I'm looking into getting the new Pinarello FP Due 105. Has anyone had any experiences of Pinarello's in the past?

    Yes - a few years back I had a pinarello surprise. Which was a low end pinarello at the time. Worth every last penny - an absolute monster of a bike - the accleration and stiffness took my breath away the first time I spun the pedals...and it was still get admirring comments many year later.
    There will those who say - youre paying for the name, flashhy paint job. My advice is don't die never having owned a pinarello ......and consider this...I brought mine for £1100 - had it eight years .....sold it for £600

    be sureto post some photos up here of it.
  • Ditto the above, you will not regret buying one. I have an FP2 with full 105 and love it. :D

    I've been riding a Prince since 2008 and it's bloody marvellous.

    Have an FP3 with Campag. Many upgrades over the last few years - 50mm carbon rims, Chorus shifters and mechs, Fizik Aliante saddle, Speedplay Zero stainless pedals.

    It really does ride well, especially at speed descending and cornering - very sure footed. Always gets admiring comments. I like it a lot.

    I think the framesets seem very good, the kit you fit it out with varies with budget. I took the approach of buying the best bike I could for my budget and then upgrading subsequently as time/money/ wife allowed. I lie, the wife isn't involved! :wink:

    love my pinarello, upgraded alot as well.

    the only downside to mine is that it is the sky colour scheme get the public turning heads all the time! its a bit daunting when i am huffing and puffing!

  • Thanks for your responses everyone. Looks like I can't go wrong and I'm putting the order in as I type.

    I'll post some pictures of the first ride...
