    Looks good! They were made in the same way/jig as the Pinarello Prince in Italy, using Easton tubing.

    Defo a keeper.

    Mid 00's I think

    Edit: they (this and the Pinarello Prince) later got the wavy Onda fork

  • Is yours a Bernini? Doesnt look like one..

    One of my bikes is an 09 Opera Bernini with the Onda fork and carbon rear.. Very light frame fork combo based on the Pinarello Prince SL but improved and stiffer.

    The Opera Bernini is a superb bike.. Handles and sprints exceptionally.. The Prince SL was a professional racing bike so no surprisrs the Opera is good

    I absolutely love riding it. I bought mine 2nd hand in pristine condition and upgraded all components to quality carbon bits, Deda, Ritchey and Campag Zonda wheels. It absolutely flies and corners on rails.

    They're Mike Burrows wheels off a giant. Up for sale if you fancy them.
