haha sorry read the title wrong! Thought you were asking for the difference between the F8 and F8 Disk. As far as the disk frame goes haven't seen a lot about but have seen some photos of some so they must exist. The weights of F8s have never really been well published due to not being overly impressive!

They are both overweight...

Someone recently posted the frameset weights for a size 54cm F8 non-disc.
It was something like 1025 gm for the frame, 405 for the fork and 215 for the seatpost.
With the disc, you can add some notable grams to the above frame and fork weight.
Then factor in weight for the calipers, levers, wheels with extra spokes, etc.

Then you may come to the conclusion that there is far better out there for the money. :wink:

A bike is more than weight only.

Define better?
While I agree no bicycle should be priced that high, does ride quality matter to you? It's like saying there is more aero than a F8 but overall is a great package.

Competitive Cyclist have the weights listed, they are listing the disc version at 20 grams lighter which I would call BS on.

I mean better. I mean lighter. I mean more appealing visually. The whole package.
And more affordable at the same time.

I never got the whole ride quality aura of the new Pinas. Even after testing...
I think that aura comes from the glow of having spent so much on a stock bike (when you could have gone custom.)

Granted, a dick comment, but Pina Koolaid, I do not drink. :wink:

You're saying the new Pinarello's are not as good as the previous generation?

No, I am not implying that at all.
