My last bike was look 555 06 model with dura 7800 groupset.

It was amazing bike worked very well. but this year ive got chance to change

my bike so I was searching some bike for few week.

and last week I bring new bike pinarello.

my first ride was last weekend. around 110km alone.

first of all bike was slightly heavy than look 555 it might be due to groupset and

wheelset as well. but i can feel benefit of pina was straight sprint.

Im not sprinter but i could feel stiffness of frame. look 555 was little bit smooth

when I dancing on hill or flat road. I should have more time with it to find out character of

bike. but Im very satisfy about it.

    Very nice! Size 51.5?
    How did you manage to get one with a decent gruppo on it and and not shimano? Such a shame they do not sell this as a frame would buy one (probably).
    It’s the most beautiful sport in the world but it’s governed by ***ts who have turned it into a crock of ****.

    the only part of the groupset not shimano is the chainset i think

    You are quite correct, how the hell did I miss that!? My eyes must have been drawn to the lovely frame.

  • Not usually a massive fan of Pinarello based on looks, but my LBS has several in and this frame is the first I've seen that looks really really sweet. Nice one mate 8)

  • It's no wonder it's heavy, look at all that extra stearer tube you've got there!

    :D
  • Very nifty. My LBS has one on display - sure looks good.

    I'm curious - exactly which part of the assembly process did you need the big rubber mallet for???

  • I love the look of the fpquattro, i gave one a test the other day, rode perfectly was very responsive.
    how are you finding the pina?
    obviously you've ridden it longer than i got the chance to.
    how would you compare it to your old look?

    my old look has some problem when I was dancing. frame was little bit twisted sometimes.
    maybe I just felt that anyway. I havent got anychance to ride yet.
    however Im sure it is stiff enough for me.
    at least. look much better. :D

  • fair mate, well am definately looking to invest in one.
    will let you know when i have taken the plunge
    £2800 but haria has upgraded wheels, a nice 3t stem, san marco seat and campag crank
    so a bit more ;)

    I bought them around 2500 because of preorder i think it was lucky.

    saddle and wheel set and stem was from my last bike. so I spent around 2800

    but actual price would be little more expensive.
