I know that a lot of weightweenies over here are not fond of Pinarello, but I took the leap and ordered one. :twisted:
I wanted to have a pure and stiff Italian frameset with history and Italian flair. I am going to use it next to my Specialized S-works sl4, that I like very much.

It was a very close call between the Dogma and the Colnago C59, but when I saw the Dogma in real life I felt love was in the air.
The fact that the Dogma is probably a tiny bit stiffer then the C59 also influenced my decision. I am more of a big strong sprinter so this frameset suits me better.
At the moment the frameset is build up by my LBS with the parts I collected. The groupset will be Campa Record with 3T components. I can choose a lot of different wheels, but I will probably use my Lightweight Meilenstein clinchers or my Fulcrum Racing Speed XLR (dark label) wheels in the Dogma. For bad weather I can use Shamals dark label. I expect to pick up the bike in a few weeks time. Here some pictures (sorry for the not so good quality) of the frameset. The size is 57.5. I don't know the weight of the frameset, but I believe it is less then a full painted frameset. My frameset is naked carbon with some shiny clearcoat except for the painted parts. So I find it a challenge to get the bike below the 6.8kg. :mrgreen:

Thanks. I was looking at a Dogma for years but I was not totally convinced. Recently the frameset grew on me big time and this 65.1 generation looks great imho. :-)

This is not my bike, but the bike of the owner of my LBS. It is a size 55 I believe and it looks great. It gives a good impression of the build up frameset.

I think you should go with the matching most handlebar ;-)

I am thinking about it, but it won't be a Most. My LBS offers a better alternative imho that is painted by a professional painter in the matching colours of the frameset. Expensive but beautiful.

I'm not typically a Dogma fan, but that looks sweet.
The colour scheme works perfectly.

Looking forward to see it come together.

Is that a threaded bottom bracket I see?

The bike on the picture is not my bike but the bike of my LBS. My bike will almost look the same but better. :twisted:

Funny how the appearance of a traditional threaded BB shell is these days becoming the sign of a top class/can't be beaten frame.

I'm one of the "anti-Pina" guys, but deep down I think I'm just jealous... ;-)

That is class, class, class. Love it. Great parts spec too.
