pegoretti love#3


I have had this bike since 2008 and while i have enjoyed it i moved onto something else. the frame is amazing super stiff yet very comfortable for long rides. unique paint and huge stays make this bike stand out. the frame is 56cm with a 56.5 cm top tube. there are some knicks in the paint but they are cosmetic and can be touched up. i found out rather quickly that the paint was very fragile so i have always tried to be very careful but unfortunately some chips still managed to show up.
the frame comes with the reynolds ouzo pro fork and i have a cane creek 110 headset if you need.

now for the depressing part. there is a very small crack in bottom of the head tube. it is about 3/8 of an inch long but does not appear to go all the way through. I have no idea how this came about as i have owned the bike since new. have only installed the one headset when i assembled the bike and i have never crashed on it. i have spoken with gita on the phone sent them photos, had a gita rep take a look at it, numerous bike shops, and a very well known frame builder. i was told there is nothing to worry about and was offered a solution to fix the problem. if you are interested in the frame and would like to know i can pass the information on to you.

i am not asking much for the frame and fork as i know there is a minor issue but i can say i did ride the bike for most of the summer once i discovered the defect and it did not get any bigger or worse.

i also have pictures of the crack which i can pass along to anyone interested.
