Pegoretti Duende Rock & Roll

Shown with Spaghetti Graphic

Towards the end of every summer for the past twenty years, when the swallows start to think about their journey south, we’ve made Duende CX frames. However, unless you’re a fan of cantilever brake, wide-tire cyclocross frames, the CX may have passed you by.

After fielding requests for an update to this beloved Pegoretti frame, we decided to add a new model to the Duende family, the Duende Rock & Roll. The new frame blends the all-terrain heritage of the CX with the spirit of our road frames and takes off for pastures new with the versatility to ride on any surface.

The Duende Rock & Roll features custom Columbus XCR stainless steel tubing, disc brakes, and a new carbon fibre fork, 'Piron', that accepts up to 40mm of tyres. It's a radically different design to our Falz fork, necessarily so, because the Rock & Roll is built for versatility. 

As a road frame, the Duende Rock & Roll blends superb responsiveness with telling comfort and the modularity of wider tyres. All-weather optional 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 Rock & Roll turns into a fast city commuter. For those who look beyond the tarmac, the Duende Rock & Roll equips the modern explorer for the fields, trails and generally less pristine conditions that come with following your curiosity, wherever that may lead.


A Pegoretti represents precision, perfection and playful creativity. Our frames are handmade in Verona, Italy for a lifetime of inspired riding. Enquire now to start your Pegoretti story.
