NOTE TO DARIO
Dario, I called the guys at La Bicicletta in Toronto to see how you are doing. I was very happy to hear you are back at work and feeling better. I can't wait to see my Luigino when it arrives. I wish you the best of health and please, don't push yourself too hard. I would wait a lifetime to own a bicycle made by you. Best wishes, Gregory White

Your beautiful, quirky bikes were an inspiration to my husband during his yearlong treatment for cancer. This year we will ride the Livestrong Challenge in Austin and be proud. Next year, we hope to ride the Challenge on Duendes and be rock stars. I don't know what inspires you and keeps you motivated, but whatever is, know that there are so many of us that support that dream as you supported ours in your work. Your bikes are a dream come true. Dream Big. Live Strong.

Mr. Pegoretti, When I want to smile, one of the things I do is look at pictures of your bikes. It has been in my plans for years to get one, so you better get well. Love, Jim

Mi raccomando Dario questa è la scusa buona per smettere di lavorare e far fare tutto a Pietro... sfruttala al meglio. In ogni caso non mollare mai. Come vedi siamo in tanti e siamo tutti con te.

Dario - I can honestly say that one of the first road frames I truely lusted after was a Great Googlie Mooglie. I own three Italian bikes and hope that you get better so that you can build me my first custom frame. You are a true artist and not afraid to push the enevelope. Meeting you at Interbike was a treat and was probably one of the more memorable experiences I had there. You were very down to earth and not bothered to take time out of your busy schedule for a chat and photo. I hope to hear good things are coming your way soon!
Hey Dario - I was sad to hear of your news. You are an original and a blessing to the world and cycling. Remember that God never gives us more than we can handle. It sometimes just takes time to realize that we can. I will pray for you and hope that the Lord gives you peace and comfort in your time of need. God bless and keep building those beautiful bicycles! I'd love to have you build one for my son Grant. Here's a picture of him to cheer you up...he's got a smile that warms the heart.

Salve Dario, Spero che tutto va bene. Ho un telaio De Rosa, il Corum che e' acciaio, ma se' sto nel mercato per un' altro telaio, andro per uno dei suoi telaii. Mi piacciono il suo lavoro e il suo arte. Spero che sta meglio. Cordiali saluti, Riccardo

For years I have coveted your bikes. It is my dream to one day come to Italy for a month, get fit at your facility and come home with my Pegoretti. When that day comes I will see you well! I wish you a quick recovery, and all the best in the world!

Dario, Signor Pegoretti, For years I have admired your bikes. They are more than bikes and are truly art. In these days in the country where the dollar is king, it is unusual to see someone committed to their craft like this anymore. I wish you a speedy and full recovery. Ti auguro buona salute.
