Welcome to WWs.

Lovely bike! I favor the Opera's over a Pinarello any day. Much more exclusive. Excellent build. Just cut the steeerer.
Where did you get those wheels and how do you find them?

Very nice build with the Corima's!
P.S. and don't take the advise to cut the steerer. The stem clamps much better if the steerer extends a bit above the stem; far less chance to ruin the carbon steerer.

Nice. Classy bike - I like the colour too.

What is the equivalent Pinarello and what is the difference other than the brand? I always thought the Opera thing was a bit confusing which is probably why they dropped it.

Opera are still being made. I would say the Paris is the equivalent frame to the Il Canova or FP6 as it's now called

Rides like a dream, very stiff but like all the pinarello stable bikes also very comfortable, all the power through the peadls converts to forward motion.

Very good handling, sure footed, basically does everything you ask of it.

Pinarello or Opera .....you will love em!!
