    I've never heard of a Zhiant and don't know anything about that model Pinarello but I don't believe that any bike by them represents much value for money. I have only ever ridden two of them and thought one was OK (but only that) and the other (a Dogma F8 costing more than £10K) was one of the most uncomfortable bikes I have ever ridden. That said, If you like it, want it and can afford it what's VFM got to do with anything?

    Yours is the only opinion that really matters and you seem to have made up your mind already. I do however stand by my own opinion that you are paying a lot just for the privilege of having Pinarello stickers on the frame and, having googled the model, I also think that it's been touched by the ugly stick. If it was me, I would be looking elsewhere.

    That is a lot of money for a bike with a Sora groupset and mechanical disks.
  • Hi .. what would be a good alternative? I thought pinarello was a good make?
