    You can't argue with the figures and I'm sure it rides nice but the Dogma(especially in Sky colours) doesn't do it for me. It 'looks' heavy to me and I don't know why. As long as you like it that's all that matters and you can't hide the fact you have some great kit on it.

    I like this alot!! This is probably the first thing I buy when I win the lottery :lol:

    One question though, I thought these came with SKY decals on the headtube and seatpost have you removed them?

    I agree with the heavy look - that was kind of the aim. I wanted to get it sub UCI yet keep it bulky. The puffy bar tape, bulky saddle and deep section wheels were how it got it to look bulky. It would have looked (superficially) lighter it i used lizardskin tape, selle italia slr saddle, 3t ronduto bar and non-aero wheels.

    That is on my wish list! Black brakes and black chainrings, but just cannot decide on the chainrings! Im not sure if I want to sink cash into the group-set as soon enough campys electronic will be out which will force the price of the di2 down - at that point i will consider options.

    Either way gravitas brakes are what i really want but are just too expensive - looking for a good second hand. (would save 145g!)

    The 2010 sky models decal cannot be removed (although i have heard otherwise but the one i saw in person was lacquered but then again that was an actual team bike) Best source to find out about that would be to call up the Pinarello distributers, Yellow LTD.

    But yes, you are right, mine too came with stickers which i easily removed with the help of a hair drier.


    Thank you for the kind comments everyone, I appreciate it

    I know, but something of that value would have to ride well wouldn't it?

    In ride quality i personally look at two things, responsiveness and trust.

    By trust i mean a combination of things; handling and the solid feeling you get from a stiff and well build kit. Everything is superbly intact and lets me more confidently push my self physically. Like standing on a throne to fix a light bulb as opposed to standing on a wonky ladder.

    Im an adrenaline junkie when it comes to sprinting and descending. Needless to say stiffness and geometry are very important for those - for example yesterday I had my first decent (on the dogma) where an aero position was faster than pedalling and what a feeling, despite having some serious cross winds i managed to crush my top speed - most importantly, confidently (with the right amount of adrenaline).

    The carbon cockpit + 303s makes for a ridiculously stiff front end..

    The rear is also very stiff (maybe even too much, even a non cyclist could figure that out from the beefy rear triangle.

    I have respectable experience on a madone and a r3; the R3 did not give me the confidence, at all..although that was a geometry issue..the not so stiff madone did ironically, because that, like the dogma fit like a glove.

    One thing i am not happy about is the sram chainset but thats not a keeper anyway.

    I see what your points are but again ride quality changes from person to person imo - a lot of it also depends on the handlebar, fit and saddle - for me, they are spot on!

    lovely bike but, but black and blue just does not work.You never wear black and blue together it's a fashion disaster.also,i aint a fan of amateurs riding/wearing pro kit it is as bad as the fat censored clown footy fans wearing man u shirts pretending they are rooney.

    That's a bit unfair, I'm no great fan of the bike but one of the great things about cycling is that we DO have access to pro kit. I gave up motorbike racing because even at club level it was impossible to get top kit.

    Besides you don't know how good the OP is, he could very well grind you into the dust :wink:

    If someone is prepared to spend that amount of money on a bike I would assume that they were quite serious about their cycling, and probably could grind me into the dust :lol:

    My bike cost a fraction of the price of this bike, but I have a Team Sky top that somebody gave me as a birhtday gift, I don't see anything wrong with wearing it. I like the top, I like the team and I certainly don't have a fat gut :lol:

    I don't get whats happening on here lately with all this what people can and can't wear :roll: but if the OP needs to find a new home for that bike, it would match my top nicely :lol:

    And what they can and cannot ride, apparently.

    Bad, innit?

    Thats a looker.

    I think the black and blue combo works well. The blue is a turquoisey colour so its light enough to work with the black.

    Nice garden too :lol:
  • Do you have a full build list please?

    as it happens the missus has worked for mattew williamson and LVMH - and she would have a whole lot to say about black and turquoise not matching. Not the same as navy blue. What you are thinking of is blue and a different tone of blue together, that is a clash! I read an article years back in the economics how (ironically) black and blue is one of the best "some technical term i cannot remember" matches which is why US presidents are so often seen is blue shits under black suits second to white shirts. also, if the "fat arses" didn't buy the rooney shirts, manu couldn't afford half the things they do, its business..

    on an other note, thank you for the comments, it really is a dream come true for me and i do spend a whole lot of my time cycling and related technologies.

    i will write up a build list later today, but i do not have the weight for all the parts.

    Btw, she is at 6560g as of today!

    Love it. So prefer the blue to green from this years TDF. A Pina is a long way near the top of my wish list.

    It does not bode well for my wardrobe / fashion sense that I had to google both of these. Perhaps I should only go out at night :)
