NOTE TO DARIO
Saluti Dario, Sono molto dispiaciuto di sentire che si sono ammalate. Vi auguro di avere presto meglio in modo da poter continuare a fare il vostro bel biciclette. Sei un artista e di creare la più magnifica macchine nel mondo. Guido la mia Fina Estampa ogni domenica. Gli itinerari sono i momenti più divertenti della mia vita. Dopo ogni giro ho detto, "Grazie Dario." Judy Lazzerini, Età 59. Tallahassee, Florida, USA

Hi Dario, or Senor Pegoretti, Thanks so much for the masterpiece that is the Marcelo (Why Not Blue) you built for me. It is truly a masterpiece of form, and function and gets me excited everytime I ride and look at it. Get well and please continue to create the beauty that is Pegoretti cycles.

Gday Dario, I was told I have Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma on 01/2007, I had 4 months of chemo, and now are in remission. :-) You will have good and bad days, but you will get through the otherside. Live slow,ride fast. Carlo

Dario, I have been an avid cyclist for longer than I want to admit. For me it has been more than the excitement of a race and the serenity of the long solo rides it's the appreciation and facination of the bicycle as a machine. Your craftsmanship has always kept your frames on top of my most wanted list. The artistic skill and classic lines with a big heaping of attitude have always made your work stand above all others. Wishing you many warm sunny days and please keep making those frames for us to enjoy. Steven

Dario, Please excuse the English only message. I confess I’m a bike geek with racist tendencies. If it isn’t Italian, it’s ... uh... you know the rest. I thought you might get a kick out of this. It’s a PORTRAIT of my bike done by a local abstract artist named Christopher Griffen. When I met him he just had his bike stolen and I happened to have a Bianchi for sale. A fair exchange I would say. The subject is a 2002 Colnago Dream (named Ernie). I'm coming up to my fifth anniversary of being cancer free. I can say I might know what you are feeling right now. Hang in there... do what the doctors say... read Lance’s book...you know the rest. All the best. Ian Ian.Kirk@sympatico.ca

Hi Dario, This is my second season on a Duende which is painted in Green Arrows. Every time I hop on it for a ride it makes me feel so special. It rides like very few bikes out there. The looks of the paint is from a true artist. Only you can make a bike this way. In a world of "cookie cutter" bike makers you are a true gem. Thank you so much. It is a privilege to own one of your masterpieces. I plan on buying another of your bikes in the future. Please get well soon!
You, sir, are the Dude as far as I can tell but I've only seen pictures and read a few words. Yeah, I got the bike and I love it...I don't want to bore you, it's too much to tell here. You do what you gotta do on your terms. Answer to no one. Nipple-rings? Nude welding sessions? You go, Dario!

I too, was diagnosed with lymphoma (non Hodgkins) on 07/09/05. My own personal 11/09 as I like to call it. I've been cancer free for nearly two years and enjoy every moment I'm on my bike. Hang in there and fight this thing. Its a good time to have cancer since it is so treatable these days. As a more well known cancer survivor has stated: "The day I was diagnosed with cancer is the day I started to live." Keep up a positive attitude and never stop fighting. Life is worth living...now let's get on with living this life! Steve Hengst Houston, TX USA
