Pegoretti’s Duende Rock & Roll All Road Bike: Don’t Call it Gravel!


Pegoretti’s Duende Rock & Roll All Road Bike: Don’t Call it Gravel!

Pegoretti’s latest Duende project is a stainless steel disc frame with a new ‘Piron’ carbon fiber fork dubbed the Rock & Roll. Check out more below.

Pegoretti’s Duende platform has always covered a lot of ground, from the clean lines of the road model to the wide-tire ‘CX’ version, a longtime favorite in the cyclocross scene. And now, with the new ‘Rock & Roll’ frame, the Italian brand continues in the spirit of ‘Duende,’ the Spanish term for the magic conjured by the passion and soul of flamenco, to create its most versatile frame yet.

The new frame blends the all-terrain chops of the CX with the spirit of Pegoretti’s road frames and takes off for pastures new with the versatility to ride on any surface.

The Duende Rock & Roll, or ‘RR,’ features custom Columbus XCR stainless steel tubing, disc brakes, and a new carbon fiber fork called ‘Piron,’ designed to accept up to 40mm tires. It’s a radically different design from the brand’s Falz fork, reflecting the new frame’s versatility.

On the road, the Duende RR blends superb responsiveness with telling comfort and the modularity of wider tires. All-weather add-ons like mudguard mounts allow the frame to shoulder the worst conditions without skipping a beat. However, with the option of rack mounts and a switch to flat bars, the Duende RR turns into a fast city commuter. For those who look beyond the asphalt, the Duende RR equips the modern explorer for the fields, trails, and generally less pristine conditions that come with following your curiosity, wherever that may lead.

At launch, the Duende RR is offered in a unique ‘Spaghetti’ graphic, a tongue-in-cheek design inspired by that most sacred Italian practice: the preparing of the pasta. And as we all know, pasta comes in a lot of varieties.
