Hi ,

This is my first post here on weight weenies.
Today my new frame finally arrived.
Now time to build it up :lol:

Components :

Group : Campagnolo Record ( 10 speed )
Saddlepost : 3T Doric Ltd
Saddle : Selle Italia SLR Teknologica
Wheels : Campagnolo Hyperon / Corima Aero
Pedals : Speedplay Zero Stainless
Steer : ???

Anyone suggestions for stem and bar ??

I thought off Deda Zero Nero for stem , but maybe to heavy ?

Oh man, that is stunning :shock: So much nicer than the ubiquitous red Prince's seen round these parts.

Congratulations PoH, can't wait to see the full build.

FWIW I don't think you can go far wrong with Deda Zero 100 stem and Newton bars (not an exotic choice I grant you though).

very nice frame and I like the color....I especially like the way Pinarello integrates the bit or armor as a seatstay protector at the BB area. I wish all carbon frame manufactureres would do this.

Thank you for the comments , In real life the color is even more beautiful.
The blue has an metallic shine which is very special.
I saw that the riders of Garmin had a 3T combo ( bar and stem ) with a blue line in it .
Anybody know where to find it ? ( Probably only made for Garmin :? )
I can hardly wait to build it up .

3T would go nicely I think.
What size is the frame?
Did you get an actual weight of frame and fork?

What a beautiful frame. Cant wait to see more pics.
I myself owm Corima Aero clinchers, and I have had Hyperon clinchers on my mind, since they came out. I have not pulled the trigger yet.
How do you compare the two wheelsets to eachother?
Which Hyperon model is it (year) and how much do they weigh?

Hi Gregorio ,

Frame size is 56
I don't have a weight of frame and fork alone.
Total weight frame + fork + seatpostclamp + headset = 1730g
It is not the lightest but it is nice to race I think

The hyperon is also tubular and is more comfortable than the Corima's
Also accelaration is quicker with the Hyperon in my opinion
The weight of the hyperons is measured 1253g without skewers
They're from 2008.
The Corimas measured 1428g wihout skewers
The corimas are also very nice to ride , very stiff and very strong .

Wow Pascal, very very nice bike!
Finally a carbon Italian friend for my C50 :wink:
I'm looking forward to ride next to that Prince.

The frame looks absolutely stunning and the colours even more so.... :P
I would like to see it build up with Deda components - expecially with the Campione bar. It would fit the frame absolutely perfect!
For sure 3T would be another good choice, but please, promise me to keep it classic :lol:

The front looks like it didn't survive a crash.
