Dario Pegoretti makes some of the most sought-after bikes around. While he was a true craftsman and frame builder for the likes of Indurain and Cipollini, Pegoretti bikes are prized by cyclists like Robin Williams for Pegoretti’s artistic character (and custom paint option) that distinguishes his bikes from the competition. When Pegoretti collaborated with 3T on a custom-painted Exploro Team frameset, it was such a hit that they came together to make a select few others. Finally, 3T offers the possibility to create your own rideable form of expression, the 3T Strada Team Frameset (Ready to Paint).
The ultimate goal of the 3T Strada is to design an aero road bike that is comfortable both in fast sprints and long distance riding. As such, the bike is designed around four key aspects – aerodynamics, a 1x drivetrain, 28c tires with room to spare, and disc brakes. We think they’ve succeeded, despite how out of the ordinary the bike seems to be.
How is the 3T Strada to ride? Well, wider tires make as big a difference to ride quality as 3T claims; a good set of tires provide more compliance than any other part of the bike. Combine that with strong frame stiffness, and the Strada is an excellent choice for climbing and cobbles, high speeds, and long distances. And the 1x drivetrain? 3T claim that 8 out of 22 gears on 11-speed drivetrain are redundant. 11 speed gives you the gears you need with less complexity, weight, and air drag. It makes for a revelatory ride: no endurance road bike feels this fast, and no aero road bike is this comfortable.
Why choose the 3T Strada Team Frameset (Ready to Paint)? Because you want to create a bike that is truly an extension of your style and taste. We offer an inside line to custom paint, in any way you'd like it. Everything is done with a wet paint, even down to the 3T logos on the frame. Custom paint generally costs $350-800, depending on the paint scheme. Some examples can be seen HERE. With a wide array of paints in both gloss and matte, the color of your next Lauf Anywhere is only limited to your imagination.
The 3T Strada Team (Ready to Paint) comes in four sizes (S-XL), in a dark primer grey. This frame is prepped and ready to paint right out of the box, or can be run as-is with a 200 gram weight savings. Prices start at $3600, and come with the frame, 3T Fundi disc fork, 3T Charlie Strada seapost, and headset. Choose our custom two-tone paint option (+$350) to select your frame color and logo color, in gloss or satin finish options.
