    Thanks John for posting this, the man is a true genius that seemed to come from another time and space. A Neo Renaissance man with his own style, his work outside of bikes doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
    riposa bene amico mio – rest well my friend

      He was an artist in a truer sense than many framebuilders. I was lamenting to my wife his passing, and talking about how expensive his frames were (only to get more expensive now), and she asked why. All I had to do was show her a couple paintjobs on IG and she got it. Like Picasso painting a Ferrari. Except he did it all.

    This one stings. Too damn young. For me he was other worldly. So much talent, his demeanor, even right down to the way he looked. Dario oozed cool. A true rock star in our industry. I hope he’s up there partying with Frank Zappa! RIP
