with track fork ends. Look no further for the ultimate fixed/single speed frame.
We currently have a 56cm Luigino in Blue with Yellow panels. It includes a steel fork built with a Cinelli fork crown and a Campagnolo C-Record quill headset for $4,900. We have built it for display with 10 speed Record alloy components, down-tube shifters and wheels built with blue Ambrosio Excellence rims on silver Record hubs for $6,000 complete.
