At first I didn't like the new Dogma F8, but it is starting to grow on me. I really love my 65.1 and the folks that are wondering why Pinarello is so good, I can say that the ride quality is brilliant. If it wasn't Team sky would have chosen another bike.
I also have an Tarmac S-works sl4 that is much lighter, but also more nervous and firm. I light bike doesn't mean a good riding bike automatically.
The 65.1 was more Pinarello. It was something different. The F8 is a better bike, but when you put a Canyon decal on it, people would believe it was a Canyon. I also don't like the seatstays below the toptube. A lot of aero bike have it, but i don't like it.
Maybe the most beautiful bike at the moment is the Colnago C60.
Team Sky are riding Pinarello's only because they are being paid 21 million euros to do so over three years. In fact Pinarello had to switch their manufacturing to a cheaper Chinese facility in order to be able to afford that sponsorship along with Movistars. You would be shocked if you saw photographs of the factory and I hazard most would be put off buying them, especially at the exhorbitant price they charge.
