Classic Pinarello Banesto Team frame. Not a replica.
As ridden to many Tour de France victories by Indurain and Delgado, this was made by Dario Pegoretti on behalf of Pinarello using tubing (Dedaccaia 18MCDV6HT) specially made and heat treated for Pegoretti.
Seriously light for a steel frame - 1875grams frame + 625 grams fork.
Professionally restored to better than original condition.
This is a very rare beauty.
Sizes are: Seat tube 57 cm Centre BB to centre top tube (61cm to top of seat lug)Top tube 59cm centre to centre.
Many more photo's available if requested.
Any inspection welcome, local pick up preferred.

The bicycle of Miquel
We return just as in the time. Firstly towards the web test of 20 September: in this were taken into consideration of Pegoretti the Marcelo of gebroeders. In the web test we told all that Dario Pegoretti a bicycle for Miquel Indurain built. What in this did not stand is that Pegoretti framebuizen in association with Dedacciai developed. Among which the so-called Dynalite stole failing set. And of which these Pinarello have been made? Correctly of Dynalite fail….
Before you think that this beautiful red bicycle is new it has you wrong. Yes, the frame is, however, nagelnieuw, but it hung for years at the Dutch importer in the rack. Sin found we and built the frame. The Pinarello Dynalite became to end 1997 led and cost around the ƒ 3400,-- approximately € 1500, -. In the buy guide 1997 stood mention `official plough bicycle Banesto and Telekom'. End of nineties of previous century did see aluminium its entrance in the group and: the Dynalite disappeared of the stage. It had both barge and more rigidly: and that does not succeed with steel…. Firstly aluminium and then particularly the Keral Lite - the model with which Riis in 1996, the Tour winning and the Paris - the bicycle of Ullrich- and later magnesium - the dogma, the bicycle of Petacchi. Became fail `oversized' and geovaliseerd carried out, the lugs disappeared and the slim steel voorvork made place for `dikke' carbon paper fork… Nothing oversized and not geovaliseerd. Nou… that is not also where. The Dynalite have three kogelronde hoofdbuizen which are slightly oversized: staande tube 30 mm Ø, the bovenbuis 28.6 measure mm Ø and the located tube 31.6 mm Ø. the partition cross-sections of H (eat) T (reated) chromium molybdenum fails amount to no longer than 0.45 mm. Staande and located achtervorken, however, lichtjes the geovaliseerd are. And nowhere lugs to confess: the Dynalite were of the first steel frames which TIG were ordered. But complete traditionally - and beautiful are the engraved achterpatten (with stelschroefjes), the engraved bracket and of course the fork crown of the bowed steel voorvork. The weight: 1780 grammes for 58 cm frame, 630 grammes the voorvork. We have only measured the torsion formality. Those are representative for slim steel frames from the eighties and 90: 69 Nm/º. But this value also encounters you at frames which 200 up to 300 grammes more ways. And that gave at the time thus a small projection on failing set to the Dynalite such as Columbus MAXIMUM and ELL and Reynolds 531 and 753 and Oria. Exactly something barge and as a result, exactly what arranged better for the competition. And still as F1 a cyclist, therefore with the wheel consistency on the Dynalite drunk it could tja, professor racers and can send, however, good. Completely with Campagnolo record & Chorus group, hand-made wheels with Mavic open pro rims and among other things Dedaelementi wheel pen and matching Selle Italia `Century' Pinarello saddle comes the Dynalite to 8.8 kilo. Nicely for a steel bicycle! The Dynalite have real `allround' geometry with a footing of 1000 mm, follow of 57 mm, zitbuishoek of 73.2 º and a ball head angle of 72,3º.
We return in the time. But then certainly such a ten years… The Pinarello are a real steel race bicycle. Sounded of the way passes, however, but that will be paired with much less hurly-burly as at `dikke' aluminium bicycle. And: steel gives a feeling more you than the dull `kunststof' of carbon paper. The combination of Italian steel, Ferrari red and Campagnolo 10-speed ensures that this a bicycle is with which gladly drives you and with as much pleasure nasty looks at such as you on terrasje a cappuccino drinks. And you want make him really nineties without driving round oud' `assemble then a couple Shamal wheels. The Dynalite are clearly no bicycle for stoempers or men (M/V) that simply zoeken a race bicycle and attach no value to chronicle. For that the Dynalite are too exactly exclusive. And there are in abundance carbon paper and aluminium frames which much less ways are - and which also still cheaper. Thus are you in search of a bargain: rapidly somewhere else look at. And tja, it are not at all certain or you still to Dynalite can come. We came recently on Markplaats and it can best be that in the Netherlands and Flanders still a couple drives copies… But you want nevertheless steel Pinarello: the Stelvio and Sèstriere are still regularly offered buy. Also beautiful. But nevertheless not as beautiful as the Dynalite…

Dario Pegoretti has long been a formidable behind-the-scenes presence. He acquired his knowledge and expertise from legendary Gino Milani. Milani was never famous to the cycling world at large, but he was one of the most brilliant framebuilders of the 1970's. His work was a major influence on every high-end framebuilder of the time. Since 1987 Pegoretti has honored the Milani legacy by going beyond the limitations of standard tubing to build unique, world-class frames. Pegoretti is synonymous with innovation. He was the first in Italy to use TIG-welding techniques. For over a decade he's worked side-by-side with Dedacciai to design and develop new tubesets. The DynaLite and Radius tubing so popular with Italian framebuilders throughout the late 90's are direct products of Pegoretti.
From 1991 to 1997, Pegoretti built frames exclusively for pro road teams. Everyone wants to know who, when, where, and how, but unfortunately a lot more folks don't want you to know. But we'll put it like this -- think of any major rider of the 1990's and you can more or less guess that they rode Pegoretti frames decaled otherwise. Name a major bike race, and it's been won on a Pegoretti. Since 1997 Pegoretti has designed and created frames carrying their own name. In 1999 they moved to Levico Terme, a beautiful resort in the Dolomites. It has several times been home to mountaintop finishes in the Giro d'Italia. Since they've moved to Levico, they've redesigned their frames, working on the assumption that an all-round tube profile offers the best compromise between lateral strength and torsional stiffness. It is a deliberate choice made to exploit the benefits of oversized frame tubing. It's not an overstatement to claim that no other Italian framebuilder has been so instrumental in bringing about the wide use of aluminum in road frames, and that none other had more input into the design and fabrication of the tubing itself.
Given that Pegoretti has had a long association with the Italian tubing manufacturer Dedacciai -- in fact, throughout the 90's Dedacciai entrusted Pegoretti with the job of building prototype frames from their new tubesets to provide them with detailed feedback about their buildability -- it took many by surprise going into 2005 that Dario began building his steel frames exclusively out of Columbus Niobium Spirit tubing. Why Columbus for steel? Because as Dedacciai pushes the alchemistic envelope with the most modern alloys out there -- Scandium, Magnesium, and Aluminum -- Columbus (like Pegoretti, and like many of our customers) still believes in the viability of steel as a race-quality frame material. They're just as committed to refining the quality of steel as Dedacciai is to non-ferrous alloys.
In fact, all of the Niobium tubing Pegoretti uses is one-off. He insists that Columbus take the extra step to heat treat the tubes for him. While the stock version of the tubes has very good elongation qualities and thereby provides a nice bit of shock damping, heat treating them gives them a considerable increase in responsiveness under a load. Think of it this way: While a spring is springy by nature, a heat treated spring rebounds from compression far more quickly. In other words, a heat treated Niobium Spirit frameset will provide superior elasticity, making a Pegoretti feel like it's gliding on a lousy road surface to an extent unmatched by other tubesets.
One aside about Pegoretti sizing: Pegoretti frames 58cm and larger have dropped top tubes. 57cm and smaller frames are measured as center to center, but on the larger frames Dario drops the top tubes and extends both the seat and head tubes to compensate. The amount of drop varies with frame size, as do the extensions on the seat and head tubes, but ultimately this allows him to build larger frames both lighter and stiffer without compromising positioning on the bike.
