Dario, I was so happy after listening to you talk at a local bike shop here in Austin earlier this year. Your passion and enthusiasm (and wit) were in full display. I wish you a full and speedy recovery. Ciao, John

All I can say is that I hope this guy gets well. I have no idea who he is beyond that he a great bike builder but I sent a similiar message of goodwill to Armstrong when he was diagnosed with cancer and he made a great recovery. I am praying the same happens for Mr. Pegoretti. God Bless you and get well. The world needs great artist. Phillip

Hello, Mr. Pegoretti, I knew your bikes first time via this website. Specially I was impressed with RESPONSORIUM and really wanted to get it. (and ordered) I love custom or hand-made product and like its feeling. Hope you get better and overcome the illness very early.

Dario, I do not own one of your bikes. Personally I am of the Carbon persuasion, but EVERY time I am out on a ride, and see a Pegoretti (rare in my location) I am in awe! I know that the rider is an "in-the-know" guy, and is concerned with top shelf crafsmanship! I hope that you are around to make many bikes for "in-the-know" riders in the future!

Dear Dario, The first time I rode one of your bikes (Fina Estampa) someone asked me what I thought. "This is a happy bike," I said, and then, under my breath, "and I want more of them. Lots more" And so I did. You put an awful lot of joy in a triangle of metal and alloy, and your friends, fans, loved ones, and a host of strangers have better lives for it. Now you know. And so: what can we do for you? Just ask, we are here for you. All the best, with love, Ricky

Dear Dario, The news of your illness was shocking, like a punch. We’ve never met, but I feel a deep affection for you – You make bicycles that are tremendously capable, beautiful, and personal. I was lucky to acquire a Nerac Love #3 frame last fall. You graciously advised me on “dressing” it, and even sent me handlebar tape to match the paint! Within a few weeks, it finally will be built up and on the road. My picture shows it partially built, still sculpture rather than bicycle. I was relieved to hear the recent news of your treatment and blood values. Expect a small token of thanks from me, which I hope will provide some musical nourishment as you recover.

Dario - I've been following you and your fine bicycles for some time now, telling myself that one day I would be able to own one of my own. When I heard the news I was distraught, but now I'm filled with hope that you'll recover and return to the craft you seem to truely love. I look forward to working with you one day. My best wishes,
