Hello to all , My name is Charlie Pellegrino . This here is an overdue introduction. I have been lurking for almost a year... Eddie Albert is correct all around regarding the Peckham... I had a Peckham at this years Cirque. It is " pretty good but not great".

Frank Peckham is still kicking around . He is in his 80's. Jamie Swan told me that he's a mighty strong mtb rider for a coot...
         When I did a repaint , I emailed Frank . He sent me some new decals and bike specs.
