Got my Pinarello in August last year and have been happy with it since. I'm only an "entry level" Pinarello owner with an FP1 but it's been a great bike so far.

I was wondering, since I don't see many posts here on on some of the other popular cycling forums regarding Pinarello's, are they that popular in the UK?. I've never seen another one on the roads up here in my neck of the woods.

The whole reason I'm asking this is because my part time business is web developing and I was thinking of starting a website and forums for UK Pinarello owners and wanted to suss out some interest.

Any other Pinarello folks out there?. 8)

    I bet that is SERIOUSLY quick!

    For those of you who think there's no difference in carbon grades and carbon frames, well there's the proof, don't EVER put the Nero Corsa in the same category as that beauty right there.

    And it's not even all carbon - it's 50% alu - it's just a very classy looking machine.

    Thanks, carbon forks and seat stays. Alu frame. Entry level Pinarello. I love it. 8)

    It is quick, but only as quick as the rider sat on it. I'm not that quick although I'm upping my average speed gradually, now up in the 16-18mph bracket which I am quite happy about. :D
