Pegoretti: “Tornemo Indrio" (Back to the Roots)

We had mentioned that Dario Pegoretti was holding a “Tornemo indrio" (back to the roots) 4 day workshop where he would teach how to build bike frames with the traditional Italian technique; original blog post here.
One of the attendees posted this video:

Excerpt from story:
"Dario was quick to dispel the mythology of his craft "they're not planes, just 8 tubes welded together” - but those welded tubes hide a great deal of calculation, hard work, skill and sensitivity. It's easy to create a bicycle shaped object, but to create a bicycle that not only works but is a joy to use, well, that takes a lot." Full story at story at  road.cc
