We ream the seat tube to the correct size before painting. Since seatposts have different tolerances (especially for carbon post) in respect to the nominal diameter, if you experience any problem  inserting the post please check the diameter of the post with a digital caliper.

For carbon posts we strongly recommend using carbon paste to prevent slipping. Each frame is checked with a carbon Fizik Cyrano post.

We also ream and face the head tube before painting.

 

We also ream and face the head tube before painting.

Please put some grease inside the head tube before pressing in the headset cups.

 

We retap and face the BB shell after welding and before painting, It is not necessary to reface. If you decide to do it, please don't reface the shell to the bare metal, leave the primer to protect the surface.

The shell is at the correct tolerance width specs,  70mm +-0.5 for Shimano and 69.2 - 70.8mm  for Campagnolo .

Facing and reaming are all performed by hand with Campagnolo tools.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

We  recommends the use of JP Weigle Frame Saver or similar product with any steel frame .
Frame Saver is a proven rust preventative that is applied to the inside of the tubes and eliminates the possibility of the frame rusting from the inside out.
It is essential in areas with high humidity and/or a corrosive environment and highly recommended anywhere.
Frame Saver is available at better bike shops everywhere.
It’s always a good idea to periodically inspect your frame inside and out for any damage or corrosion. Keeping your frame clean, especially around the cable stops and bottom bracket cable guide, will ensure that you spot any problem before it becomes serious.
These areas can collect moisture and corrosives such as perspiration and sports drinks which can damage paint and if not corrected eat into the metal. In addition to keeping your frame clean, a coat of automotive wax applied regularly will reduce the possibility of damage from corrosion and ensure a long life for your frame. You should also periodically remove the seatpost from the frame and examine the inside of the seat tube for rust as well as lubricating the post with either a carbon paste (for carbon seatposts) or grease or oil for aluminum or steel seatposts.
Lubricating the seatpost will ensure that it doesn’t gall with the seat tube becoming difficult if not impossible to remove safely. Periodic routine maintenance and inspection by an authorized Pegoretti dealer is advisable, especially if the frame has been involved in a crash or experienced potential damage.
