That aero crap about half the bike being "invisible" to the wind and the forks acting as sails is an amazing level of bs and misinterpretation of aero results.....even for pinarello.

Price wise you are right. In terms of how team riders will perform on them however :wink:

Nothing like a new Dogma to have the usual suspects foaming at the mouth about unnecessary this and that and terrible weight penalties.

Meanwhile they keep selling worldwide and winning Grand Tours.

Hey ho.

Pinarellos model is to pile on enough carbon to maximize ride quality, then mislead about mass. They're good bikes but it's too bad they can't just be honest about it.

As much as I loved my FPX, I have not been able to to stomach the Dogma's ever since they went carbon. I somewhat knew that it would come down to that on the evolutionary platform within the cycling world but not sure what to make of the new F8.

I understand that the squiggly forks and seatstays were not everybodys cup of tea.. but it is a trademake that made Pinarello what it is today...so to remove that trademark would be like debadging a prestigous Louis Vuitton hadbag.. Others would know that it was still a Louis Vuitton, however it just wouldn't be the same.. thats my take on the F8.

Not to mention the bowl legged fork... Hmmmm...

don't like it personally, the trend to make road bikes look like TT bikes does nothing for me.

Sure it would be great to ride though, and I do think it's an improvement on the wavy legged Dogma

The similarities between the F8 and the Willier aren't exactly overwhelming. Both fine frames. Have a fondness for Willier lines.

Will these aero road bikes end up looking similar like the current crop of TT bike?

Lame review.

I'm waiting for bikesnobnyc's review. I want to know whether the new Dogma handles corners like a prostitute, etc.

It's the combination of the arched top tube and the seat stays meeting the seat tube 2/3's the way up that made me think of the Wilier.

The BMC TMR01 has the seat stay/seat tube thing too, but without the arched top tube.

I don't like the arched top tube because of the reduced clearance. My Cento SR1 has a Look-695-like top tube, which I much prefer.
