    Ciao,
    Paul
    I am still young and there can be no question - it has to be a Vespa. It also helps the local economy, and every little helps...

    do you happen to know where most of your frames go? is america your biggest market? are your frames popular in europe?

    last, but very important, how is your son doing? it was so much fun meeting him that night at dinner in the castle. he is such a smart, funny kid. you're very lucky to be his papa.

    take care,

    Hi James,
    I confirm that the political and economic situation of Italy at this time is not good, but this speech, with the necessary differences of case can be made also for many other Nations.
    Dario Pegoretti man, even before Dario Pegoretti framebuilder, is a valuable presence for all the people who know him and who want good, let Dario in Italy.
    I'm not a famous person and note, I'm glad though that a man like Dario, famous and known throughout the world, harbours a strong and positive image of Italy abroad

    If I have to be honest I'm a little pessimistic, I believe we need a clear change of mentality, starting by politicians passing through business and finally to the common people. But it is not easy.
    US is always my main market, Southeast Asia is incredible at this moment and the European market is much better than years ago, also in Italy, my market is much better.
    it is true ,I'm lucky to be Andre papā , he's incredible, the next year he will be 18 years old and is almost 2 meters tall, he wants to be a chef and I'm happy about that ( nice dinner for the future), we have a wonderful relationship, we are now in the mid of a big discussion because he wants to buy a scooter but the problem is that he like a honda but ...... I prefer the Vespa, maybe i'm too old , is a long discussion sometimes very funny ....

    Dear Dario,

    I am glad you stayed in Italy. A Pegoretti made in USA just doesn't sound right and will lose some of its appeal. It's like a Vespa made in Japan, would it not lose some of its character? But that's my selfish reason. I will probably still buy another Pegoretti even if it's made in USA but it's just a bit strange...

    Dario, you made such wonderful bikes to ride and just to look at! Riding my Pegoretti just makes me feel so happy and free. It's one brand that I have no hesitation recommending to bike lovers. Our group started with 2, now we have 7 within a year, and 7 more pending delivery in 2012 :) If you come to Singapore, we will be thrilled to meet you in person.

    cheers!

    I do not know if it is easy to find in usa "La Battaglia di Algeri" (The Battle of Algiers, 1966) , but is still a contemporary movie that does reflect.

    Once Upon a Time in the West is possibly my favourite film. I must have watched it at least six times. The titles at the beginning, which take about 20 minutes are sublime. The soundtrack is perfect. It was the turning point for Leone.

    OTH
    I completely agree. What a great strory told by Leone. Using John Ford's favorite landscape, Monument Valley, the incredible casting of Fonda, Bronson, Cardinale and Robards, and the unforgettable music of Morricone. Morricone's use of theme songs for each character was pure genius. Harmonica's haunting wail, Robards' kind of jaunty verses, Fonda's menace, and Cardinale's beautiful soaring type arias. My favorite scene is where she comes into the town on the train, and the camera pans over the station, showing the teeming city beneath and beyond the station, as the music builds. A metaphor for the westward push and America's destiny. Can't see it enough..

    Dario,

    My Mxxxxxo came with an Enve 45 mm rake fork.
    Bikyle sells your steel forks.
    Do you expect the frame to handle better with the steel?
    What differences in ride characteristics should be expected by switching?
    Why have you replaced many of your steel forks for carbon?

    Teo loves your painting and it is hung in my bedroom next to the bike.
    Colors match too.

    Henrique
    un abrazo,
    Henrique Tono

    Hi guys,
    as my friend sdg71 said, somewhere in between the months of May and June 2012 Caldonazzo will host the second Pegoraduno, a friendly meeting where all Pegomaniacs are welcome. It doesn't matter if you have or not a Pego, the purpose of the event is to share some good time with nice people who love Dario's work... and italian red wine, of course.
    As many of you may know, Caldonazzo is surrounded by dozens of fantastic mountains, with steep climbs through woods, peaks, rivers... you can bet we'll gonna have a GREAT ride!
    If anyone is interested, I can give you all the details, including accomodation, etc..
    C'mon, join us! ;-)
    Cheers from sunny (and freezing) Italy!
    -A.-

    Dario,

    I told my Marcelo riding friend Andrew that you were answering questions here. He wants to know how he can become your apprentice.

    Also, besides the ciavete, which I love, which are your favorite paint schemes?

    Thanks again,

    William

    the translator of google is not perfect!
    Ciavete is not an Italian word, but local dialect. I leave the honor to Dario to translate the true meaning.
