Pegoretti team builders to display at NAHBS

Published October 26, 2018

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (BRAIN)  — "Officina" Dario Pegoretti, the team of builders that Dario Pegoretti trained for many years — will exhibit at the 2019 North American Handmade Bicycle Show.

Dario Pegoretti, one of the most revered framebuilders of all time, died unexpectedly in August in Italy at age 62. Pegoretti was a multi-time NAHBS award winner, receiving the President's Choice award in 2007 and winning Framebuilder of the Year in 2008.

In a statement released from Gita Sporting Goods, the U.S. importer and distributor of Pegoretti frames, builder Pietro Pietricola said, "We can't yet talk about losing our amazing friend — it's still too near. But if Dario taught us anything, it was the ability to continue his work, developing the excellence and artistry of Italian frame building. And of course, to never turn the music down. We're going to respect his wishes."

The show will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center, March 15-17, 2019, in what will be the show's 15-year anniversary and its third edition to be held in Sacramento.
