    Wow! :shock:

    When I've seen Pinarello's on websites before they have never really appealed to me, but this pic has just changed that!

    Is this the Team Sky Colour option?

    I want one!

    Keep the cranks... and don't ride until BST. That salt and grit.. uhh. Stay with the Ribble until a sunny cloudless day. It may take a while but your first ride should be euphoria :D
    Why tidy the house when you can clean your bike?

  • Very nice looking bike. I like the white cranks,what make are they? Did they come with the bike or did you buy them?
  • Nice bike.

    I've been looking at a Pinarello myself and wonder if you can answer a few questions for me?

    What size frame do you have and what is its standover height? (I'm only 5'7" and not sure of a 46.5 xs or 50cm.)

    Also, did you do a test ride? How does the bike feel? I ask this because at almost 8.5kg it's heavy for a full carbon bike.

    Cheers

    Hi yes bud this is the team sky colour, they do it in black-red and white, but this in my opinion is way nicer.

    yeah im itching to get out on it, but i wouldnt risk it with this weather, most of my mates have come off at some point this winter, and yeah the cranks came with the bike, they are made by pinarellos in house tuning company "MOst" but everything else is ultegra.

    If you been sized up they of taken your arm length, torso, leg length etc etc as we are all made different. so what should fit you in theory might be different, i'm 6ft 4" and a 57cm fits me fantastic due to the short legs i have for my height.

    as for weight i was aware of this but the fact is the frame is very stiff and quite light which is what i was after and after changing the heavy wheels, stem, seat and seat post i managed to save over 1.1kg :shock:

  • @ wicked

    Do you ride a pinarello?

    We maybe the same height but i'm only a 29.5" inseam, can you match that? What's the clearance like for you?

    Cheers.
  • Very very nice.
