It's sure rococo, but still, this is by far the least rococo carbon fiber Pinarello ever. The ones we have already seen are much much more rococo, unfortunately. And heavy as hell too, hehehehe. Wrongest bike brand ever, IMHO. Shame on Pinarello. They should learn something from Campy or Ducati or Ferrari.

At least in this frame, the aero concerns made them discard all that meaningless shapes in terms of real function, the Onda thing, curvature in stays and fork and so on...

But that is the first rococo designed TT bike on the market. And that's not a good thing... Yuk.

I think it looks fine, better than the Ceepo. That said, it will clearly be beauty in the eye of the owner, as is the case with most Pinarello models.
I'm sure g_doraz will rock it like a rocket and dominate in the TTs (even though he's a strong TT rider already, so it has little to do with the bike).

I would however *love* to see it with a proper, highly detailed and elaborate Rococo paint scheme. Then I would consider buying it. Frames with this sort of shape really need to be played up. At the moment having the highlight colour being the only the fairings makes it look a bit like tooth-fillings moulded onto the tooth.

Looks bad (worse?) with the O-symmetric rings.

I hate pinarello, but I have to admit this frame is hoooootttt!!!! Handlebar and stem looks great. Brakes look like the most aero ever, much more than the best until now: cervélo... I suspect pinarello with the input of the british riders after the olimpics came out with something great. Graphics apart this and wiggo tt position seems like it's gonna hurt many starting tomorrow!!!

even though it is ultimately up to the rider and not the frame.

Can we please move past this when talking about TT bikes. Or any bike for that matter.

Of course the rider makes it go fast. I want to find out it it'll help me go faster.
